A great new paint color sampling product
I went to a client consultation this week and, lo and behold, she had some interesting samples. They were peel and stick actual paint samples that you can just splat up there on your wall, moving it around as necessary.
You don’t have to have any more little paint dabs or minuscule samples taped up on your walls any more.
I had heard about this company, online, but hadn’t seen these in person or put them in action myself until that day.
I have to say, it is super convenient and very easy to use!
But first, some of my favorite whites and then I’ll link you to their product below.
SW Extra White
I used SW Extra White in this recent remodel project on the trim, cabinets, and that paneled wall area above the fireplace. I needed a crispness in that white and it pairs nicely with the wall color, SW Repose Gray.
I kept the same SW Extra White on their upper kitchen cabinets. It paired well with the Caesarstone counters and the BM Newportbury Blue base cabinets.
In this home’s remodel, below, I used SW Alabaster, a slightly warmer white, on walls, trim and ceilings.
The shutters here (which were in place and we didn’t want to re-paint them) were actually a slightly even warmer white. By going with Alabaster, it blended enough to look the same and still gave a bright, white, crisp look. I love this white and use it often.
That is a textural grasscloth look vinyl wallcovering there in the framed wall section on the back wall.
SW Aesthetic White
In the remodel of my kitchen and overall in my home, I’ve used SW Aesthetic White. I like that it isn’t too bright, because I have it all over everywhere, kitchen cabinets, walls, trim, ceiling. It’s a softer white, but again, still looks white overall when not paired with another brighter white.
SW Aesthetic White was also used on this remodel project, in the kitchen on the cabinets, and then on all the walls, ceiling, trim, etc.
This kitchen remodel, below, was done in a custom mix that matched their trim color throughout the house. It was an almost perfect match to SW Creamy, which has a slightly warmer color tone to it. It worked great with our Taj Mahal countertops.
BM White Dove
This kitchen, below, has been pinned about a million times on Pinterest!
I do love it, it was such a dramatic before and after. The white we used here was BM White Dove. It also paired nicely with Taj Mahal countertops.
Paint Sample Tool
So here’s the new paint sample tool I tried at my appointment this past week.
Samplize let’s you peel and stick those large, actual paint colors up there on the wall with ease! Move them around, take them down when you want.
No more little dabs of color all over your walls for months while you agonize over a paint color!
They have Sherwin Williams, Benjamin Moore, and Farrow and Ball. I think they’ve got you covered!
Now, pin this image, below, to Pinterest to save for your reference later on, when you’re needing a good white paint OR some fab paint color samples to slap up on your walls.
