My Colortopia

Do you struggle with picking out paint colors?  Do the terms flat, semi-gloss, and eggshell make you all nervous and confused?  Do you have a beautiful rug that you want to match and coordinate colors to but you're not sure where to start?

My Colortopia to the rescue!!

This newly launched site provides inspiration, tools, and advice (from the Colortopia team) to help you build confidence throughout the painting process (selecting colors, buying the paint, getting it on the walls).

The Colortopia Team is composed of some amazing bloggers that post helpful tips and strategies that they use to tackle the challenging issues of paint selection and color palette.

When selecting paint colors for our home, we chose colors that made us feel relaxed but still made a statement.  We prefer to be surrounded by calming colors likes blues, greens, and tans.  Colors like reds and oranges make us antsy.  And you don’t want an antsy Michelle!

Are you unsure which colors suit you and your personality?  The following quiz may help!

The quiz suggested blues and tans for my quiet, beach loving self.  I'd say that's a pretty close match!

Did you feel the quiz provide you with colors that would work well in your home?  What is your biggest struggle when it comes to picking out paint?  Tell me all about the favorite color combo the quiz selected for you.
