Apartment Makeover

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

By: Kaitlyn McFarren

 

It was time for some fresh paint at this apartment complex. The property manager was looking for a color scheme that would update the look of the buildings.

Taking a cue from contemporary buildings that employ multiple colors and materials, our color consultant composed three color schemes. By using a different color inside the lines of the trim between the windows, it adds interest and dimension. Transitioning from dark navy to white trim creates a crisp clean look and helps separate the two siding colors. She chose colors that would complement the natural surroundings.

 

Photoshop renders:

Brainstorm Bronze and Jute Cinder and Horizon Gray Jojoba and Croquet

 

The property manager posted the renderings for the building occupants to vote for. The result is beautiful! The new colors bring life and personality back into the building and give it an updated feel.

Color Resources 2

By CertaPro Painters of North Seattle

The best way to start your design project is to find images that illustrate your vision and your personal taste. Design and home improvement magazines offer inspirational images with the latest trends to help you identify the direction you would like to take your project. Websites like Pinterest and Houzz are ideal for collecting inspiration for your project online.

Free color swatches and brochures at the paint store are a great resource. Some paint companies allow you to order samples in larger sizes to better help you visualize your project. It is possible that your local paint store will have a color expert on staff, ready to help you decide on color.

A fandeck is a collection of color samples, usually organized like a color wheel. It is a great tool for considering color options because it provides all of the colors together. It also can help you coordinate colors. Specialty fandecks contain only variations of different color schemes to help you put together your design.

Sherwin-Williams Color Visualizer and Benjamin Moore Personal Color Viewer are tools designed for those of us who learn by seeing. These online tool allows you to either upload a picture of your space, or select from their stock images. You can browse all of their paint color collections and experiment using different color combinations. It’s important to keep in mind that these tools aren’t going to render with complete accuracy due to discrepancies in color appearance between the computer monitor and the wall. A great time to use the color visualizers is when you are painting the exterior of your home and would like to change up the placement of the colors. Use the color visualizer tools to upload your photo and experiment with using different combinations of color.

Sherwin-Williams Chip-It is handy when you are using the internet to find inspiration for your home improvement project. Like any computer color tool, it may not be 100% accurate to the color that ends up on the wall. It is helpful in helping you to find a coordinating Sherwin-Williams color to any image you find online.

Color paint samples are the most precise method of representing the finished product. Samples allow you to view the color in a larger scale, and demonstrates the effect of sheen. In order to see the most accurate depiction of the color, paint a sample swatch in the area where the paint will be used.  Colors appear different under different lighting conditions and at different times of the day. Whether you are using color swatches or painting samples on the wall, always consider viewing the color throughout the day, and with different lights turned on in the interior.
