Color Ideas for Painting Homes
- Designer Diane Stewart at Color Sense Consulting is brilliant at blending existing materials (brick, stone, sofa cushions, etc.) with new colors. No need to buy furniture the right paint color can bring everything together.
- Architect & exterior color consultant Bob Krohn at Live In Color KC (ed. note: Bob is no longer in business) takes the stress out with his hassle-free approach. He’ll spend some time getting a sense of “your” color and then deliver a rendering so you can see your “new” house before painting even begins.

Sherwin Williams Color Visualizer and Benjamin Moore’s Color Gallery are both helpful online color tools. They are good guides, but it’s still best to put paint on the wall rather than rely on a computer monitor.
With the Paint Quality Institute’s Color Tool you can see the relationships between colors – why some look good together and others not.
