    I see that so much on Facebook from people asking for ideas. And of course the pics on FB always looks a different shade.

    I am dealing with this now! I’ve said from the beginning of our building process… I can’t make those selections until I make these selections. You have to do it all together!! And it’s tricky when you don’t even have drywall in your space. LOVE your perspective.

      Crystal, thank you! that’s okay if you don’t have drywall yet- just get true samples of each of your hard finishes, look at them in different lighting, and then look at them in the new construction at different times of day in different lighting. Then when you do have wall board up, you will have it narrowed down so it will be very easy to tell. Congrats on your new home:))

    brilliant show and tell on colour

    Sorry I missed this! Just closed on a client’s new construction. Funny, I think her gray paint looks blue in some light and she hates the backspash and says it has too much brown in it…maybe it does. And guess what color the cabinets are?? 🙂

    • Elizabeth Hudson Scruggs February 8, 2018 at 8:58 pm - Reply

      Sorry I missed you when I was live too Debbie!! If you think it looks blue, then it is- it has a blue undertone and is being brought out by something else in the space, likely the backsplash. I’m guessing the cabinets are a version of white- most likely a creamy “white” which is making the backsplash read brown. And if they are creamy, they are making the gray look blue, and the result is probably a “dirty” look….amiright?

    • Debbie Ruth Turkett February 9, 2018 at 10:21 am - Reply

      Yep! Not to mention, down here the hurricane window glass has a green tint to it. So selecting colors without that glass in the space could be a real problem! Maybe that’s what happened. Designers select the finishes, but many times, I think they missed the mark.

    Great advice, I needed to hear that today. Trying to change the color in my Kitchen and want the newer colors but just they just don’t look good in my house.

    • Elizabeth Hudson Scruggs February 8, 2018 at 8:55 pm - Reply

      thanks Sandi- hope it helped you some:) listen, when dealing with a space with existing fixed elements, there are really only one or two paint colors that will be correct. In a kitchen, you need to take the cabinet, top, floor, and backsplash (if it’s staying) color and determine the predominant undertone. With that nailed down, the wall color can really only be one of a handfull of choices. A room will tell you what color it needs to be. Don’t get roped in to thinking you have to have “new” colors. Use a nuetral wall color that works with your fixed elements and then bring in any ‘new’ colors in accessories or artwork. The wall color in a space never needs to be the star- it only needs to support and highlight the dominate elements to make them shine!

    White is so hard to pick!

    • Elizabeth Hudson Scruggs February 8, 2018 at 9:25 pm - Reply

      I know right Kimberly? that’s one of the reasons I started studying color early on in my career. When painting millwork, if you don’t get the correct white, then everything will look wrong- it can end up looking off, or even worse…..looking dingy. Thanks for watching and commenting!! great to see you in the car line this week:)
