Sherwin-Williams Color Visualizer: Living Room & Kitchen

I've been playing with this free online program for about an hour now.  Sherwin-Williams lets you upload a picture of a room, use selection tools to label and identify walls, and then create a virtual make-over with different color palettes.

Here's a picture taken from the living room facing the kitchen/front door. I definitely want blue walls in the living room but I'm having a hard time deciding what to do with the kitchen/entrance area (please ignore that hideous wood panel in the center, I'll have to figure out what to do with that later).  Here are some options I was playing with...

Option 1:  Liquid Blue & Fun Yellow (very bold...and too much)

Option 2: Spa & Cucumber (getting closer...)

Option 3: Liquid Blue & Narcissus (almost there...)

I was pretty settled on something very similar to Option 3 because I like the clean, neutral feel of "Narcissus" and I think I like the placement of the neutral tone in contrast to the bright blue is nice.  I am still undecided on the brightness of the blue.  I don't want to go too bright but I also want it to be recognizable as blue.

Option 4: Tame Teal & Narcissus (my favorite so far...)

I am very open to feedback & suggestions so please leave those comments!

  1. Love option 4! the Tame teal is just a bit more.... tame :-) I do like the Narcissus... we may steal the paint color as well as the color visualizer!
