Designer Q&A

Q: When I try to find a new paint color, I go broke testing sample colors. Any suggestions for finding the right shade without going through eight sample containers?

Have you tried the C2 Ultimate Paint Chip? It is seven times as large as the average-size chip and helps you visualize the paint quite well. Or buy a fan deck of the paint brand you prefer. Then you can hold up all the chips you want without making a further investment.
