Choosing a colour from colour card

Many people find it difficult to choose colours from colour cards, as a small sample is unable to convey the colour’s true nature and intensity. A good starting point is to choose slightly lighter and more muted hues from the colour card than you had first thought. Large expanses of colour appear to be more intense than small samples.

In the case of very light and muted tones, bolder choices are possible as these tones are themselves restrained and subdued. If you are specifically looking for a coloured rather than a near-white wall, it is usually worth selecting the next darker shade on the colour card. Indoors, pure white is generally only used for ceilings, and other shades of white are in fact off-white. As well as “Painters’ White” (G497), many useful alternatives are shown in Row F at the top of the Symphony colour card.
