  • See which of your favorite colors are reflected in the existing furniture.
  • Also, check if any of your scored shades create a particularly beautiful color harmony with your existing furnishings - or a chic contrast.
  • See if the selected hues are really bright enough to keep the room dark. Which of them would you use lightened?
  • Imagine the individual shades over a large area on the wall and consider whether they do not look too powerful in "clenched form".
  • Do you want to select only one color or maybe two harmonizing tones to paint different wall zones? Which match?
