Picking Out the Perfect Paint Color — My Craft Room/Office Remodel!

A couple of weeks ago I introduced you to a really cool new site — Glidden’s My Colortopia. I loved taking the quiz that told me paint colors that I would like based on my personality. Such a great idea!!

I’m working on redoing my office right now. With my Kitchen and Family Room Remodel, the apple green doesn’t really fit in with the new grey/turquoise/yellow color scheme.

Plus, I am trying to come up with a better storage system for all of my crafting supplies. So I went on the Colortopia site, and I found a really cool tool that is helping me with my Craft Room Decorating Dilemma. It’s called — My Image Inspiration.

What is so cool is that I can take a picture and it will pick out paint that goes along with the picture. So I can pick out a main color, PLUS it helps me figure out the accent colors. I love that!!

I uploaded a really pretty SPRING fabric swatch with the colors of my home, and it gave me 6 paint colors and swatches. It’s a great tool for bringing the colors in your home together.


I love the blues and greys that it recommended. Plus, it brought in a little of the yellow color too!

I’d love your opinion on a new color for my craft room/office!!

Are you working on a room in YOUR home??

Upload a picture that YOU love and see all of the colors that My Image Inspiration picks for you!!!

And while you are over there, check out the Colortopia blog — with tons of great paint advice and information. And there is also a question and answer section on the blog where you can ask questions and get a personalized answer!

Have a Beautiful Day!! 


I have been sponsored by Glidden brand paint to write this post, but all thoughts are 100% mine. xox


PS — Don’t miss out on these awesome giveaways that are going on right now:



  1. I like the Artic blue, its not as bright as the pantry door, yet not as soft as the island. I think it would bring everything together really well. Plus the walls in the kitchen are kind of greyish so I like the idea of blue on the walls. :) Good Luck.

  2. I just painted our sitting room Misty Summer Day and am totally in love. Tried going in the direction Shelley Smith (HoS) did with Autumn Haze but it was a little too brown for me. I feel like MSD has the perfect amount of yellow to it and no red tones at all!!!

  3. I’m redecorating an old house right now for me to move in (hold your fingers crossed) and this quiz is quite cute and helpful tool.

    Got just the colors I was thinking about.

  4. OH this is such a PERFECT tool! Thanks for sharing, you’re so inspiring! Beautiful rooms by the way :)


  5. I love the misty summer day and then I think using either sweet baby boy or Clear blue sky as an accent color. I really like the green, but I can see what you mean about it not flowing with the kitchen.

    I found this link to color psychology that I thought you might find interesting: http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/color-psycholog-33700

    My husband and I are trying to figure out what color to paint the basement and this has come in handy.

  6. I know this color is not on the swatch that you have but….. the color of the door in your kitchen is beautiful and would make a great color for your room. Then you could do BOLD accent colors. It would be happy room any time of the day.

  7. What a fab idea! Cant wait to see what you come up with! What is the color you used on the door in the kitchen? I just found an old bench that would be perfect in that color!

  8. Thanks Jen, we are ready for some fresh paint colors in several rooms in our house!

  9. Allison C says:

    We just bought our first house so this will be super helpful! Thanks!

  10. I can’t wait to see what color you choose for your office Jen!

  11. Wow! I am so glad to see this post! That is the EXACT fabric I picked for my craft room. I just finished a fabric cork board with it a little over a week ago! I can’t wait my walls since I’m in a rental so all the color will be on my furniture and wall art! I originally found that fabric when I made a tote bag and have loved it ever since!

    • Oh wow Ashley!! I bet your cork board is so pretty!! Do you have a picture of it? I’d love to see!!


  12. The red heart on your door looks gorgeous with the turquoise. What about something in that color famly? Thanks for sharing the ideas! That site looks fun!

  13. I’m gonna use this for my bedroom. :)

  14. Michele N says:

    I’ll have to remember that site, it looks like a great idea. I love the fabric and actually have a similar fabric but I don’t think mine has any red/orange in it. Did you see what it would come up with if you chose an area where the fabric had more colors in it? I might have to go play when I can find time.

  15. I love those green baskets ontop of your shelves in your craft room. Where did you get those (if you don’t mind sharing)?

    • Hi Kristin!!

      I got the baskets from Target a few months ago. They might still have them :)


      • Awesome!!! I will have to check them out. Target is one of my favorite places ; ) I think they would work well in my daughter’s playroom to hold lots of toys. Thanks bunches.

  16. Who needs a designer anymore?!?!
