Before browsing through the Clark+Kensington color chart, however, select a favorite color, which can be the main color or accent, from an artwork, a rug or a furniture piece in the room that is to be painted. Think about the colors that you find attractive, and use them as a reference point.

It is also helpful in the color selection process to consider the overall mood of the room, wherein neutrals and cool colors are soothing while dark and stronger colors are dramatic and stimulating. When choosing more than one color in the chart, start with the boldest color, and pick out the other colors based on your first color choice.
