Have you ever thought to yourself, "I wish I had a color swatch of that wall color in Billy's bedroom so I know if this bedding would match"? or at least something similar? (I don't have a son named Billy either but you get the idea!)
The other evening I ran to Homegoods to investigate if there were any new shipments on pillows since my previous visit. I found a red pillow I liked but I spent a good ten minutes pondering if the red was (in fact) the same red on my dining room accent wall. Now, if I had a little 1x2 inch paint swatch in my wallet, I would've saved myself some time and some brain cells too :)
I decided to pay a visit to Restoration Hardware and Benjamin Moore for the express purpose of picking up swatches of my wall colors. Putting them all together in a clip made me realize I should try to harmonize my walls better next time around :) Anyway, this little grouping is now in my wallet so I never have to wonder again if that truly is the perfect shade of green.
