While picking paint colors is one of the most fun parts of decorating or redecorating a room, it can also be one of the most frustrating. I mean, how are you supposed to know which colors will look best together just by looking at those tiny paint samples on the color wheel?
Now Pittsburgh Paints has taken all of the guess work out of putting together paint colors. The Color Sense Game is a really cool online quiz that uses your answers to the quiz to develop a color palette for your home that is perfectly suited to your own personal tastes.
The questions on the quiz are fun and original, asking things like “If a genie granted you two wishes, what would you wish for” and “What is your dream vacation?” From your answers, The Color Sense Game places you into a primary “harmony family” such as “Morning Rose” and a secondary harmony family like “Al Fresco.” These harmony families are intended to present you with color palettes that will inspire the paint colors in your own home.
So far I’ve played The Color Sense Game twice, fitting into different harmony families each time. The first time I was “Pop Art” and “Tapestry and Mosaic.” The Pop Art color palettes are vibrant and energetic:
The second time I played the game my primary harmony family was “Al Fresco” and the secondary harmony family was “Water Beads.” Al Fresco color combinations are inspired by nature, and focus primarily upon shades of green:
As you can see, you may wind up with a different harmony family each time you play The Color Sense Game, depending upon your answers. It’s fun because you can see the wide range of color palettes available – you might wind up liking several that aren’t even in your harmony family! Click here to play The Color Sense Game yourself!
