Palettes by GENERAL Color
To visualize your color combination (palette) on a sample house, click on this link:
... and wait for the “interior” view/scene to come-up, then to get to the right scene, go to the left by clicking the “<” (on the left) 3 times, to the 2 story house with the porch on the left and garage on the right. Click, “Paint this Scene”.
Clear the colors that come-up at the bottom by clicking the Garbage can in each, then click the “+” sign. When the color wall comes-up, click “search” in the upper left-hand corner, then enter your “Base” color code and click “+” in the color box that pops-up, then enter your “Trim” color code and click “+”, then enter your “Accent” color code and again click “+”.
Then click “cancel” in the upper right corner, then “Close”. Your selected colors will now be at the bottom of the house scene. Click your “Base” color to the left at the bottom, then any large area of the wall of the house, click your “Trim” color at the bottom then any trim area such as the column to the far left, click your “Accent” color and then the front door of the house. There, you have a representation of your selected palette.
To print your sample color palette scene, click “Image” on the middle right. In the pop-up window select what you want to do with the scene (it is in a JPEG format so you can save it or open it in your photo program of choice) and then, using the “Print” option of that program, print it out.
- In the scene, the arched fake vent on the wall above the garage door is colored by the program the “Trim” color but in the Dupree Lakes community that type of applique or “detail” is to be the “Accent” color like the shutters and front door. Any other small items such as the garage lights, fake garage door hinges and handles and even house numbers can also be the “Accent” color.
- Also note that the garage door in the scene does not change from “white” whereas in the Dupree Lakes community the garage door MUST be either the “Base” color or the “Trim” of your selected palette. IT CANNOT BE THE “ACCIDENT” COLOR! Most Accent colors are much to dark for that large a space.
- AND, due to screen limitations, colors seen here may not accurately reflect actual painted colors as they will appear on your house. To confirm your color choices, visit your neighborhood Sherwin-Williams store and refer to their in-store color swatches (cards) or Color to Go® color samples. (See “Painting tips”)
