The idea here is to just leave them and only look at them when your going into that room. If you are brushing your teeth, take some time to look at the swatches again and if any start to look or feel not quite right – get rid. Don’t second guess, eliminate the swatch and finish brushing your teeth.
Then, after a good nights sleep , have another look (hopefully when brushing your teeth again) 😉
This is a great exercise to do, especially when dealing with colours. As you may or may not know, light effects your paint colour. It doesn’t matter if it is gloss, matt, shiny or double matt. Light will either saturate, filter or deepen the hue. This can leaves your paint colour looking very different at different times of the day. It is then up to you to decide if this is a problem or not. Either way, at least there will be no surprises!
You need to be comfortable with that paint colour at any time of the day. It is a lot harder to change a paint colour once it is on the wall.
