Before starting any design project, interior designer Marilynn Taylor suggests picking up fan decks from your local paint or hardware store. Fan decks, sometimes called color decks, are a book of color, fabric, or stain options, commonly delivered in a fan deck binding. You’ll typically see fan decks with color or spot samples for consumers from the leading paint brands.
Additionally , your local paint store expert should be able to walk you through a brand-specific outdoor patio. Typically colour and fan decks are sourced by interior designers and contractors, but homeowners and aspiring designers can also get their hands on samples from most major brands. You can contact consumer brands directly and ask for a color deck or sample book to be shipped to you. Some companies have online forms where they provide complimentary swatches or a section on their website where you can purchase swatches, color decks, and sample books.
