    Sherwin-Williams has a nice set of tools that are part of what they call the ColorSnap Visualizer. Once on the Sherwin Williams website using their ColorSnap tools, you will be able to test different colors in different rooms of the house. One really nice feature of this tool is if you pick a color it will pick a color theme with complementary colors.  You can explore their colors and they even have a section called get inspired.

    Another nice feature of the Sherwin-Williams ColorSnap Visualizer is there is a choice to view their expert color pick themes when choosing interior paint colors.  The picture below shows examples of the Sherwin-Williams Expert Color Picks.

    3. Choosing Interior Paint Colors With Behr Color Viewer

    When using the Behr Color Discovery tool for picking interior paint colors, you first pick your room from a list of rooms. Next, you indicate what type of feel you want the room to have such as warm & friendly, relaxed & calming, trendy & stylish, bold & dramatic, or versatile. In the below picture I picked the living room with relaxed and calming colors. You then get the choices as seen below to pick up to three of the listed colors.
