Choosing your new paint colors is one of the fun parts of moving to a new home in Washington DC. Let this DC relocation specialist help! You want to get the painter in right after closing so you can move in asap – but you probably have limited access to your new home now that the home inspection has been completed. Most contracts to purchase only allow you in twice – once for the home inspection and once for the pre-settlement walk-through. Here are some websites which can assist (at least a little) in choosing your new paint colors before you go to closing.

By taking the quiz, users can discover the colors that speak to their personality and learn about other elements such as pattern, texture, furniture shape, and more. The quiz consists of about 10-12 different questions designed to help users understand the types of colors that best reflect their character. Based on these answers, the quiz then reveals a personalized color palette that reflects the user’s taste and preference.
When I took the quiz, it told me that my wandering spirit can’t be contained, but it can be reflected in my personal space. I’m unique, daring and always excited by new possibilities. I won’t apologize for your individuality.  Then it gave me my color ID!  The quiz was brief and visual – no real thinking involved! Definitely fun.
