Swatch Right™ is a 12″ circle-shaped paint color sample decal.
Hold the tab, paint-peel-and-stick to preview wall color.
Three super-helpful-to-you things about Swatch Right™ paint color sample decal:
- THE COLOR! Swatch Right Grey™ is a neutral color boost that works for you to achieve color opacity faster. Especially helpful with deep or vibrant colors that require multiple coats.
- THE TAB! You have something to hold on to when applying paint and also some place to write the paint color sample name, number.
- REMOVABLE, repositionable, and malleable.
Why Swatch Right™ works better than a board:
YOUR OBJECTIVE IS TO PREVIEW AND EVALUATE COLOR. NOT WALLBOARD.
Swatch Right™ mimics the behavior of paint film.
“It’s completely flexible and conforms to shapes and contours – walls, ceilings, trim, corners. . . just about anywhere!” ~ Lori Sawaya, Inventor
Here’s why that’s important. Pictured below are hand-troweled walls, and this foyer area is an 11 foot diameter round room. Walls are curved. A square, rigid sample board is of no use because it doesn’t mimic the room’s architecture or the wall’s texture.
Swatch Right™ to the rescue. . .
Q. Why is it a CIRCLE?
A. Because you have eyeballs, not eyesquares!
Swatch Right™ paint-peel-and-stick decals engineers prospective paint colors into focus.
Do your foveas have corners? Nope. The fovea is the center of color vision in the eyeball – it’s where all the magic happens and the sensation of color vision spreads from there.
Our eye’s sharpest and most vividly colored vision develops when light is focused on the small dimple on the retina called the fovea centralis or macula. This area is exclusively, and most importantly more densely, cones than elsewhere on the retina. The eyeball is continuously moving and adjusting to get light to fall on the retinal region and its function is to constantly work to provide maximum visual conditions to support the eye-brain system for vision.
Swatch Right™ is ergonomically more accommodating to our physical vision system than typical square-shaped color sample boards. It’s like shoes. You *can* wear four inch heels. They will get you around and where you need to go. But tennis shoes are a lot more comfortable and less physically taxing on your bipedal system. You know you can walk more efficiently, farther and longer in a pair of tennis shoes than you can a pair of heels. Likewise, there are so many things going on taxing our visual system when we are working to choose paint colors that sometimes even the smallest things can make a difference.
There is an ease and friendliness about a circle and it literally takes the edges off the physio-psychologically taxing visual gymnastics you experience when choosing wall colors. As one color designer said when she replaced square sample boards with circles, “Squares have fairly rigid boundaries and seem to contain the colour inside their shape. Circles on the other hand do not have such rigid boundaries and do not constrain the colour within them. They seem to allow the colour to radiate from the circle and make it much easier to imagine a larger space painted in the colour of the swatch.”
