How to Ensure the Perfect Color Match for Your Olive et Oriel Wall Art and Wallpaper

When it comes to decorating your space with Olive et Oriel's extensive range of wall art and wallpaper, ensuring the perfect color match is paramount. The beauty of art lies not only in its design but also in how its colors blend with your room's aesthetics. However, the challenge of digital previews and the reality of physical products can sometimes lead to unexpected differences. Here's how you can bridge that gap and make informed decisions for beautifying your space.

The Challenge of Screen Variability

Digital devices, from smartphones to laptops, have transformed the way we view and purchase art. However, these devices come with a catch - variability in color representation. The brightness, color settings, and even the type of screen can significantly affect how a piece of artwork appears online versus in person.

Why Colors Vary Across Devices

Our professional printing process and meticulous quality control are designed to ensure the highest fidelity in color reproduction. However, the inherent variations in device screens mean that what you see might slightly differ from the printed artwork. This discrepancy is primarily due to the color profiles and settings on individual devices, which can alter the appearance of colors and brightness.

Optimizing for Accuracy

We've taken steps to bridge the gap between digital preview and physical product by aligning our design and printing processes with the color profiles of iPhones and Apple computers equipped with Retina displays. These devices, when used with default color settings, offer a color preview that closely matches our printed products. However, even with this optimization, the backlight on LCD or LED screens can make images appear brighter than they are in reality.

Tips for a More Accurate Preview

To help ensure the artwork you order matches your expectations, consider the following tips:

Adjust Your Screen Brightness: Lower the brightness of your device to a moderate level that mimics natural lighting. This adjustment can provide a more accurate representation of how the artwork will look in your space.

✓ Consider the Device: If possible, view the artwork on an iPhone or an Apple computer with a Retina display, using the default color settings. These devices offer the most accurate color previews based on our product designs.

✓ Reach Out for Assistance: If you're unsure about how the colors will translate in print, or if you're using a device that significantly alters color representation, don't hesitate to contact our Customer Care team. We're here to help you make an informed decision before your purchase.
