2 Good color tips:

1 - When painting a wall with a warm color such as red or orange make sure to use a dark primer (grayish) first. It will help avoid a translucid look.

2- Flat paint, when using warm colors, covers the area better and you might not need as many layers as you would with a glossy paint.
