2 Good color tips: 1. Colors named after fruits and vegetables give you something else to talk about when people come over. They look and say "Oh, I like your green." To which we respond, "It's Dill Pickle." Deeeeelicious. 2. Oh, just paint it on. What's the worst that can happen? You paint over it? I mean, really. 2 good color resources: 1. Benjamin Moore's Mini Paint Samples. The easiest way to decide if a color will work in your room is to paint it, and if they're willing to make a sample of the color you like, it'll probably be ok. And they're only 3 bucks. A bargain! 2. Other people's badly painted apartments. You may not know what colors you do want, but it's very easy to discover what colors you don't.
