2 good color tips: 1. Try the color on different surfaces. My aqua color look completely different on the wood paneling vs. the finished textured walls. 2. Live with a wall of it for at least three days, and maybe do like I did, use it in a stripe or section around the room and not on all the walls. 2 good color resources: 1. I chose my color from an old road beach sign I bought off eBay. 2. I also use colors from my daughter's favorite clothes and had them matched.
