Color Tips: "1. Look everywhere for inspiration. Like Baskin & Robin's Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream: that georgeous combination of a pale celedon with a rich brown. Or the shade of a real robin's egg, beautiful. 2. Be fearless with color. It's only paint, very easy to change if you aren't happy with it. Get a ton of chips within the range of color you want and bring them all home. Look at them all together in the room you will be painting. 3. Get technical advice before you start. Consult a professional before you start, so you know you are getting all the tools you need. Also you don't want to waste any time. (i.e. If your going with a really strong color, maybe use a tinted primer; what kind of finish do you want; etc)."
