Color Tips: "1 There are many paint stores out there and paint chips are free. If you can't find your ideal color in the first store you try, go to another one and keep looking until you find it. It exists! 2 If you like a color better when it's wet than when it's dry, take the paint bucket to a paint store with a lot of diversity, paint it on a piece of paper, and try to match the color to the chips while it's wet. 3 Save large cardboard boxes (or find them in recycling boxes behind stores) cut them up, and use them for painting large color samples that you can hold them up to a wall in various light to see how the color will look."
Color Resources: Go to the mall and notice what dishware, bedding, and clothing speaks to you and follow your heart. If a color speaks to you, don't listen to whether "experts" say it shouldn't go into your bedroom or anywhere else in the house. Find a shade that works and makes you feel happy when you look at it.
