There’s more to it than most people realize. What type of paint should you use (Latex or oil)? What should the finish be (flat, eggshell, low sheen/satin, semi-gloss, or gloss)? Is the off-white you choose going to be a little too pink? Or too green? What about the beige, maybe too yellow? What if your red accent wall turns out to look like it belongs in a circus fun house? What color should the ceiling be? What about the window trim and baseboards? What about the crown molding?
