While extreme, this story represents the all too familiar look of fear shared by home-owners when it's time to paint the walls of a room in their home. Baffled by where to start, nervous about picking something that everyone will hate and somehow convinced that the safety of the free world rides on this one single decision; it's no wonder that people are paralyzed by paint.
As with most fears, rational or irrational, prevailing over them is a process. For those who would like to feel more confident about their paint color decisions I'd like to introduce you to The Color Wheel.
The basics are like this; 12 colors - the primary colors (red, yellow and blue), the secondary colors (colors you get by mixing the primary colors such as orange, purple and green) and the tertiary colors (the results of mixing primary and secondary colors (red-purple, blue-purple, blue-green, yellow-green, yellow-orange, red-orange).
With thousands of paint colors on the market you might still be intimidated when trying to visualize those colors available to you while using a basic color wheel. If that's the case run to your paint supply store and ask if they have their own wheel. Many paint manufacturers create color wheels utilizing their own colors. This can put you ahead of the game, particularly if you're feeling comfortable with the basic concept.
The more comfortable you become playing with the color wheel (yes, play with it, you're not doing brain-surgery) the more fun you will have picking perfect paint colors for every room of your home.
