too many to choose

Is it just me, or is picking interior paint one of the most difficult tasks in home improvement? Why are there a gazillion mocha-y, grey colors? I wish you could go to a paint store and the employee would somehow be able to get into your mind and see the same color you are envisioning and create a perfect can of paint. Just for you. Instead you have to browse the countless options in horrible lighting, just to bring it home and discover the swatch looks nothing like what just came out of the can. Uggh!!


These aren't even all of the bad choices I have made. There are more on another wall....

That is why every room in my house has been painted at least twice, and my back wall of my living room has 10 , yes TEN, coats of paint on it. Ugh. Ralph Lauren has some really great colors, that is what is on all my walls now because I just went into other people's houses, said "I like that color..." and went directly to Home Depot to purchase. :)

I understand your dilemma. And I, like m&c have already painted my living room 3 times in 2 years. And, 2 of those colors came within a matter of 2 weeks. So, don't get discouraged. Keep experimenting, and if you don't like the color you choose, at least it's a fairly cheap redo.
