How to Choose Foolproof Wall Paint Colors for Your Home
Finding the perfect palette for every room in your house is simple with a few easy, no-nonsense tricks. Color and paint guru Eve Ashcraft, author of the just-released The Right Color, shares her advice on how to do it right

It might be a work of art, a souvenir, or a piece of fabric: “Every single thing we put our hands on is a color, and we make decisions based on color whether we’re in tune with that or not,” Ashcraft says.
