Manufacturers' paint chips are fine for distinguishing one color from another, but they're way too small to show how your choice will really look on the wall. For a more accurate indication, cut up six same-color paint chips and tape them together. Then tape the chip to the wall and view it several times, in both light and shadow, over several days.

Torn between colors? Make up a big sample of each and tape them up. Don't post them too near each other, as the color from one will reflect on the other.
