Playing With Colors

I was playing with Behr's ColorSmart online paint system to pick colors for our living and dining area, and the sunroom. I came up with some cool combinations, but we need to actually go and look at these colors on paint swatches as opposed to on the screen as they can be very deceiving (I got totally different hues on my home computer and at work)...So Friday afternoon we'll stand in front of a HomeDepot paint center and argue out the exact color of paint and trim, and then finally, the Great Painting Project takes off like a very, very slow, lumbering but unstoppable black bear. We are planning on doing this is small one wall/given time increments as our schedules are rather crazy.
Anyone wants to participate in a painting party, let me know...:-)

Since you're doing the painting yourselves, unless you feel like paint fume headaches, I recommend the low-VOC stuff (like Clarity from Dutch Boy). It's what we used to paint our new place back in May. No evil stink, no headaches.

Thank you! Actually one of the reasons I chose Behr was b/c when we helped one of our friends paint their living room/hallway, we were done in a day, it dried by the evening and there was no fumes whatsoever.
