choosing paint colors

Better Homes & Gardens
My eighteenth move {yes I said eighteenth} is complete! Still have a lot to do, but number one on our list is painting over some not so attractive walls...think mustards, golds, reds and dark browns. Found this color palette above and love each and every one! Copper Patina 619 by Benjamin Moore {large lid} is going to replace a garish red in our front room, which is going to be a beach-inspired living area. Needed to bring a bit of our beach past to the mountains. 

I get overwhelmed by certain things--warehouse-style stores, bargain shopping bins, and paint swatches--so the easiest way for me to choose a paint color, is to see it on a wall or in a photo. Hand me a stack of color swatches and I will immediately lose interest. Photos to come!
