AMOR: Pretty Painted Walls

There is so much to do to get ready for the new store (eek!).  We leave next week on our buying trip leaving us little time to make some big decisions.  Picking colors is one of them.  One thing we absolutely love at Casa Artelexia is color.  Lots and lots of color.  We've painted every single room and ceiling a different color.  The outside of the store is even painted a bright orange (and I mean BRIGHT) with a royal blue trim (think Frida Kahlo's house).  It took us forever to choose the colors our first time around - we practically lived in the paint department at Home Depot and changed our minds about a trillion times.  It is so hard to decide on a color palette when there are so many possibilities.  With the new space we have a TON of wall space and we will be doing the painting ourselves.  Yup, you heard right.  I'm counting on YouTube to teach me how to faux paint.  Crazy?  Absolutely.  Once we settle on the colors then everything else is a piece of cake.   Have you ever faux-painted?  Any tips?  Which colors do you like best?  Here are a few colors that caught my eye.  Enjoy!
