I need to paint my home to sell and completely lack the skill necessary to tell good colors from bad. (Really, my bedroom is a navy blue pit of despair.) [more inside]

I just bought a house across the street from a Home Depot, all of the walls are white, and I'm indecisive. Please help me use up my many paint samples. [more inside]

We are going to be repainting our master closet pretty soon and are considering new colors to use. Is there such a thing as an ideal wall/ceiling color for a closet--something that won't change the appearance of the colors of the clothing or cast weird glows in the room? I seem to recall that a lighter shade of gray is good for this purpose, but I'm not finding any decent writing to support that notion. The closet is 5 ft. by 11 ft. with a 9 ft. ceiling, lit by two CFLs. The adjacent rooms are in a light yellowy color (shown on the wall in the picture on this random blog post) with white trim. I guess there's always white? Any advice or links would be appreciated!

Apartment therapy: I'd rather not spend much time when I move out to mask my paint job in order to return its color to an institutional off-white ick. Which colors are the easiest to mask with minimal priming / effort? And how much will it cost? [more inside]

Why are radiators (the things connected to your hot water system that heat a room) usually painted white, when white is the worst colour for heat radiation?
