Color ideas in an emergency!

I'm a color consultant and I deal in color emergencies everyday.
great combination
  Often the emergency is the painter is hired and will be on site in just a few hours and colors have not been selected. Sometimes the emergency is just that one can not decide or that one just doesn't have a sense of what colors are right or needed to complete the look.

  Other times the emergency is that clients just don't want to pick, they want someone else to do their work.

Many people seeking color advice don't seem to know that good ideas known as color schemes, are not created by magic. There is a  process in developing them, it is a skill that can be learned, taught and practiced, and, like a muscle, gets stronger the more it is used.
