I love the idea about Color Rules and your list. But I have a suggestion for number 10. I think it is better to paint a large piece of oak tag (2 coats) and hold it up on the wall. You can also move the piece of oak tag around the room and see it in different areas and light. Also, painting lots of small color samples on one wall can get confusing. The colors will play off each other and not show true.

Great idea! We use paint stir sticks for color samples at the shop.
