A new line of Disney Color from Behr paint sold exclusively through the Home Depot includes 160 hues. But anyone interested in duplicating the lavender-laced bedroom from the line’s Princess Collection need remember only eight: Bibbidi Bobbidi Blue, Fairest of Them All, Clock Strikes 12, Moonlight Waltz, Tinker Bell, A Wave of the Wand, Happily Ever After and Dreams Come True. Oh, and a smidgen of Ultra Pure White 7050. Got all that?

Mercifully, the Home Depot’s new Color Solutions Center, where the Disney paint samples are displayed, includes how-to cards with explicit instructions (ceiling: Bibbidi Bobbidi Blue; top wall: Fairest of Them All; bottom wall: Clock Strikes 12).

“We’ve found that parents will be a little more daring with a space that they know they’ll change as their kids grow up,” says Jason Feldman, Home Depot’s director of style, innovation and design. “They’re also more willing to experiment with things that are fun.”

There are four ready-made motifs to consider: a nursery (Pooh Collection), a bathroom (Mickey Collection) and two children’s rooms (Princess and Pooh).

Disney paints cost the same as other Behr paints (from $17.97 to $21.97 per gallon; $8.49 to $11.40 per quart) and come in the same finishes (flat, eggshell, satin and semi-gloss).
