Need advice on paint color, but need to figure out sun exposure first!

3 years ago

I’m painting my living room in my condo for the first time, and picking a color is more complicated than I ever imagined! I thought I would start with sun exposure, and this is embarrassing, but I can’t seem to figure out how to use the darn compass on my iphone! Everything I read on this subject talks about rooms with northern exposure vs. south-facing windows, but I get sun in the morning, and then no direct light for the rest of the day. So....eastern light? Is that a thing? Would the rules for northern exposure (warmer colors look best, avoid whites and grays...) apply to this room?

Thanks for any help on this subject. I’m a total newbie on paint projects!
