Painting with 2 colors.

When painting a room with 2 different colors, does the color go on top and white on bottom or the opposite? I have a chair rail that would seperate the colors. Thanks

Painting with 2 colors.

typically the bottom is white and color on top. And if using two similar colors I usually put the darker color on the bottom and lighter color on top however, this is not set in stone.
