Home interior painting help

So, here we have it, the weather starts cooling down, and I get the itch to paint the inside of my home. I don't like neutral colors, I like bright, funky, and fun colors...my walls have NEVER been painted for the most part because I am afraid to do it. what if it looks terrible the way I WANT it? Will I have the energy to redo it within a week? help me. Anyone have ideas for me? My favorite colors, fuschia, red, orange, turquoise, aqua, black and white, lime green, pink...I like yellow too. You know, like a gypsy wagon of sorts only parked here in the boring suburbs of fort worth, Texas. I can paint anything on a small scale, just the way I want it...but when you give me 20foot ceilings and lofty living rooms...I am frozen. SIGH...and every year, I say I will have my home painted by Christmas, so it will be pretty. And every year for 7 now in THIS house...my walls are still just drab, and now dirty...from 3 boys and a great dane that is attempting to paint the walls every time he shakes his head!
I must say it is hard for me to post stuff like this. It is too personal. My brother has a way of throwing things up on my fb that are funny and sort of poking fun, but this issue with my home is driving me mad. It feels like as "the woman" of the house and home maker, and an artist to boot...it feels like a failure to have an undecorated, unbeautiful home. SIGH...any suggestions out there? I have one room that is just about totally empty, my soon to be studio. why not start there? Its either there or the foyer as it is almost empty too. If there is someone out there in facebook land that is really good with this stuff, and patient with an indecisive, loves everything sort of personality...I would sooooo love you for some coaching. I would even consider a trade or bartering my services for yours.
In all sincerity...
HELP ME!!
