How to paint this paint more brown and less peach

lauren23August 9, 2010

Is there a way, via our lighting, to make this paint color appear more of a deeper brown and less peach??? What kind of bulbs, etc.? THANKS!

Hmm. This isn't the answer you asked for, exactly. But I think it's Lowe's where I've seen a section by the paint counter where they have three different kinds of lighting so you can see what paint samples look like under different conditions. I'd get a sample of that stuff and go there.

I'm tempted to say that the less golden the light the less peachy it looks - because we have an annoyingly peachy tan that looks moreso to me when the sun is filtering in. If anything, if you were using one of those true-tone blueish bulbs that they sell in the usual bulb aisles, I would think that would be better than a pink or white one. If all else fails, although it's not energy efficient, I love halogen. It tends (to me, anyway) to eliminate those "casts" of colors one does not want.
