Should I bother matching SW color to BM Aura?
13 sample cans later I finally decided on the paint color, Sherwin Williams' Taupe Tone @ 40%. I originally planned to go with BM Aura as I am looking for a durable, super matte finish to hide the orange peel texture on my walls. However, I ended up with a SW color as their store is only five minutes from my house compared to the hour long drive it would take me to get BM.
So in addition to being a pain to get, I'm worried that BM won't be able to match the SW color properly. Do you think BM can match the SW color? Would you just stick with the SW color in the Duration formula, or is BM Aura really that much better?
If it matters I will be DIYing this paint job and it's going to be a mother (2 story foyer w/open staircase and two story living room). The house is six years old and the walls currently have a flat SW off white, a few walls have a dark brown Behr color.
Thanks in advance for your advice!
