Please Free Me From this Yellow Nightmare

organic_hosannaMay 18, 2012

Does anyone have any idea of a similar soft yellow paint color for the walls in the dining room in "Something's Gotta Give"? I was told it was mixed and it's all lighting, but there MUST be a color like it out here in the real world! I have tried more than a dozen and can't seem to figure it out!

Here's a link to it...

Thank you so much for any help!

Take a look at a paint chip from the Home Depot, brand Behr, color "Cornerstone". See if it *matches* what you're perceiving on your monitor. Another option is Jersey Cream from Sherwin Williams.

Finding a buttercream yellow like that is actually kinda easy - many brand's palettes have something similar just a process of elimination to find it.

I would second the Sherwin Williams Jersey Cream. I think it's very close to what you're seeing in your link....

I will add that I have vaulted ceilings and a second story landing that shows from below that will be all one color...just trying not to be too yellow, but soft, if you get my drift!

We painted our front room in Valspar Homestead Resort Sunwash and it looks very close to your inspiration picture.

Thank you to all the posts! I did try the Jersey Cream, and while I love it I think it may turn a little too bright yellow for me. So I am now toning it down a bit...trying Vanillin and Napery by Sherwin Williams. Will see how that does!
