A good, vintage-y Ben Moore cabinet yellow?
So, I guess this is the month of completely revisiting decisions I made in July. This was discontinued, that won't work, the other thing sold out because Jennifer Garner said she liked it.
Which brings me to the yellow for my cabinets.
I've been planning on using Philadelphia Cream, a historic color from Benjy Moore. I painted it on a mockup of a cab face, and then moved on to daub it on some of my existing doomed cabinetry. It's OK in some lights. However, at various times of the day it turns on me. It goes green, a sort of dirty olive color that somehow manages to be a little chartreuse at the same time. It still might be OK, it's hard to judge with the wretched lighting currently in the kitchen. But I better find an alternative fast.
What won't work is the Barley in 2LittleFishies kitchen. It's too intense. Even the next lighter color, Cornsilk, is too hubba-hubba in my kitchen.I like the beigeness of the Philadelphia Cream, just not the green tones.
I have also requested some Farrow and Ball colors. They took my credit card money promptly but will now get around to actually giving me the samples in about a week. (This is par for the course in the home reno industry; those of you who dislike the attitudes of tile salespeople simply don't understand that you're supposed to say good morning and then patiently wait 7-10 days for a reply.) The small F&B free color card is, I am convinced, a practical joke by the English factory workers, since it bears no relationship whatsoever to the actual paints. So I'm waiting for the little pots to arrive.
In the meanwhile, can anybody suggest a yellow that might work? Muted and a bit beige without being too green? It's got to be Ben Moore because if someone tells me to buy one more fan deck I'm coming after them with a paint pan.
