Sherwin Williams Loch Blue - help!

redvelvetpugJune 6, 2012

I chose Sherwin Williams Loch Blue ( for one of the bedrooms in our house.

The painters are putting it on now, and so far they've only put on 1 coat. But it is NOT how I thought it was going to turn out -- it's a lot darker and has more of an aqua/green undertone than the sample paint cards looked. They have only put on 1 coat, so maybe it won't look like this when it's done, but I wanted to see if anyone here had experience w/ this particular color.

I understand that sometimes the color won't turn out exactly as you imagine it, but this seems significantly different from what I thought. Made me wonder if their color machine was off and put too much of one ink.

Would love any thoughts!

FYI - it turns out Sherwin Williams MESSED UP - they used the wrong base for the paint. Terrible! No wonder it was completely off.
