Looking for painting tips asap!
I have been in the process of searching for the perfect neutral tan for quite some time.
The room I am painting was originally a medium to dark tan (Valspar Tawny to be exact) I am wanting to go a few shades lighter to open up the room.
Long story short, I painted 5 out of 7 walls in my room with a color I thought was the perfect match, a (What I thought at the time) was a beautiful light tan. It turned out to be a light pink instead. Just my luck! I stopped painting after I realized the color was nauseating.
Several weeks later and I find a color I love, Laura Ashley's Taupe 3, same tint and undertones as the original color on my walls but a few shades lighter, just what I was looking for. I bought a sample and tested it out on my walls. When I paint over the darker beige original wall that I didn't paint- the sample color looks great! Just like it looks on the swatch. However, when I paint the sample color over the light pink walls I painted, the sample paint looks grey and green and yucky. I painted a white piece of cardboard to hold up to the wall to see if it was the lighting causing this effect but the piece of cardboard held up to the icky wall looks perfect. Why is it doing this? I am so confused.
Any ideas or something that I'm missing?
