Just had painted bm "natural wicker" and its too yellow-

amylaurenOctober 8, 2012

Hi-the painter just put up "natural wicker" and it looks so much more yellow thought it would by the sample and I really hate it. We did "white" trim. The whole room looks wrong. I usually use white dove or super white and thought dove would be too dull-not enough contrast-and super white would be too bright. I am seeing a lot of blue in the plain bm "white."

I am so frustrated right now-it look tons of samples and we had to hire a painter b/c it is a large 2 story entrance so it was expensive.

Has anyone used bm "muslin" in a large space? I need to warm up this space-=

I'm surprised the natural wicker is reading so yellow. Most of the off white colors aren't going to warm up a space though...the muslim looks very similar to what you have....have you thought about something that adds a little more color to the room?

Thanks for your reply! I tested the shaker beige and it was too dark. My floors are a darker brown with a little cherry in them.

What you see on the color chip is not what you get in the mix. Always test first and test with surroundings.

I just repainted an office suite in SW Blonde. The accent wall is Red Theater. Now the Blonde wall is no where close to Blonde on the chip.
