Need BM warm gray ASAP, painting tomorrow!

mkiv808November 10, 2011

My painters did my living room today and I'm not a fan of the color. Bad choice on my part. It was BM Smoke Embers. Too cool/bluish, especially against some neighboring linen white walls. My space opens into the kitchen, which has dark cherry cabinets. Too blue of a contrast.

I need a warmer grey that isn't darker or lighter. It's just dark enough, it's just too cool.

I'm thinking Himalayan Trek, La Paloma Gray and Cumulus Cloud? Does Cumulus have some green in it, or is it just me?

Definitely want just that very slight hint of beige and some warmness so it blends with the dark cherry and linen white neighboring walls.

Also considering Revere Pewter.

I'm trying Himilayan Trek but very slightly lighter. Fingers crossed!

A "greige" you might want to look at is Early Morning Mist.
