Another paint color thread - Help!

cind11July 27, 2014

My 20 year old daughter is home from college this summer and wants to change her pink walls to chocolate brown. We picked Sherwin Williams 6088 - Nuthatch. I told the guy at the paint store we did NOT want a paint that looked gold. Well guess what? One coat of paint is on her walls and especially in the lighter areas of her room, the paint has a decidedly gold cast to it. My husband is not happy after his work and paying for paint we don't like. I told him not to put the second coat on until we figure this out. The carpet is a neutral beige. (At least I think it is) The room gets a lot of light beginning mid afternoon and then by late afternoon is flooded with light. Any suggestions for a coffee colored or chocolate brown paint with no funky (especially yellow or gold) undertones?? Thanks!!

Yes, get a black-based chocolate brown. BM Midsummer Night is gorgeous. Or BM Dragon's Breath.

Well, Nuthatch is definitely more coffee colored than chocolate. I have what I consider a dark chocolate brown in my bedroom. Have had it in my last three masters. Love love it. BM Middlebury Brown. Here is a pic. Might be too dark for you but figured I would throw it out there.

I have BM Caravelle in my kitchen with cream cabinets and a dark floor. I really like it.

I have Behr Wild Horse in my dining room. Quite a bit darker than Nuthatch and not gold at all.
