Where does grey stand on this color chart?
Someone posted this link a few weeks ago.
It makes a lot of sense to me.
I have a problem however that the chart does not answer.
I have two-tone cabinets, light soft yellow and grey. The grey cabs are laminate, so I cannot change the color. In any "warmer" light they look either as "pure" medium grey or even slightly brownish, which is good. However, in bright daylight and white fluorescent light, they look slightly blueish and somewhat clash with the yellow cabinets.
I am replacing fluorescents with warm LEDs but cannot do much about the daylight. :-(
Originally, I wanted to paint the room light grey but most greys look too blue, too green, too purple, or too dark. I tried some light greige ones, e.g., MB light pewter, but they looked almost creamy (the pewter) or something else.
And, frankly speaking, I do not want grey walls in the kitchen. I have plenty of them in the rest of the house and want a sunny and bright kitchen. IDK why but I want to paint the room pale soft yellow.
So, here are my questions.
Would that a warm color would cast some "warmth" on the grey cabs so they'd look more grey and less blue?
Or would yellow make the grey cabs look even "blue-er"?
According to the chart, yellow is not too far from orange which is the complementary color to blue and is supposed to make blue look brighter. But the chart has no greys and I don't know enough about colors to guess the effect.
What do you think?
Sorry, no pix and they wouldn't help anyway b/c the computer wouldn't translate such subtle nuances.
