SW Blonde and SW Restrained Gold .... see SW Blonde on a posting that has subject "Difference between SW Blonde and Restrained Gold?".

I found that posting from Google search on Restrained Gold.

Here is SW Blonde with a dark red from BM "Hot Apple Spice". Works really well together. Looks a little darker on the monitor but is really a pretty med. gold.

We used SW Convivial Gold and Sequin in rooms with brick red accents and adjacent to a powder room done in SW Bold Brick. In the realm of golds, they lean more towards the yellow than the brown/tan, but definitely not true yellows.

Here some info that might be useful when choosing decor color.. It from the site www.mediterranean-lifestyles.com

...Your preferred hue will be an ideal point of departure. Pick up a color wheel at any craft store, and use it to find a shade that will compliment your favorite color. Begin by determining to which color family your preferred color belongs, in other words whether it is a primary, secondary, or tertiary color. While the primary are the hues red, blue, and yellow, and the secondary are orange, green, and purple, tertiary colors are the shades turquoise, lime, gold, carnelian, plum, and cobalt. Combine colors that belong to the same color family for a look that is fabulously put together. When working with tertiary colors, select any three colors that sit at equal distances from each other on the color wheel. Soften the look by using varying intensities of your chosen colors. For example, walls can be painted a neutral, but they may also be tinted a pale gold, or some other light version of a color in your scheme.
