Another paint color thread - Help!

Posted by cind11 (My Page) on

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.
