Im trying to figure out some ideas for a paint that is similar to this yellow. I want a neutral, buttery yellow that will look like this. I'm planning on using BM Aura paint, so a BM paint is probably preferred. Thanks!

Philadelphia Cream may also be an option.

I have BM Windham Cream and I think it's paler than on these pictures. Also, slightly peachier. But then again, it probably depends on your room and lighting.

I'm a big fan of Windham Cream.

That looks just like the Windham Cream in our bedroom.

I would get paint chips that Look Like the Picture you like, regardless of what the actual name of the color is and sample those. It may be any or all of the above suggestions but they may not look like that in your house.

The color of my old living room was completely unrecognizable compared to the swatch when the swatch was on the display in the store and looked even more different in photographs than it did IRL.

BM Westin Flax seems too yellow. I'm going to get samples of Windham Cream and Philadelphia Cream and also ask the people at the paint store if they have any suggestions for matching the color.

I painted my guest room BM pale moon and I love it...it has inspired a friend to paint her bedroom the same color.
