 o
quick question on ceiling paint

Hi,

My question is (eventually) about ceiling paint.

Just picking the final paint now. We selected a certain "card" from Sherwin Williams, then I bought samples of every other one. To approximate the in-betweens, I blended half and half. Here is the result. The "pure colors" are on top, the blends below. (L to R, SW 6673 Banana Cream, SW 6675 Afternoon, SW 6677 Goldenrod.)

Photobucket

I am going with the one on the lower right, which I hope is the same as SW 6676 Butterfield.

My question is for the ceiling. Should I get the lightest hue from this same card for the ceiling? It is one notch lighter than the one on the top left.

Another option is to get a light tone that will match the backsplash. I chose another SW card (in a sagey olive/green/gray) that goes with the yellow, and am matching the tile to that card. Should I consider the lightest tone on that card (SW 6182 Ethereal White)?

Thanks!

When I selected my ceiling color, which is a white, I made sure the colorants where the same as my wall color.

Thanks, enduring.

If anyone else reads this, you can go ahead and let the thread drop to oblivion. I just got back from the neighborhood paint store. I made a snap decision to follow enduring's advice (I think!) and go with the SW Morning Sun (light, light yellow).
