i would like to paint my living rooms floor in an off white, but i hate yellowish tones. I chose Benjamin Moores Atrium white and White dove, but cant decide! Please help. I am a fan of light beige as a shade. Which one do you suggest? Also, i wouldnt like it to be bright white as such , i like it warmer. Which one of the two is the darkest? my celings are pure white

I have a hard time with the white color ranges. They all seem to be the same and yet so different. I also find it hard to match existing white paint in my home. Have you ever taken a paint swatch home, liked it so you paint the room, and then it is a totally different color than the swatch. I have found a web site that really helped me in choosing the right color. Try this site out and see if it helps you.
