All info. should be provided when pics are posted on Houzz, IMO.

Can anyone take a guess as to what this blue might be? I'm looking for a yellow-based, warm blue, just like this one.

Grab these four chips and see if any one of them is what you're looking for.

A yellowish-blue, bluish-yellow, reddish-green, greenish-red are opponent and not human vision perceptible.

What's perceived as warmer blues will have overtones leaning toward red-blue. Perceived as cooler blues will lean toward blue-green. See graphic below.

Mozart Blue #1665
Sea Reflections #1664
Blue Nose #1678
