Need paint color to help reduce pink undertone in new carpet

10 years ago

Remodeled our basement and was in love with the paint color we had put on the walls (BM Edgecomb Gray) until the new carpet was installed. I did not see any pink/peach undertone in the carpet until after it was installed. The carpet sample looked like a neutral tan, but not in our basement. Some of the other factors that may be in play are our new LED canned lights, oak windows with 2" oak blinds, and our white trim (BM Dove White).

My guess is replacing the blinds (can't afford to replace the actual windows right now) may help cut out some of the pink, but I think the paint color may be the primary solution to reducing the pink/peach tone of the carpet. We had BM Monroe Bisque on the walls before, but too gold for what we want now. Wondering if SW Kilim Beige may be a solution.
