Farrow & Ball color for bedroom -pls help me fix my mistake

11 years ago

I made a big mistake with the color for DD (8yrs) bedroom. Based on the advice of a color consultant, I painted with BM Amber Waves and it is horrible. Our home is made of adobe bricks and has exposed dark wood posts and beams. Please please help me find a FB color that I can use. We want the feel of room to be calm, light and airy

The bedroom is north facing and there is a window on the west wall and a window on the north wall. Both of these walls are brick and the other 2 walls are regular sheetrock. the windows are shaded by trees. The ceiling is 9ft tall sloping to 8ft as it follows the roof line.

I have used FB paint in estate and modern emulsion in some parts of the house and BM select Matte in others. We especially like the look of FB for the texture and feel it gives to the brick walls. See living room pic below in Pointing.

BM Amber waves - hate this color in the bedroom

Farrow &Ball Pointing in Estate Emulsion - we love the living room.
