Cool grey vs warm grey vs losing my mind

4 years ago

Hi all! Would love to hire someone for advice but alas not in the budget. I'm trying to pick a paint color for a pretty large open area. It does get a lot of light but only in the early morning and then it's mostly ambient, but not at all dark. So I thought I'd like the color Eider white by Sherman Williams. Bought 2 gallons without buying a sample... :) I'm a bit impulsive... It is reading sort of purplish to me? I know it does have cool undertones. My office is off the back of the dining area and I did use a darker cool grey if that matters. I also included a piece of engineered hardwood that I thought was pretty - it does have some bluish streaks in it. But I am confused about how to incorporate other colors into a cool grey tone. Any advice on how to decide which paint color to choose? Will Eider White work? Thanks for any thoughts! Don't mind the mess - everything is in transition!
