Are our cabinets too white? What do we do?

26 days ago

We are currently having our kitchen cabinets painted by a design company. We are 2 coats of primer and 2 coats of paint in at this point. The cabinet color is color matched Chantilly Lace by Benjamin Moore. We discovered over the weekend that they color matched the color through Milesi. Our original contract (that we did not sign bc something wasnt correct) stated they used BM Advanced but the subsequent contract we signed stated they used Milesi. We still have atleast one more coat of paint coming Monday (and they are working to fix drip marks and some other not great problems we pointed out) but all that aside, the color match doesn’t seem exactly right. Seems even less warm that BM Chantilly Lace and also does not match the Milesi sample card yet.
What do we need to do? 1. Be patient bc it clearly needs another coat/maybe the original primer is still showing through? 2. Fuss about the color match and see if we can switch to the BM color originally intended because this will fix our problem. 3. Paint the cabinets a totally different color bc this white shade was a bad idea. 4. Paint our walls and molding a different color to tye it in. 5. stopping worrying about it bc it looks great and im just shocked by the white. Other thoughts? Thanks in advance for your help and kindness.
