How does Loe-E Glass on new window products affect the wall color in new homes?
March 26, 2012 in Design Dilemma
I have consulted professionally on wall paint choices, but we have moved from the Midwest to Phoenix, AZ area and are building a new home with Low-E windows. I have noticed that model homes with this feature show cool beige, blues and silvers not earth tones. Indeed when I took paint samples to our new build, the B Moore "jute" chip ( lightest beige with a khakii tinge)went ashy and dull, while the pale blue greys, aquas and silvers looked great. The butter-creams and manilla tones I like also went dead. Anyone have any experience with this? Thanks!
