People ask us about the colors / paint names all the time here. And I think it really needs to be explained and might be very useful to remember.

It is important to understand that knowing the name of the color doesn't help you really. Moreover, usually it is the opposite!!!

First of all, the actual color is quite different from what you see on your screen. Trust me you would never say it is the same color. As well as +/-5-10% in any direction doesn't really make any difference.

Second of all, any color looks absolutely different depending on the time of day, sun angle, type of other lighting, as well as depending on how glossy or flat the actual paint is.

Third of all and most importantly, just one color by itself doesn't create a coherent interior. You can't build the room just around one color! It is a particular combination of all items in the room (fabrics, textures, furniture, wallpaper, rugs, flooring, etc.) which makes you love the room, not just one color. And even though it works nicely in one interior, it doesn't mean it will always work everywhere. Therefore whatever colors you choose, they should be chosen only together with the rest as a part of the entire ensemble.

Hopefully it makes sense.
