I was going to just post this with my other posts, but I thought maybe I might be able to get an answer if I started another thread.

I look at photos like this:

contemporary bedroom design by new york kitchen and bath Kitchens & Baths, Linda Burkhardt

And I see "cream" on the wall, yet when I go to the paint store, and bring home chips and tape them up, on white paper, the creamy ones just look like pale yellow to me.

I thought I liked BM's Affinity ylang ylang, but maybe it really is yellow.

I want cream Not yellow. Not beige. Not tan.

I want white to pop against it, I want it to be warm.

Should I buy my cream bedding first and then try to match that, if I"m going to use this as an inspiration picture,( of course modifed with some touches of wasabi-ish pillows)?
