Dealing with day/night color of paint...

10 years ago

I'm still trying to find a wall color for my living room redo. I like light colors. What I've noticed, is that a light color disappears during daytime. I actually have to look up at the ceiling line to see the wall color against the white ceiling.

At night, that same light color suddenly shows up, loud and clear.

If I use a color that is dark enough to be clearly seen during the day, that color will be way too dark for my taste at night.

So if I use a light color that can't be seen during the day, and I decorate around "colorless" walls, what happens at night when my colorless walls show their color? How do you all deal with the disappearing color in your rooms?

TIA for any thoughts or suggestions.
