I have decided to get a different paint. The paint in the living room just didn't "grow" on me at all. If I would have followed my office manager's advice, and gotten paint samples in the first place, I wouldn't have a whole room painted in a paint I can't stand!!!
The paint colors I'm using are Sherwin Williams. I've mentioned that I work in an architect's office. There are many samples around the office, and those samples include paint books. So after thumbing through paint colors today, my office manager recommended two more colors, ones that don't have quite so much yellow undertones in them.
Sherewin Williams sells paint samples by the quart. The store I got them for charged $4.99. It isn't a good quality paint, just something to test with. Here you can see the two different colors, painted on the very gold (appropriately named "Golden") paint.
I'm thinking of going with the one on the left, although I do like the one on the right as well. The flash really does wash out the intensity of the gold color.
