🔮 𝚀&𝙰: 𝚆𝚑𝚊𝚝 𝚒𝚜 𝙼𝚎𝚝𝚊𝚖𝚎𝚛𝚒𝚜𝚖? — how to pick paint colors. (3 of 4)

Take the wall color in this gorgeous living room by designer Lindsay Pincus. It would look like a neutral gray if not for the yellow curtains. The pops of color intensify the wall color making it appear more like a midnight blue. What’s the exact paint color? Don’t know and don’t care. By focusing on relationships we could repeat this effect without using the exact color. In fact if we copied the color but didn’t take metamerism into consideration we might not get the same effect.
