One of the trickiest paint colours to get right is yellow, but this shade is just right
London - Arabstoday

One of the trickiest paint colours to get right is yellow, but this shade is just right Some people know what general paint colour they want but struggle with envisioning the exact shade. Others are just scared to commit to colour because they're not sure what works best with their furniture. One of the main points is that the colours you may like may be very different from colours you actually want to live with.
Some shades translate perfectly to walls. Some, although beautiful, are better saved for fabrics or rugs. Here are some shades of popular, tried and true paint colours along with their exact name and brand:
1. For Blue, try Benjamin Moore's Quiet Moments 1563 - One of my favourite choices for a bedroom is a soft sky blue with a subtle sage undertone. Blue is calming and a logical choice for slumber-inducing relaxation.
2. For Green, try Farrow & Ball's Ball Green 25 - I have long admired the shade of green in this kitchen. I think it's perfectly paired with the white cabinets and does a good job of adding warmth.
3. For Red, try Sizzling Haute AC119R by Duron - I like to go with a pure, fire engine red. I paint one or two walls and then throw in some more red in rugs or fabrics. I like pairing red with blue or brown as accents.
4. For Yellow, try Benjamin Moore's Mushroom Cap 177 - One of the trickiest paint colours to get right is yellow, but this shade is just right. A tip for picking a yellow from a paint fan deck: Select something that looks almost beige. Yellow is always much brighter on a wall than on a paint chip.
5. For Brown, try Sherman-Williams' Tea Chest SW6103 - My favourite neutral colour for walls is brown. There are many beautiful shades of brown that are so versatile. Brown works great with orange, green, red and other neutral shades.
6. For Greige, try Benjamin Moore's Revere Pewter HC-172 - A made-up colour, but important enough to mention because I’ve seen it so much. A soft gray with beige undertones that is a perfect complement to most white marbles, such as Calacatta. It's a great solution for those who feel grey is too cold.
7. For Beige, Sherwin-Williams' Accessible Beige SW7036 - A basic beige is a must-have for everyone’s paint arsenal. I love beige all through the house punctuated with bold colour and other neutrals. Loved for its versatility, beige is also a great choice as a backdrop for an art collection.
8. For Lavender, try Benjamin Moore's Organdy 1248 - I know some loyal lavender lovers. A soft, barely there shade of this colour is gorgeous and looks best with a crisp white trim. I love mixing lavender with robin's egg blue or grey.
9. For Pink, try Bella Pink SW 6596 - Not just for little girls' bedrooms, pink can be very sophisticated in the right shade. My favourite pinks are soft and purely pink. Pink looks great paired with white, gray, green and blue.
10.For Grey, try Dunn-Edwards' Baby Seal DE 6361 - A popular colour for modern and transitional interiors, grey is a unique neutral. I love a soft charcoal grey paired with creamy whites and beige. Try grey with a punch of chartreuse for a surprising combination that really works.
11. For White, try Benjamin Moore White’s Dove OC-17 - is really one of the most asked-about colours. The perfect white is sought after for cabinets and trim. Undertones in white paint are important and can really shift a palette.
12. For Black, try Beluga by Behr - A surprisingly elegant choice for any room, black looks great against most colours. When using black, try contrasting it with crisp white trim and punchy colours in fabrics or rugs. I prefer to see an eggshell finish on walls, and black looks particularly sophisticated in eggshell.
