Good Questions: Does Champagne Orange Work?

Hello AT,

We're big champagne lovers and the idea of painting one of the rooms in our house in the signature yellow Clicquot color seemed almost obvious. It looks awesome during the day, but at night when the lights are dimmed it looks a little too orange-pinkish for my taste.... We used Benjamin Moore color-match to obtain the color and when holding the label against the wall it looks exactly the same. What do you guys think??

Best, Fabio

Dear Fabio,

We love this color and we've used it before, but you are absolutely right, it's too strong used in big stretches. See here:

Used as an accent you are fine. In your case we'd tone it down a bit by taking some of the brightness and yellow out of it. We used Nacho Cheese, which gives a similar impact but doesn't shout at you:

Anyone else???
