Hello AT, For months I've been angst-ing over the color choice for a dark living room. I know what I want (I think): a clear, light- but- saturated- in-hue yellow cooled with an also clear, light-but- saturated -in-hue green. Not Ben Moore, nor Ralph L, nor Glidden paint has the color I want; they're all subtly cooled with brown or gray, or the yellows are too pink or orange...

So I've decided to go the Ben Moore route and get approximate colors and mix them. But then I worry that the bases used to mix them, complex as they are, will somehow mess up the results. I think I'm headed for an aesthetic nervous breakdown. Someone, please, put me out of my misery! Thanks! Aulaire Anyone?
