Hello AT,

I'm looking for the right shade of orange for a bedroom accent wall.
mar
I am intrigued by BM 20180-20 Mandarin Orange (Veuve Cliquot, but fear it may be a bit too much for me.)

I am curious as to what the shade used on the wall on the "Apartment Therapy" book cover is?

Any ideas are greatly appreciated!

Thanks! Margaret

Dear Margaret,

We like the cover of our book as well, but we don't know exactly what color paint it would translate to. If you want a bright orange, the Mandarin is really great and good in small doses. If you want to tone it down we recently used Nacho Cheese in our kitchen and really like it. It's orange but mellow.

We would recommend getting your hands on both of these chips as well as looking at the colors just down the color strip from Mandarin Orange. The color chips show ranges and you can try one that is less saturated.

We would also recommend buying a tester or a quart and testing a patch on your wall before committing.

Anyone else??
