I need to pick paint colors. This is pretty hard. I found several really nice colors from sherwin williams, but when I go darker, their undertones become almost tacky. I love Useful Gray, but using this color would make my cabinets a color called Suitable Brown. So how did I jump from gray to brown? Conservative Gray takes me to a shade called Rosemary, which I would call green. This is not easy. I want a nice neutral gray that takes the cabinets into a dark gray, not a gray that goes off some tangent and into a different color.
I am at this point considering Worldly Gray and Urbane Bronze. I actually had to work backwards to get this combination. I found a dark color that was a nice deep gray with maybe some bronze undertone because I am not looking for "Elephant Bum" for a color. When I found the Urbane Bronze, I worked my way down it's color chart to Worldly Gray.
Now I need to drive to the paint store to see if my hunch was right...
