I thought picking a cheerful yellow paint would be easy, but it has been a bit of a marathon.
I started off with Farrow and Ball (doesn't everyone who lives in an old house?)
But it wasn't successful at all, the yellows were cold and greeny grey and very different to the colours on the chart.
Then I tried Dulux, I started with their buttercup ranges, which although pinky yellow on the charts, came out green and cold on the walls.
Finally I tried the golden fern range, which looked as dark gold as the original nicotine swirls on the walls, but actually came out a lot lighter and had that yellow, pink dawn glow that I had been searching for.
