I have a large inset wall in my living room that i’ve been struggling with. My living room is a bit dark for half of the day so I wanted to paint this wall yellow. I bought a few quarts of different yellows (each has a different finish) but couldn’t settle on any of them. Yellow is a tricky color for a large space like this. It can start to get annoying if its too high chroma but if its not sunny enough it begins to feel heavy. I started painting a few swatches of each on the wall to watch how the color felt different times of the day.
The process didn’t get me any closer to picking a single color but it did make me curious what the wall would look like with more ‘swatches’ on it. After about 20 layers I stopped. I like the result. Its sunny without being annoying and spaced enough to avoid appearing ‘heavy’. This is probably not going to last more than a few months. But for the time being i’m enjoying the fractured, sunny wall.
