Dream House: Office Color

Happy Friday guys!  The last couple of days I've been busy looking for office paint colors. It is fun but I never realized how difficult it is because there are just a gazzillion different shades of colors.  So many different undertones to consider and to be honest it is quite overwhelming.    

Initially  I wanted these colors...

 Benjamin Moore Gentle Cream-OC-96
From their site is is described as...

This exquisite, slightly darker cream is soothing and richly shaded, adding depth and interest to formal living spaces.

I love these color because they are so light and airy.  I will be having white trim and furnitures and I think it will go well with these color schemes giving it a warm clean feel.  However, I didn't put into consideration where the room is facing.  It actually faces west and gets a lot of sunshine during afternoon.  I read that it is best not to get yellow or bright colors because it will just increase the warmness of the room and could be blinding when it is too bright.  And a lot people suggested to get something neutral on the cooler side of the color spectrum.  That's when I found these colors...

Benjamin Moore Blue Ice-821

This soft purplish-blue spans a surprising seasonal range, conjuring thoughts of ice skating on a frozen lake or a cool dip on a hot summer day.

Benjamin Moore Nimbus Gray 2131-50
As dense as the cloud for which it's named, this cool mid-tone blue-gray evokes memories of an early winter walk on a deserted wind-swept beach.
