Woodlawn Blue may lean more towards blue or green in colour depending on the lighting and what other decorative elements you pair with it in your interior decorating project.
Looking at the colour comparisons below will help give you a better idea of where Woodlawn Blue fits between two similar shades, one that is more green and the other that is more blue.

I always love to compare a paint colour so you can clearly see the true tones. It’s often not until you have a colour side by side with similar shades that the tones become obvious. Don’t miss this step when selecting your paint colours.
During a colour consultation, I always make sure to show my large paint boards against different elements such as flooring, tile and fabrics. I swap them out to show my client just how different similar colours can look next to their existing finishes.

I tend to have around 10 white paint colours that are my best whites for trim and ceilings. You don’t need to look at the thousands of whites available to find the right one and you definitely don’t need to mix two different whites or use only a certain percentage of a paint colour to get the right one for you.
I can assure you that the best colour for your project already exists, you just need to know the 5 Steps on how to choose the right paint colour the first time.
