Painting with lighter color


Hi everyone,
So I just finished painting the living room/dining room with BM "light yellow". The wife feels it is not light enough and wants to go over with the "creme brule" which is the same tint as the light yellow, just a slightly whiter version.
Do you think since these two colors use the same tint that one coat will do the job, or at least look reasonable? Or will 2 be necessary?

thanks,

John

If it's a flat paint, maybe one coat. Probably two though.
