retinting paint


I have purchased paint for a bedroom,but it is a rosie beige which I don't like . Is there someway I can change the color to get the red reduced and have more of a grey toned beige. What color do I use ,Orange?

To cancel a "rose"-tone, Green has to be added in SMALL amounts...a shot or 2 at a time.

Using Orange will make it worse in a hurry!

Past cancelling the rose, further adjustment depends on the existing formula. Black or Brown may help.

Agreed, you need a good paint store with a tinter who knows his stuff (points at self ) I do it for my customers at no charge, some stores may charge, just depends on the store.
