Paint Color

I just purchased paint from Benjamine Moore 2159-40 (amber wave) and AC-9 (Nugget). These colors seem too dark. The Benjamine Moore specialist suggested that we use the Nugget as the accent wall. For some reason it doesn't look to good. Can someone suggest a color that will compliment (Amber Wave) or a color that we can use as an accent wall with the color (Amber Wave).

Looking for HELP.

Thank you.

Oh! you can find the color on Benjamine Moore's website

I like to use the same color only lighter or deeper. If you want an accent wall to pop you can relate it to a color in the art that you might put on that wall. But, the monochromatic (one color) theme is very pleasing to the eye. It can be achieved by having the paint store tint it a shade lighter or darker. (depending on your taste). If you have any unique architecture in your house like insets or bookcases you can paint the inset the lighter shade and the wall the darker. You didn't mention trim color. If you feel the color is too dark ask the color specialist to make it one or two shades lighter. When it dries it will be a shade darker.
