How do you determine a paint color’s undertone?
To determine the undertone of a paint color, place the chip on a pure white sheet of paper and then compare ROYGBIV colors to the chip individually. The undertone will be the color which your swatch most looks like. The paint swatch will lean towards the other color.
Is blue a warm or cool blue paint color?
When we talk about warm or cool colors, there are inherently warm colors like red and orange and cool colors like blue and purple. But when we talk about warm and cool paint colors, we are usually comparing them to other colors.
In the swatches above, Naval is cooler than Gale Force which leans green blue. Because Gale Force is diluted with another color, it appears warmer when compared to Naval. But on its own, it own it would be a cool paint color.

Don’t Forget to test your paint colors!
Finally, as always the colors you see in other people’s homes won’t look the same in your home. Often times, photos are edited, lightened or color corrected. Don’t rely solely on photos to make your decision- trust the process and sample the paint
So choose a few colors you want to try LARGE swatches of those colors!
Choosing the wrong paint color is an expensive mistake you do not want to make!
