  1. Hi there! On the Acadia White post, I saw the information about the rule of thumb of .20 difference in Chroma for two adjacent colors of white. I am wondering if that is a minimum amount of difference, so for example, Acadia White with Kelly Moore Swiss Coffee for trim is a bigger difference in Chroma. Would that be OK? As far as I can tell matching visually from a sample and with Color Muse, the existing trim and cabinets are KM Swiss Coffee. I am looking for a compatible white in yellow hue family for walls in the whole house (primarily South and West facing windows).
