I'm going nuts trying to find the right color that doesn't scream 'mustard' or is a bit too bland like light butter/cream for my living room. My upholstered furniture is white/creamy/taupy, I have an oriental rug in primarily red/burgundy colors and I have pops of color in my accent pieces so I just need a warm yellow to provide a calm backdrop. I also have lots of light to due to a 12'-wide picture window. Any thoughts? Thanx!

I would not look for a specific yellow shade. I would look at the whites on the color wheel for one with a hint of yellow. Especially if the room is already bright. My sister did Benjamin Moore Linen White and it has a cast of yellow and is really pretty. I did Antique White and it has a true hint of pink. I tried the lightest yellow I could find for a bedroom & it came up like a yellow highlighter marker. It was horrendous. I had to paint over it twice to cover it. Talk to someone at a local paint store near you, they will recommend something.
