Colours get washed-out and look much lighter outside, with more light and the fact they are surrounded by darker colours i.e. driveways, lawns, mulch etc. makes them look so much lighter than your sample swatches.
This sample on the white paint lid is the colour on one of these photos????
Its actually the lighter colour below the other was the original colour.
The owner had picked one quarter strength of this colour deceived by the swatch against a white background.
We led her back to full strength & she was delighted with the result.
