  1. Does the Sherman Williams color 9173 Shitake have any pink or green undertones to it and if not what color undertones does it have?
    Thank you

  2. Paint colors don’t actually have “undertones”. Undertones are just someone’s subjective opinion about what they think a color looks like under whatever random light source they happen to be viewing it under.

    Shitake is a muted color and it belongs to the Yellow hue family over near the Yellow-Red hue family. Because it’s so close over next to the Yellow-Red hue family, it’s possible in certain qualities of light that you could see moments of peachiness.

    In order for Shitake to look greenish, it would take the perfect combination of lighting and context to cause that kind of shift. Not saying it’s not possible but it’s unlikely.

  3. Does shitake go with cherrywood cabints and brown leather furniture/ What color would compliment that as an accent.

    I have all cream trim, doors, and plantations shutters (Dunn Edwards Cottage White). Will Shitake work with it? Trying to find something that “brightens” the cream, instead of yellowing. I had SW Nomadic Desert, which did the trick, but it’s now too orangy for me.

  5. I just painted Shitake walls in rooms that have SW antique white trim. I thought that the trim might be too yellow to go with Shitake but it looks great. I painted the ceiling SW Creamy, and all the colors look great together and I am picky. And to answer Amy’s question I think it does “brighten” the trim and ceiling paint and did not yellow it at all. Every room has different lighting of course but in my experience its a great neutral color.

  6. Hi Amy,

    Technically, factually there is enough difference in Chroma between Cottage White and Shitake for them to work together. Just make sure you like the look.

  7. I have a red couch and currently have Dorian Gray walls. I am thinking of changing to Shittake. Do you think that would work? The room is well lit. Thank you .

  8. Sure, it could work. The color relationship would work because of how close Shitake is to the yellow-red hue family.
