This is Why copying Pinterest or Houzz or a Friend's Paint Color RARELY works....
Most people cannot understand why, when they have analyzed and re-analyzed, and even copied a known color - that it doesn't work in their room
Lighting is key. How many windows to you have in the room? What directions does the room face. People don't realize this will affect the final outcome of their paint selection.
The type of lightbulbs and the color of these lightbulbs will also affect color outcome.
What most people don't realize that each directional wall will appear different during the same time of day. Our eyes adjust, so most don't see this.
As well, the colors will change through-out the day based on sun position and clouds. And You thought this would be an easy to just paint a room.

As seen here, bright midday sun will wash out most pale hues (top); that same hue will be flattered by softer, indirect illumination (lower left), while artificial light will add a warm glow to the wall color (lower right).
