Why is the color on my bathroom walls different from the can of paint I used?

Stephen asked 4 years ago

I bought a few cans of light taupe to paint over the peach color in our bathroom. After painting the walls the color on the walls ended up being a light gray. At first I thought it had something to do with the lighting in the room but it’s not.

I brought into the bathroom the can of taupe paint, a taupe color-sheet sample, and a small piece of wood that I painted with the new paint. Everything looks the correct color in this room except for the walls themselves.

So, is this an issue with the old paint bleeding through? Should I have used primer or something first?
