Help! Beige/Tan bathroom paint color suggestions?

MonalissaJuly 14, 2011

Hello! We're moving to our new apartment in 2 weeks where the floor and accent tile colors are unique. We don't want the bright green color that the walls are currently painted. We're thinking a beige/tan that will coordinate with the grout in the floor.

Some colors I've been researching that seem popular are (all BM): Lenox Tan (too dark?), Shaker Beige (too pink?), Blanched Almond (looks gold in some photos I've seen), Everlasting and Stone House. There is a small window inside the shower. That's it for natural light.

Can anyone give their opinion on which of these might work? I want a nice neutral color that isn't too yellow, or green, or pink.... Other color suggestions would be much appreciated also. I'm horrible at this -- THANKS!! :)

Here are a couple of pictures:

Thanks, I will check it out! I'm guessing it is not a straight grey?

Just painted a room SW Softer Tan. Very soothing color. Not pink, or grey or yellow.
After looking at your pictures, have you considered a nice off white to go with the tiles? It might help to unify the walls, then you could use a complimentary color in your towels,rug and shower curtain, etc.
