Taupe Paint

belle123September 26, 2010

Does anyone know of a greige/taupe for exterior that is neutral, brown or gray tone and doesn't pull yellow, green or pink? I'm having difficulty picking one because of my brick color (which is the tumbled look mostly orange but multicolored with some red, brown, black and white).

I have tried quite a few colors from SW & BM but they seem to drastically alter and turn the paints either yellow, green or pink. Here's what I've tried...

SW Latte (very gold)

SW Utterly Beige (too light and pink)

BM Tavern Taupe (green)

BM Lenox Tan (gold)

BM Davenport Tan (golden chestnut)

BM Weimeraner (best so far, but still a bit pink)

BM Driftwood (pink)

We would really appreciate any advice and thanks in advance!

Try Benjamin Moore "Bennington Gray." It's really not gray--it's a nice taupe. We used it for our house and it combines very nicely with the brick.
