I second BM Hot Spring Stones and love it with crisp white trim.

Another paler beige, sort of a greige, is BM Edgecomb Gray which we are considering for the exterior of our house.

Olympai paint sold by Lowes, makes a paint called Grey-beige. I used it in my bathroom....from outside it looks gray and inside the room it looks beige.

With greige paints a lot depends on the time a day you are looking at it. Certain times a day it will look more gray and other times more beige. I used SW perfect greige and from morning to night at different times you wouldn't know it's the same color.

My impression is that greiges are very sensitive to lighting conditions. A greige that looks more tan in Betty's south-facing living room might look totally gray in Bob's north facing master bedroom. Layer on top of that what jterrilynn said about the time of day, and I think you really need to experience the colors for your self in your own space. Internet suggestions are well and good as a starting place, but don't be surprised if your experience with the colors is different from that of the person who recommended them.

Just went down this road. I used BM Stone Hearth. More taupe but everything depends on your lighting. A close second and lighter is SW Accessible Beige. Some of thee others listed above leaned too green,which I have to avoid due to the lighting here. An expensive option is Farrow and Ball Stoney Ground. Changes from grey to greige during different times of the day. I have it in a bedroom. Colors like Revere Pewter is more grey than beige in most lighting. Good luck!

I am partial to BM Revere Pewter. It can also be more beige than grey in certain lights- I have it in all the hallways as trim and it changes from place to place - depending on the light, the number of windows and the direction/location. For instance, our 300+ year old saltbox does not have extremely well lit hallways or vast walls of windows. Revere Pewter reads far more beige then gray and certainly not a "pewter" color.

A few samples checked during different times of day should help you pick the right "Greige" Good luck
