Hello to all-I have spent a fortune on tester paints for the exterior of my house. need to find a "greige" that is more tan than gray. Any ideas? thanks
Have you tried BM Berkshire Beige?
BM Stone House, BM Bleeker Beige, BM Grant Beige, BM At Home With Nature
thanks much. will look at all these!
BM Hot Spring Stones
BM glacial till
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.
BM Manchester Tan, Edgecomb Gray, and Lancaster Whitewash.
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.
SW Accessible Beige.

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!
Another vote for BM edgecomb gray, Manchester tan and grant beige.
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
BM Brandon Beige might be another to try
