Need help matching paing color

Posted by red3scorpio (My Page) on

Hi all! First time home owner here. I am looking for a beige paint color for my living room that can match one I saw at friends house. See attached. They knew it was a SW color, but I am using Ben Moore. It is a warm neutral, slight - very slight pink undertone. I have a blue accent wall in my room so the color can't be too pink. I like warm and neutral, so no yellows, greys or green undertones. Any thoughts on what color(s) would match this? Thanks!

It seems like I've heard Shaker Beige has a slight pink undertone

SW Kilim Beige.

Beige seems so easy! You will need to test several to see how it looks in your light/space. I tried to use the old colors from my MA house when we moved to CA. None of the colors worked in this house/light. Had to repaint twice!

Lots of colors. Choose some from the visual samples and ask the BM dealer to mix you up a few samples based on the picture and the colors in the gallery to try at home. It's cheaper than painting and repainting repeatedly.

I have a pretty beige with the tiniest hint of pink in the undertone in my guest bath...BM Hazelnut Cream
