|I am looking for a golden tan paint color. Pics would be appreciated. Also, it will probably have to come from Lowes or Home Depot due to budget, and I was wondering if they can truly color match SW or BM colors?|
|BM Sea Spray. It's the primary color in my home. My pictures do not show the color well. My sofa is tweed with goldish tones. The color is a perfect soft goldish tan.|
|Oooo...I'd like to see BM SeaSpray. :) I am getting tired of Decatur Buff in my bedroom. |
Yes, o answer your question, rocky08, most paint colors can be matched by others pretty well.
|I have Pony Tails C15-3 (Thank you Caroline) from Olympic Paints above the chair rail in my kitchen. It is a lovely golden tan colour. Home Depot did a great job matching the colour from the swatch Caroline sent me.|
|I have BM's Desert Tan, it's a beautiful golden tan.|
|BM Desert Tan is a beautiful warm color. Many people I know have used it.|
|SW Whole Wheat or Camelback.|
|HD or Lowes can match any paint! I am currently sampling paints and I have had many samples matched to different paints from both BM and SW. They have them all in their computer so it shouldn't be a problem. Golden Ecru from Pittsburgh Paints and Olympic is a warm golden tan. Pretty! |
|Rocky - Here is a picture of "Caramel." It's an Eddie Bauer from Lowe's. In person, it's a true, warm caramel color - golden tan, but my camera is making it appear much more yellow. |
|I used BM wilmington tan (u can have it made at lowes or hd). |
THere are pics on a thread labeled...wall arrangement.
|BM Shelburne Buff is the best IMO.|
|another vote for SW Whole Wheat, We have it in our den/hallway and it's a great color|
|another vote for Wilmington Tan. It's one of my favorite BM colors. I think Jan in Wisconsin has it in her family room. Maybe you can find it if you do a search.|
|Here's a picture of our living room with BM Wilmington Tan: |
|Wow! I am loving the Wilmington Tan. It may be too dark though. What is the next color up? I am not sure how the house will be lit because I haven't closed yet and gotten to see it at different times of the day. It doesn't get a lot of natural light except the LR in the evening. I haven't gotten to the store yet, but I plan on picking up all the colors suggested and checking them out. Thanks!|
|I had wilmington tan in my LR and foyer in a north facing house a few years ago--sorry, no pics, but it looks exactly as you see in Jan's home. I did not think it was too dark--it's such a rich color. I always buy a quart mixed in the finish I plan to paint and slap it on an entire wall. I find HD matches colors pretty well.... |
And you asked about the next color up on the card--but Wilmington Tan is a historical color. The 3 colors they put on the card are related, but not always variations of the same color. Maybe funcolors can chime in here with a better explanation, but going lighter or darker on the same card may not give you the color you want...
|guesthouse by benjamin moore is a good one too. I just painted my kitchen and family room in this color. I chose it because I too wanted a tan with a golden hue to it. Good luck!|
|BM Pittsfield or Powell buff are lighter. |
SW whole wheat?
|I love my BM Squire Hill Buff. My neighbor used BM Powell Buff, it is one or two shades lighter than mine. |
