Please help identify this paint colour?

Does anyone have any guesses as to what this paint colour could be? I'm looking for a light neutral colour and came across this photo. I started painting my kitchen SW Antique White, but find it too light.

I used the Sherwin Williams "chip it" tool and it suggested 2834 Birdseye Maple and 0044 Hubbard Squash. Hope that helps

Here's a link with light, neutral colors. Probably not the exact one you are looking for, but it offers other options.

Here is a link that might be useful: Link

It's definitely not Hubbard Squash. I've used that quite often.

BenM Northern Cliffs 1536

Dunn Edwards DE6228 Play on Gray

The pic has a good spot, to the right of the window, to pull a digital sample and then convert it to paint. What you see on your monitor may indeed differ from what I see on mine, but color math is color math and the pixels in that photo (however you see it) align with the colors above.

Behr photo match says Arbor Hollow ECC 37-1

I tried chip it but it wasn't the least bit helpful.

To my eye, there's much less gray in it than the on line swatches would suggest. So I'd suggest looking at the swatches in real life. I'm thinking
BM Cedar Key

Maybe BM baby fawn (which is redundant!)
