Hi, I'm a huge fan of Ben Moore paint colors. This is "Temporal Spirit". If you like it for your space, make sure to get a large sample to look at in the space you plan to use it because depending on your lighting or the fabrics in your room, the color can appear differently. Good luck!

Hi Elizabeth, I am thinking of using Temporal Spirit in my guest bedroom/office. I have a 8x11" sample swatch pinned to the wall, and it looks very nice. Would you consider this a warm tan, or a cool tan ... or neutral?

Adjacent to the guest bedroom is the guest bathroom which I just paint in Bleeker Beige (at 50%). I would consider this color more on the warm side. However, I would like to introduce some cooler/neutral tones as you progress down the hall to the family room/dining room/kitchen.

Any suggestions for transitioning tones successfully?

Thanks!

Hi, I would consider this a cool creamy shade. It is very neutral. Against the fabrics and carpet in this room it feels more on the cooler side. It's hard to tell you what colors to use for your unique spaces without being there to see what colors, fabrics etc are paired in your rooms and the amount of natural light each rooms receives. I prefer to do neutrals that are universal in hallways so that it's never a jarring difference going from one room to the next. I do like to vary the depth of color in one room to another. Example- light neutrals in one space followed by a rich color in another so that your eye gets to see the light and dark together. Color is important and you may want to consider hiring a designer to help you who can come to your space and evaluate. What may look perfect together here may not look perfect together in your space depending on many factors, does that make sense? Regardless you must put the samples together to see how they relate and if you like what you see then chances are you will like it when you paint. Good luck!
