Which brown is the perfect brown?

December 6, 2012 in Design Dilemma
We currently moved into a new house and we are re-painting the whole house. We have a hard time picking a brown color because the samples we take home look so much different from the actual paint on the wall. Please advise to any suggestions to a good brown color. ( Not
too light )

Browns are tough, how light/dark are you thinking? Do you have a Sherwin-Williams or Benjamin Moore color that is close to what you think you might like? If so, tell me what it is, and maybe the reason you didn't decide on that color.

Look at BM Alexandria Beige. It is not beige. It is definitely brown. I have it in my master bedroom and I could easily live with it all over the house. Looks beautiful with blues, reds, pinks, creamy white, gold, sisal, on and on. And your black chandy.

are you sure you want brown? like a dark brown? that's a pretty bold color to pick without committing to the rest of the decor, furniture, etc.

I am thinking neutrals is your best call, until you are ready to pull together your color scheme, but if you wanted something darker, look at Cabot Trail,

Huntington Beige by BM is a nice brown, also is a great neutral that will complement many colors.
