The perfect gray-green-tan

September 23, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I am in a paint color dilemma. I am looking for a gray with a green undertone that verges on tan. I had my eye on Benjamin Moore's Coastal Fog or Paris Rain, but they are both too dark. I want something a little brighter, since the targeted room does not get much natural light. I also don't want it to read too minty.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I know it is a tall order.

Thanks,
Jennifer

Take a look at Sherwin Williams Sedate Grey. It's a kind of chameleon color, but very neural.

From what direction does the light (minimal) come from? Even if your room seems dark to you, the light you do get will impact the color on the walls.

North:.BM Slip

West: BM Touch of Gray

East: BM Violet Pearl

South: BM Gull Wing Gray.

West light, IMO, is the worst. Turns everything this yukky yellow. So, go darker, if you light is West.

I believe that Ben Moore's HC Bleeker Beige may be what you're looking for..The gray undertone is not dominant...I have it in an East room and it appears to go w/ everthing..

I actually have Bleeker Beige in my main living area. Love it, just looking for something different to coordinate with it now.

Used BM Sea Haze in 14x20 BR with two windows--one southwest, one northwest. Changes from gray to green, sometimes looks khaki. Love it!

BM Doily?
BM Tree Moss?
BM Elemental?

Sea Haze is a fascinating color. It is definitely hard to beat.

Paint out samples and test in your room. Color is not the same in different lights.
