Medium taupe is a great background color for this mid-century modern style home. The window casing (trim) and the baseboards have been painted the same color as the walls. Orange makes a striking accent color.
Here is the entry area in the same home. The white ceiling and light travertine floor tile brighten up the space. And don't the warm wood tones look great against this color?
This paint: Designer Shelly Amoroso used Benjamin Moore Alexandria Beige #HC-77.
A deeper tone looks dramatic when paired with crisp white in this traditional style home. This is a very popular image on Houzz.
This paint: Here Amoroso used Benjamin Moore, Mesa Verde Tan #AC-33, flat latex paint.
The dining room is painted a lighter coordinating tone. Dark accents like the black chandelier, high contrast animal pattern rug and espresso wood tones stand out and add to the drama.
This paint: Benjamin Moore, Bleeker Beige #HC-80, flat latex.

Here is a serene palette of taupe with butter yellow with a bit of blue-gray. It works nicely with the dark brown dining table.
This dark taupe is worthy of framing a spectacular view and great art.
