Sherwin Williams Safari looks more taupe on my computer screen than this does. This looks more like a light chocolate milkshake to me, which is what I've been looking for. I found it in Benjamin Moore Foggy Morning, 2106-70. When I look at Foggy Morning on my computer screen though, it doesn't look like the actual paint on my walls, which does look pretty much exactly like the paint in this room appears on my computer screen.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Design Element: Cowhide
This pair of cowhide chairs are an integral part of the mix of eclectic textures in this room.
Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to 11 Area Rug Rules and How to Break Them
Rule 10: Combine rugs. In making rug decisions for a room, another approach would be to bring in multiple area rugs. This can be very effective when the room is large with more than one seating arrangement.
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to 10 Ways to Make Your Neutral Palette Shine
This room is so interesting and it works on so many levels. Lots to learn here about working with a neutral color palette. First, I would like to point out that all of the above elements are included: Different shades of color, multiple textures that are of high quality, interesting shapes and different materials, and wonderful patterns. But there is even more going on here that contributes to the success of this design.7. You can mix your neutrals. Most people think a neutral color palette is made of a bunch of beige. But there are other neutral colors and you can mix them if you want. In this room, the designer has mixed shades of beiges and browns with several shades of gray: light silver-gray, medium steel gray and also deep charcoal. 8. Add black (or almost-black) for punctuation. In this room, the black on the cowhide chairs adds a strong bit of punctuation and so does the dark color on the rugs — more of a charcoal. In fact, notice that in all 4 photos you've seen so far, there is a little bit of black or near-black. The first room has black lampshades, the second room has black picture frames and espresso wood, and the third room has that super deep almost-black wood.9. Include elements from nature for interest and warmth. I'm crazy about the driftwood lamp bases in this room!
This is the same clients' home in Tribeca, a previous collaboration with Tara. "I fought to bring in a bit of color through silver, gold, flesh and a very pale blue," Tara says, but that was as far into color as they wanted to go.
Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Work With Brown
Between the walls, the furniture and the accessories, this room has a lot of different browns going on. It works because they are all in the same family and they are brought together by neutral creams.
Beth Woodson and Kristy Woodson Harvey added this to 9 Tasteful Ideas for Traditional Living Room Floors
Split up your seating areas. A cavernous room can be difficult to decorate, but dividing it into two separate sitting areas creates intimacy and makes conversation easier. Instead of using one huge rug in a room like this, identical rugs bind the spaces together while still allowing them to maintain distinct personalities.More living room furniture arrangements
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to 11 Ways to Spice Up Neutral Palettes
With neutral palettes you can throw in an unexpected, whimsical detail. These cowhide chairs are just the thing to contrast the neutral colors and add interest.
Matching area rugs can feel a bit predictable and safe. Using an unusual rug is one way to avoid that problem. Here a bold graphic is repeated on both sides of the room. The repetition helps to temper the high-contrast pattern so it doesn't overwhelm the space.
Corral the herd. This pair of black and white cowhide tub chairs injects a strong sense of the owner’s humor into a very restrained seating group. Personality is important to a room’s design, and here we can see the owner’s whimsical side.
Natasha Saroca added this to 12 Beige Rooms That Are Anything but Boring
6. (Cow)hide and seekYou won’t just be seeing cowhide underfoot this year – you’ll be sitting on it, too. Upholstered furniture in this natural material will look right at home in any beige space and lift it accordingly.
Catherine Funkhouser added this to 9 Reasons to Pick a Patterned Lampshade
The pattern stars of this room are the graphic rugs and the cowhide-covered chairs. Other elements in the room play supporting roles, including the driftwood lamps and their richly textured shades. I’m not sure what the material is (cork? grass cloth?), but it’s a great earthy complement to the natural lamp bases.More: How to Choose a Lampshade
Upholstered pieces are a relatively large investment, so you’ll want things that will last through changes in your lifestyle and taste. As a rule, it’s best to go with simple, clean lines. And don’t fret too much about whether furnishings will go together, Caccoma says. Generally speaking, if you like the pieces, they’ll work together. “Pick something because you like it,” she says. “Don’t worry about why and where it’s going to go.”
