Need help with Paint colors!!

Hey gals,


 


Does anyone have some tried and true colors preferrably neutrals or in the green family that look great on the wall and don't tine towards pink? The name brand and color would be awesome!


I always pick beigy colors but they end up looking pinkish when it gets on the wall!!


Any tried adn true colors would be great pics too:)


 


TIA

A blogger I follow has been working on repainting her entire house to counteract that same issue (she calls the color "swine," lol). Here are some of the colors she's chosen so far: http://theinspiredroom.net/2011/01/11/the-paint-colors-so-far/


It's VERY hard to find a true neutral paint. Most have some undertone. If you lean toward gold or green undertones, you should be safe from the pink! I find Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams to have fantastic selections of neutrals. Some of my faves:


BM - Davenport Tan, Shaker Beige, Coastal Path, Bleeker Beige, Hush, Coastal Fog


SW - Softer Tan, Nantucket Dune, Favorite Tan, Kilim Beige, Rice Grain, Ramie


Others - Olympic Camel, Behr Harvest Brown, Behr Chamois Tan
