Anyone looking for some great warm yet neutral paint colors for recommending to your selling clients?  I have just done my third house in Sherwin Williams Hopsack and Latte.  WOW these colors are beautiful and work well with so many accent colors.  Being from Minnesota the warmer colors do well in our climate.  Another new color that I just painted a whole house in is SW Roasted Pine Nut.  I used this color throughout the main level and had it lightened by 25% for the walk out lower level.  Soft, rich, warm and beautiful... Very nice covering paint, can usually cover in one coat application is the Super Paint brand.

I too want a warm neutral. I don't want the under tones of green, yellow, pink etc. I was considering softer tan. After looking at the comments above maybe kilim beige would be better. I had worried that a beige color might have a pinkish under tone.

I have a split level house we are finishing to sell. I just used Kilim Beige in my basement bedrooms (north facing and east facing). At first it looked "pinkish" on the walls but once the whole room was done I was happy with the choice. I think it will be a good color for my entry way and the stairway going down.  Hope this helps!

RC in CG-

We just painted our basement family room in Hopsack and bedrooms in Kilim Beige. I could send you pictures if you'd like?  I used a flat and it while it looked like a melted chocolate shake going on, it's dried to a nice milk chocolate brown.

SW 6106 Kilim Beige has a strong red undertone.  It looks like foundation painted on the wall.  I personally hate this color against the cherry cabinets in the bathroom in my new home.  My previous home had yellow undertone beige carpet and my furniture also has the yellow undertones, so painting SW6107 Nomadic Desert and SW 6108 Latte was the perfect color to choose. 

My new home has brown carpet, brown/beige tile, and cherry wood cabinets--all with red undertones.  In loving the paint colors in my old home, I was going to use the same paint colors.  However, because these paint colors have a red undertone, the paint color did not go, clashed, and looked horrible bringing out a strong red undertone in the paint color.

I spent a lot of money buying Sherwin-Williams paint samples after painting the bathroom that awful color.  I didn't want to make another costly mistake.  I didn't want to paint my kitchen green, even though I personally like the color because one day I will sell and was told it would limit buyers.  I did find a beige with a subtle yellow under tone I found at a model home.  It is called Toasted Pine Nut SW 7696.  It was the only color I tried that didn't look like mustard (Mannered Gold and others on the same color strip)...in pictures of other homes painted these golden beige color looked beautiful, but my home it looked horrible.

What I am sharing is if the wood color, tile, carpet, and your furniture has a yellow undertone, then SW Nomadic Desert SW6107, SW 6108 Latte, and SW 6109 Hopsack would look beautiful in your home.  If your home  has red undertone carpet, tile, furniture, and Cherry wood or any deep red color, these paint colors will not give you the WOW look you are trying to achieve.  Also, dark rooms should be painted the lighter color and will look like the darker shade.  In my previous home, I painted Latte in my living room that was poorly lit and it looked like Hopsack.  Against my light furniture, the living room looked larger instead of smaller; however. I had to bring more lights to the room when I went to sell it.  Like I said, I loved these colors and it would have made my life easier if this SW 16 color strip worked for my new home.

For my bathroom, I think I will repaint it a gray color against the Cherry Cabinets as my color choice is limited.  As far as my grand entry, dining room, and other rooms I am going to hire a designer to choose the colors.  It was so stressful and costly for the rooms I did paint.  Oh, my 2nd bathroom I choose a blue color SW7613 Aqua-Sphere and the bathroom Silvermist SW7621. My teen loves that color and it does go.

I hope in sharing my experience will help others in choosing the right color for your home.  Do invest in color samples paint, it will save you from a costly mistake should you discover it was not the look you were hoping for.
