Hey there! Today I want to talk about the best true beige paint colors that don’t have heavy undertones and answer a reader’s question that was sent to me recently. The question is:
“Hello! I won’t make it too long. I am in need of suggestions for a soft beige paint color that doesn’t have heavy pink, green, or yellow undertones. Just tannish beige for a whole house interior.”
Beige can be a tricky paint color for the exact reasons mentioned above – undertones. I remember when we were trying to find a beige in our previous home I did a ton of sampling because I hate hints of other colors that aren’t supposed to be there. Over a decade of testing paint, I have come to love 5 true beige paint colors that are great neutrals and go well with pretty much anything.
Accessible Beige by Sherwin-Williams
Accessible Beige by Sherwin-Williams has got to be me one of my favorite beige paint colors. This paint color is a great beige that sometimes looks greige and goes well with white, wood, and colored paint.
Undertones: Gray/green at times, but very subtle. The paint is warm and will compliment dark woods, white, black, blues, and greens.
Here is a post about Accessible Beige vs. Revere Pewter
Accessible Beige looks beautiful with dark wood as pictured in the photo above.
Accessible Beige is a color that won’t disappoint. It’s neutral, doesn’t have any heavy undertones, and looks great with stained wood, most colors of paint (stay away from oranges and yellows), and white.
The biggest key to finding out your perfect color is to sample! Find out the easiest way to sample paint here.

Tapestry Beige by Benjamin Moore
Tapestry Beige is another beautiful color that looks lovely paired with dark wood, as pictured below, a bright white, and coastal colors like coral and turquoise.
Undertones: Tapestry Beige is another great “true beige” that can look greige in some lighting, but may have a hint of green in some rooms.
Make sure to sample before you paint. 😉
See a color combination I put together a few years ago with Tapestry Beige.

Grant Beige by Benjamin Moore
Grant Beige is definitely darker than Tapestry Beige and Accessible Beige, but can also add warmth and depth to any room as it is a warmer paint color and doesn’t have as much gray in it’s undertones. It also doesn’t have much gold like some beiges, but acts more like a tan.
See how certain lightings and colors change the hue of Grant Beige in the pictures below.

Pavillion Beige by Sherwin-Williams
Pavillion Beige is another great choice if you are looking for that perfect beige paint color that doesn’t have heavy undertones. This paint color is lighter than Grant Beige but darker than Accessible Beige and Tapestry Beige. It adds depth and warmth when paired with white trim, wood floors, or dark blues.
Pavillion Beige also looks great as an exterior paint color.

Natural Tan by Sherwin-Williams
Last but not least is Natural Tan. I actually love a good tan paint color that doesn’t have the yellows and golds that beiges sometimes have.
I hope this helped you on your hunt to find the best true beige paint color, without a lot of heavy undertones.
I have all these colors as samples through Samplize. )As I have mentioned before, it’s the easiest way to sample paint because you can order online and have it delivered to your door the next day. )
I have the paint samples hanging on my laundry room door, which is painted Pure White by Sherwin Williams. This is an excellent option if you are looking for a trim color for any of these colors. You can see how they compare to each other and how they look next to white. The first picture is in natural light.

The second picture is with the door closed looking into our mudroom, so less natural light, just to give you an idea of how these paints vary in different lighting.
