Ask Erika – Amy

by Erika Woelfel


Colorfully, Behr reader Amy asked us about Behr’s most popular taupes and sage greens. Read Erika’s advice below!

Please help me! I have lived in a log home for fifteen years and have never had to pick out paint colors. Now I am moving to a new home with nine rooms to paint.  Could you please tell me a few of your most popular neutral taupes and light sage greens? I am completely overwhelmed!




Hi Amy,

Thank you for contacting me with your question!

Choosing paint colors can be a very daunting task.  I have made a list of our four most popular neutral taupe colors that you may want to consider.  I have also found four very popular sage green colors that I think you will really like.

The neutrals are Gobi Desert 710C-3, Sandstone Cove 730C-2, Classic Taupe 290E-3 and Haze ICC-22.

The sages are as follows, Rejuvenate 410E-3, Sagey 420F-4, Restful 400F-4 and Spring Hill 420E-3.

Due to differences in monitors and technical factors, the colors here cannot be represented with their true qualities.  These color samples should only be considered a guide.  Please refer to actual swatches for true color.  I recommend beginning with an 8 oz. sample container of the color you choose and apply it to a small area on your wall to ensure your satisfaction with the color choice. It is always a good idea to see how the light and ambient conditions affect the color at different points in the day.

Thank you for taking the time to email me and I wish you well in your future projects.
