Ask Erika: Kristin

Colorfully, Behr reader Kristin asked us about the best taupe colors. Read Erika’s advice below!

I am looking for a taupe color to paint the interior of my home. I had originally selected Cappuccino Froth, but the hue has too much pink in it. Would you suggest a few other options?






Hi Kristin,

Thanks for writing in. The color you are looking at is a bit complex. It is a taupe-gray that contains a slightly rosy tint. Depending on how much light is in the room, it could turn a little pinkish on the walls.

If you are looking for something without the reddish base, consider Ashen Tan N220-2 or Doeskin Gray N200-2. Both are taupe colors that do not show off a rosy tint, and are found on either side of Cappuccino Froth in the color display. It is always a good idea to test colors in an area to make sure they work with lighting in your home and other decorative products like flooring, window treatments and furniture.

Colorfully yours,
