paints for upstairs

Currently deciding on paint colors for the office upstairs. This is the carpet sample. I'm staying all neutral, seeing as this is not our house forever, and as it's my office and I want some calm base colors that won't compete with any other fabrics I'm going to be working with up there.


I'm leaning towards SW Stucco, the large chip on the left. But any favorite linen/cream/beige paint color suggestions welcome!

Hi Casey! I think I see Softer Tan there on the one chip and maybe 2 below that is Basket Beige. We have Softer Tan in our hallway and Basket Beige in our bedroom - love them both. They aren't too pink or too yellow - they are great true neutrals (in my opinion).

One of my fave creamy neutrals is Natural Cream by Benjamin Moore. We've used it throughout our main floor and I really find it to be a soft neutral colour. For what it's worth, the Stucco is reading a bit peach on my computer. I guess there's no way to tell online though!

So smart to go with a neutral office - whether you stay there or not. Stucco looks like a great color too. Will stay tuned to see where you go from here.

We have Serena and Lily oatmeal in our living room , kitchen and entry. It is so soothing . I never tire of it:)

Ooooh this is going to look beautiful! The SW Stucco is my favourite choice too!

Love that SW paint chip with Kilim Beige and Nomadic Desert. I have used almost all the colors on that entire strip! Dont think you could go wrong with any of those...and SW paint in the Cashmere finish is THE BEST!

I've had good luck with Kilim Beige and I adore Ben. Moore's Bleeker beige. Beige with some depth without being too muddy. Check it out.

I love the color chip that's front and center, what color is that? I like the lighter one you choose as well, but there is something about that color I like (the chip in the middle)

Love neutrals, and you always do them so well. Wish I could chip in with paint colors, but I am at a total loss in that category!
