What type of paint colour is Benjamin Moore Stone House? Is it warm or cool? Beige or tan?

Stone House is alllll beige with its beautiful warm undertones (which we’ll get into below), and being a beige, this makes it a WARM paint colour. If you have north-facing light, morning western or afternoon eastern light, Stone House can help balance that cool flat light out with its pretty warmth.

However, if you have south-facing or afternoon western sunshine, be aware that Stone House can lean into its warmth quite a bit!

What are the undertones of Stone House? Will it look pink?

Stone House has been popular for so long because its undertones work well with many of the tiles, carpet and countertops used in the last 30 years. This is because while its undertones center on orange, there is a wink o’ pink in there too!

Is Stone House a good exterior colour?

Stone House can be a beautiful exterior colour as its LRV will hold up to intense light a bit better than lighter beige and tan paint colours. However, make sure its undertones connect with the undertones in your roof, brick or stone!
