What type of paint colour is Fawn Brindle – warm gray, greige or taupe?
Fawn Brindle is a warm colour with a very subtle green undertone, making it a GREIGE paint colour. If you’re not sure about the difference between greige and taupe, you may want to read THIS.
If you have a home with north-facing light (either interior or exterior), you can expect Fawn Brindle to look as expected or lean just a wink back into gray (just a touch). However, if you have south-facing light or afternoon western sunshine, expect this bad boy to warm right up without looking beige.
What’s the LRV of Fawn Brindle?
With an LRV of 36, Fawn Brindle is the PERFECT medium depth. If you have a dark room, it will lean into its depth/warmth that bit more, but if you have a BRIGHT room it won’t wash out as much as light colours will.
