When it comes to the best tan and beige paint colours, Sherwin Williams is in the lead, especially with a colour like Natural Tan, a GORGEOUS neutral that we’re taking a close look at today.

In order to show you RELATEABLE & REAL homes, I ONLY use photos from my Online Colour Consulting clients. This means I don’t always have the quality pics I need (hence the ‘QUICK Review’), but DEFINITELY have some SUPER helpful info to help you on your way!

What type of paint colour is Natural Tan? Is it warm or cool?

Natural Tan is a WARM beige-inspired paint colour. But while it’s a WARM colour, it’s not as warm as many of the popular beige and tan paint colours on the market.

If you have north-facing light or afternoon eastern/morning western light, you may see Natural Tan lean that touch grayer or flatter looking. However, with south-facing or afternoon western sunshine, Natural Tan offers a passive warmth to an already warm-looking room.

What’s the LRV of Natural Tan?

Natural Tan has an LRV of 65. With this higher than average LRV, Natural Tan is a ‘light’ depth paint colour.

What are the undertones of Natural Tan? 

Natural Tan is VERY neutral and subtle in its look, rarely flashing a green undertone.

What’s the best way to sample paint?

Like with every paint colour, I highly recommend using SAMPLIZE. Samplize is a peel & stick paint sample that you can easily move around your room for over HALF THE COST of traditional sample pots – and they deliver right to your front door!

Would it be a good colour for the exterior of my home? 

With its subtle warmth, Natural Tan could be a nice exterior option, keeping in mind it will look CONSIDERABLY lighter and more washed-out when natural light hits it (due to its higher LRV). I might choose a cleaner white paint colour for the trim to amp up the contrast.

What Benjamin Moore paint colours are the same as or similar to Natural Tan?

Every colour has its own particular look and trust me, there will be NO perfect match – you WILL see shifts in undertones, temperature and depths, but you could check out…

BTW, if you’re thinking of colour matching between brands (ie: getting Benjamin Moore to make a Sherwin Williams paint colour), you might want to read THIS first.

What other paint colours look good with it?

White Sand is a reasonably flexible neutral paint colour and suits a variety of colours, such as some…

  1. Kylie do you always paint the ceilings white? I have open concept floor plan with crown molding through out and plantation shutters. I like the walls & ceiling all accessible beige or natural tan. Didn’t know if it would be to dark.

      While white is definitely the MOST common choice, I’ve done many non-white ceilings. It all depends on the wall colour and the space. Rooms with high or vaulted ceilings often handle a non-white better than low ceilings. White is also better long-term if you’re someone who likes to change things up on the walls as a non-white ceiling will be VERY LIMITING! Long story short, if you like it and it suits your space, have fun with it!

      1. Kylie,

        We are painting our walls natural tan and we have 12 foot ceilings in our main areas. We also have crown molding around the ceiling. If we did not want to paint the ceilings white, what color would you recommend to compliment Natural Tan?

        Thank you

  2. I painted the main area of my home Sherwin Williams Natural Tan. I used Dunn Edwards White Picket Fence for ceilings and trim, which is very similar Sherwin Williams White Snow. I have all northern exposure except for one window upstairs that faces east and I would say that it stays pretty neutral, if I had to choose an undertone other than yellow it would probably be pink, but if so it’s nominal. I’m really happy with my choice.

  3. Hi Kylie,
    I love this color, but I’m wondering if it goes with auburn toned hickory laminate flooring? I can’t seem to find many suggestions for paint online for a north facing room with reddish brown flooring. It’s not super red just a hint of it. Almost mahogany but not quite as red.
    I hope this natural tan color will work for me. 🙂 any suggestions would be appreciated.
    Thank you,
