    You can look online at several paint manufacturer websites that have color chips, but always check in person!!! I have found that sometimes they vary greatly from computer to real life. Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams, Ralph Lauren, and Glidden all offer online options, I believe. You can even do a virtual "test run" in a room to see what it would look like, or upload a photo of your space and try it out that way, as well!

    It really is best to pick the paint chips out in the store as many are going to give advice on color,however in reality it will most likely not be what you really are looking for.Unfortunately the website on color inspirations are not the exact color.Once you think you have decided on a color it is always best to buy samples and try them in the home with natural lighting. What looks well in the store may look totally different in the home. Been there done that.

    I would start with a paint chip strip ½ way between the beige cream you mention and pure white. Then I would choose 2 or 3 between the starting point and the white. and tape them on your wall. That way you will see which ones are too beige or cold it different lights. I personally have had more luck with Sherwin Williams for an all-season warm creamy white.
