    I would say beige, for you can use accents of colorful vases and other items, even lampshades to add beautiful colors, as well as drapes. This way, you can change the accents as you desire. Even, you can add a hand towel, on the arms of a chair, to add more color, for this is changeable too. Best wishes, Judy.

    Sherwin Williams has a brew that I only have the mixture numbers of and not a paint named color. I love it. It isn't stark white nor is it too yellow. Just a soft slight 'off white'. The manager told me it was very popular so if anyone is interested, I can list the 4 'ingredients'. It covers good because the previous owners evidently liked navy and gray. Yes, they were military; AF.

      OK, when I pushed 'send' all the numbers shifted. The Y1 Yellow 1 goes under the 32, skip 64 and a 1 (another Y1 Yellow) under the 128.
      Y3-Deep Gold goes 3 under the 32, skip 64 and 1 goes under the 128. My guess is that these small numbers are amounts of ounce additions.
      A competent Sherwin Williams tech will know exactly what to do and can probably give you a color name to correspond.
      And if you get the name, send it to me.

    CCExColorant oz 32 64 128
    Y1-Yellow - 1 - 1
    Y3-Deep Gold - 3 - 1
    BTW it was put in a base of extra white. Also, there are different 'grades'. Do not get the 'primer and paint in one'. It's very thick and difficult to get to flow. Get the one that actually is less expensive. I needed the thick stuff to cover the navy paint. I really like it (and that's after a year of living with it) It seems to go with any colors you put with it. Don't gasp when you first begin applying. It is NOT yellow. It dries to a very soft cream and not that awful contractors white.
