What is Taupe?

Classic taupe paint colors are a combination of brown and gray. 

Taupe ranges from the color of a tan trench coat to that of fresh mushrooms. 

As with any paint color, undertones and lighting conditions are factors as to whether your chosen taupe will skew warm or cool.


Ashley Gray HC-87

Use the same paint color on multiple surfaces for a uniform, uninterrupted design.

Here, Ashley Gray HC-87, a rich taupe, is used in different sheens—matte on walls, satin on trim and cabinets— to create subtle contrast in this home office.

Sparrow AF-720

Deep taupes create cozy enclaves, as seen in this welcoming living room corner. 

Homeowners love snuggling up surrounded by Sparrow AF-720, another great color from our Affinity® collection.


Indian River 985

A wide range of colors look great with taupe, making it a super versatile color choice.

Both Silver Half Dollar 2121-40 and Old Pickup Blue 2054-60 add a little fun to this neutral-hued kitchen which includes taupe Indian River 985 on the kitchen island, and slightly cool Decorator's White OC-149 on trim.

Weimaraner AF-155

If you love earthy, warm colors, you’ll love Weimaraner AF-155, a deep taupe from our Affinity® collection.

Paired here with warm Ballet White OC-9 on floors and former Color of the Year Simply White OC-117 on trim—the vibe is sophisticated yet relaxing.


Shaker Beige HC-45

Taupe offers a calming paint color choice for your office nook, made that much better by streaming daylight through a nearby window.

Shaker Beige HC-45, a warm taupe, shown here in matte finish, contributes to a serene work environment.


Fresh, clean trim comes via Dove Wing OC-18 from the Benjamin Moore Off-White collection .

Driftwood 2107-40

Taupe paint colors beautifully complement other neutrals.

Here, an accent wall in beige-pink Soft Satin 2164-60 creates a striking yet subtle color flow from a Driftwood 2107-40-painted room to the hallway beyond.

Design tip: Use mirrors to create an intriguing color dimension to any space.
