Benjamin Moore Shaker Beige ~ Favorite Paint Color


Hello, friends! It’s been a few weeks since I posted a favorite color, but today I’m sharing our all-time most popular neutral at the paint shop, Benjamin Moore Shaker Beige HC-45.

It’s a mid-tone neutral that goes with just about any color. It’s not too gray, not too yellow, not too pink, but more like coffee with cream. At least that’s what my coffee looks like each morning, but I probably have as much cream as coffee in my cup!

Isn’t this a beautiful kitchen? I love the way the accent colors harmonize with the Shaker Beige in this room. I could definitely sip on my coffee with cream each morning here!

The trim is painted in Benjamin Moore French Canvas.

Another great kitchen here with Shaker Beige on the walls. It looks nice with the white cabinets, black counters and wood floors. And the lights over the island and the dark teal cabinet on the far wall are all gorgeous.

The lighting in this photo and the crisp white trim make the Shaker Beige look darker in this photo. It complements the wood tones, oranges, and grays beautifully.

This modern dining room looks stunning with the artwork, lighting, fireplace, and pops of color on the mantel. The Shaker Beige walls are the perfect backdrop for all of it.

Here’s a cozy family room with Shaker Beige walls and dark brown furniture. Although I usually use more accent colors in rooms, I love the serenity of all the neutral shades in here. What do you think…too neutral or just right?

Another family room here that looks so comfortable. The Shaker Beige walls perfectly complement the stone fireplace and neutral decor. Any color throw pillows or a colorful area rug could be added for a pop of color.

Do you like Shaker Beige? Have you used it before? As I stated earlier, it’s the most popular wall color for us over the past 20 years or so. It’s the perfect warm neutral.

  1. I have Shaker Beige with Linen White trim in my living room, which is adjacent to the kitchen in my townhome, with only a partial wall (with a cutout, so that you can see through) between them. I am planning to paint my kitchen soon and add crown molding. What do you think about Smokey Taupe for the walls, Super White for the ceiling/crown, and Edgecomb Gray for the cabinets? Too much beige/greige?

  2. What are your thought of this color with a more cream off white trim vs. bright white. I want to brighten the room from the more darker tan it is but I don't want the new color to blend in with the trim…I still want trim to stand out. What do you think?
