    Hi Guys,

    I'm just wondering if anyone can help me understand what colour this render is? (images attached)

    I know this will differ from computer monitor to monitor, but a guess is welcomed. I like this European/Tuscan look, usually this render is complimented with white framed windows as well.

    If you can pin-point down to the dulux or taubmans website colour selection, that would be great too.

    Any help/guess would be appreciated - thanks!

    Cut a section of the wall out and take to the paint shop they can colour match it

    Thanks for that. You're not referring to the physical wall of this house are you? Not even my home - lol. I actually knocked on this persons door to ask but unfortunately they weren't home.

    Anyways, if you had to guess Bob?

    Even better if it's someone else's house! You don't have to fix it :p

    Knocking is a good idea otherwise one of the colour genius here will be able to get close.
    Otherwise a paint shop could help from those photo's

    That's the thing, I suck at comparing the colour lol. It looks like a yellow, brown, white mix. Not sure..

    What category would you think it would fit best? The yellows?

    No, I think more whites and yellows - in the range below.

    I think best bet, take it to a paint guy, he will probably know exactly.

    I've painted my internal walls Grand Piano Half and they are very light compared to that image of the house you are trying to colour match.

    Please don't get me started on internal walls! Selecting a white is near impossible. From what I've read, the more sunlight areas of the home, you are to use a cooler white. Side skirts preferably to be a whiter colour than the walls and ceilings a different colour too.

    Darker rooms are to have a warmer white, especially if it's the bedroom?

    Regarding the external paint, I think I want to settle for a light grey / beige colour. Is it true that for external paint, you are to go 3 or 4 shades darker than what you select because the sunlight will make it lighter?

    Hi Chee,
    I was looking at similar colours on some paint charts last night as I too like this sort of tone. The colour would be in the Neutrals, along with the whites, beige and stone colours.
    The colour shown in the photo looks similar to British Paints Twisted Rope, Taubmans Dovetail and Valspar Truffle Butter or Valspar High and Dry (think Valspar is stocked by Masters - can't remember where I got these colour chips) Dulux would also have colours like this.
