Trying to find a paint colour similar to the one in the photo ... Can anyone recommend? It's more grey but in certain lights looks taupe.

I like Dulux 'Muddy Puddle' but it might be a bit lighter than that.

That's meant to be Dulux crispy crumble!

I think muddy puddle might be too brown? Will check out the others now... Thank you!

Just painted one bedroom with Dulux Perfectly taupe (one wall) and Dulux Just walnut (the rest).

Really like perfectly taupe but think it may be too light -same as elephants breath.

Hi zip
Have you looked at Hardwick White by Farrow and Ball
It does vary according to the light in the room so you would probably be best with s sample

Op not zip!!!

OP if anything for me Perfectly taupe is a bit too darkish but everyone's to their own. Good luck!

I was trying to find Kelly Hoppen's range of paint (produced by Graham and Brown), after all she is the "Queen of Taupe".
I could only find available from House of Fraser here.
