The Biltmore, plywood & beige

We finally went to the Biltmore. It was CJSF's 5th birthday party: a few bands & DJs. Unfortunately, I was pretty tired from a long week, so after the third act, I fell asleep, so we went home. It was nice to have such a short commute: I was in bed by 12:30.

Today we went to Home Despot, again. We've been there nearly every day since we moved into the house. We scored an amazing deal on a 3'x8' piece of sanded plywood to build a shelf for the microwave. $5! We took advantage of their paint sale to load up on low-VOC paints to fix up the suite downstairs. We'll get the paint tinted later, probably to a neutral beige colour. The question is, which beige? These two are in different colour 'families' but seem so similar that it's hard to understand why they even have different names...

I vote for "inheritance". They look quite a bit different on my monitor, one is yellowy and one is browny. Paul wants to paint out our bedroom that shade too.

I too vote for inheritance. And at least it won't be plain white walls that sooo many places have out there.

I'm trying to figure out what colour to do my bedroom. I want red, but not too sure what shade. I want a rich colour, but not too dark. And it has to go with my blanket that Terry got us from India. Any suggestions?
