Sherwin Williams’ Chamois SW 6131 is a light brown in the Yellow color family. I chose this color for today’s Spotlight because it reminds me of a rich, delicious caramel.

If you like cognac leather furniture, I think you’ll really like Chamois!

Consider using this tan paint color in a home library or den, or perhaps in your home office, paired with wood elements and white for contrast and depth.

Coordinating colors include:

  • Navajo White
  • Kilim Beige
  • Dried Thyme

It has a LRV of 26, meaning it absorbs more light than it reflects.

How Can I Get a Sample?

The best way to try out Sherwin Williams paint colors is to order a 12”x12” peel-and-stick sample from Samplize.

A few things I love about these true color samples:

  1. You can easily move them around from room to room.
  2. They cost MUCH less than traditional sample pots, brushes/rollers, and foam boards.
  3. They are more environmentally friendly.

Plus, they’re typically delivered in just 1-3 business days, so you don’t have to add one more errand to your list (and then go back again and again when you don’t like how they look in your space). 

What is a Color Spotlight?

Every day this month, I’m highlighting a different paint color for my readers — mainly colors I haven’t really talked about before on the blog — as a fun little project.

They’re super quick blurbs that you can read in less than five minutes (NOT long, drawn out color reviews).

This will not only expose you to a variety of fun hues you might not have considered, but it’ll also give me fresh ideas for future blog posts.

Happy decorating!
