BENJAMIN MOORE TOPEKA TAUPE 1463 and BRIDE TO BE 1009:"Speaking as a brunette (albeit a highlighted one), I think we look better in rooms that reflect our dark and mysterious nature. This is a John Singer Sargent brown with a bit of gray in it, which makes it more interesting. He loved using dark backgrounds in his portraits. A bedroom in this color would be soothing, restful, and sexy. Very important -- for contrast, I'd use this elusive shell pink on the ceiling and trim." -MADELINE STUART
