Thanks for your question Catcope,

I used Home Depot Project Color app to answer your question.

I saved the online image, Emailed it to my phone, and saved it in images.

When I executed the "Match It" function on the app, I opened the image and clicked the brown field.

The app identified one Behr and one Ralph Lauren as the most similar colors:

Sturdy Brown MQ2-48

Burlap RL-1238

Because the image is photographically lit and not an actual color sample, you can move the cursor around and it will identify other colors as most similar.

Basically, this and other similar tools are starting points which will get you in a ballpark of colors.

Use available paper samples to narrow your selection and then purchase half-pint samples once you narrow it down to several.

Actual paint samples on the wall are very important when selecting colors because the lighting in your home will make a difference in how your colors appear.

When done, please take time to share your success by posting images on The Community.

Hope this helps,

Pat InPaint
