Benjamin Moore – Muslin Colour Review
As a Certified True Colour Expert and an award-winning interior design professional, I’ve worked with many homeowners on various residential design projects.
I want to give you the confidence to make educated decisions about your own paint choices. Let’s do this!
Beiges may come and go but they never seem to go far.
Muslin is a classic neutral and the slight pink undertone gives it a little more depth than a true off-white.
Muslin may look different in your space depending on the lighting and what other decorative elements you pair with it in your interior decorating project.
To see the undertone more clearly let’s see the comparisons.
Natual Linen CC-90 & Brandy Cream CC-60
Muslin’s pink undertone is more evident when you compare it with similar shades.
Natural linen leans slightly more green and Brandy Cream pink when you see all three of these colours together.
Best Whites To Pair With Muslin
Cloud White CC-40 By Benjamin Moore
Cloud White is a nice creamy white to use on trim and ceilings.
White Dove OC-17 By Benjamin Moore
I love White Dove and definitely would recommend it as one of the top whites to pair with Muslin.
It’s slightly softer than Cloud White but still not overly bright.
White Dove is hugely popular and was one of my first colour reviews.
You can see the undertone, comparisons and 10 complementary colours in my White Dove Perfect Colour Palette.
Simply White OC-117 By Benjamin Moore
This one is the brightest of the three whites here. It would look fantastic if you have decor elements that are crisper in colour as opposed to creamy or muted.
The differences in the three whites are made more clear from the comparison below.
If you are a regular to my colour reviews you will know I tend to recommend from a group of about 10 white paint colours.
These are my best whites for trim and ceilings.
There’s no need to sift through 1000 different shades of white to find the best one!
I can assure you that the best colour for your project already exists, you just need to know 5 Steps on how to choose the right paint colour the first time.
Fabulous Colour Combinations
Muslin with Wickham Gray, Van Deusen Blue & Ranchwood
Wickham Gray HC-171 By Benjamin Moore
Wickham Gray is a lovely muted blue-green gray that works wonderfully with Muslin.
See it here in a local project I worked on.
You can also check out my Wickham Gray Perfect Colour Palette to see 10 more beautiful colours from Benjamin Moore that pair wonderfully with this gentle gray.
Van Deusen Blue HC-156 By Benjamin Moore
Van Deusen Blue is one of my favourites from Benjamin Moore. That and Hale Navy are standouts for sure.
Hale Navy has been a popular blue for some time and one I have used with great results.
See how beautiful looks in this clients’ home, paired with White Dove on the ceiling and trim.
Ranchwood CC-500 By Benjamin Moore
And finally, we finish with Ranchwood. A rich taupe colour that brings the right amount of contrast with Muslin.
Benjamin Moore – Muslin: Colour Palette Inspiration
Often I find my inspiration for a decorating project from fabrics, area rugs or even pieces of art sometimes.
Look how great this palette looks with the fabric below.
The idea here is to build your decor, furnishing and paint around this complete look.
It does not mean you need to use all four of these paint colours throughout your room.
Imagine a beautiful deep blue sofa paired with some gorgeous pillows in the fabric shown!
Walls painted Muslin, ceilings and trim White Dove and some accents in Wickham Gray and Ranchwood.
How stunning would that room look?!!
Here’s another look that’s a little more playful and fun.
The deep blues in the leopard-style fabric offers another incredible look with these four colours.
And remember in my Perfect Colour Palette for Muslin there are 10 more colours to mix and match with for your home décor.
Just think of the many gorgeous colour combinations and palettes you could create!

Such great comparisons! And the blues really set off this color. Could you share the name of the cheetah fabric, please? It works on all levels.
Claire Jefford| 8 September 2021
Hi Cindy! I’m not sure if it’s still current, but it’s a Duralee fabric, pattern #DP61588 Colour 563 Lapis. Thanks for reading my blog!!

Thank you! Love your posts!

Hi Cindy. Love your color palettes! Have you done a color review on BM 1030 Brandy Cream as well?
Claire Jefford| 27 January 2022
Hi Pam. I have not done a colour review on Brandy Cream. I have that colour in a large painted board, but not to hand at the moment. It looks peachy with either a orange undertone or pink undertone.
Kim| 11 January 2022
Thank you for this video and blog on Muslin! Would you recommend Muslin as the main colour in an open concept home? We’re trying to give our home, which is in the Tuscan trend, a more updated paint colour from our current deeper beiges. We have pink beige porcelain tile that mimics travertine and deep cherry wood floors. Would love to hear your thoughts!
Claire Jefford| 27 January 2022
Muslin is a nice warm colour, so not too stark to work with a Tuscan palette. But always be sure to check the paint colours you are considering with your fixed elements – counters, tiles, flooring, etc.
Donna| 7 February 2023
I have a dilemma. I still have light oak molding and chair rail. I am driving myself crazy trying to figure out two colors , one for top and one for the bottom. Torn between Muslim , creamy beige, Navajo white, Manchester tan…so many to choose from.
What is your opinion…….help
