    I've spent hours and hours trying to find a true 'sand' coloured emulsion but I'm really struggling. Everything I've found is either too caramel, or yellow. I'm just after a proper beigey sand colour that isn't too dark.

    Thanks in advance

    B&Q do a sand emulsion, also Crown did do an Egyptian sand, you could take a look at those, or get the colour mixed.

    Thanks for this, we looked at the Crown Egyptian Sand but it is a really peachy colour. Is the Sand B&Q own brand?

    Thanks

    I am not sure to be honest, your best bet would be to take a look in the store.

    Laura Ashley used to do an emulsion called Sand. Might be worth checking if they still do.

    The problem is that there are lots of different kinds of sand. Are you thinking of Blackpool beach, the Bahamas, Whitehaven Beach in Oz, or what?
