Buying online is a challenge because there’s no way to know what a color looks like in real life.


The color experts here at The Land of Color have solved that problem for you. Today we’re analyzing Sunbrella’s Cheetah Taupe.

If you want to know what the colors look like in real life, just go to your local paint stores and grab chips of the following colors:
Shitake SW 9173 by Sherwin-Williams
Foothills Sw 7514 by Sherwin-Williams
Ashley Gray HC-87 by Benjamin Moore

Clicking on the paint color links will take you to The Colorography Lab where you can get all the details about each color’s important attributes.
