What colors coordinate with or complement SW 6142 Macadamia? Sherwin Williams Macadamia is a warm deep beige or toast shade that easily adapts to most farmhouse, rustic, country or traditional home decor styles.
Macadamia has just enough warmth or red in it to blend in with other warm colors but it’s not overly gold or yellow so you can still use it with grays or other neutrals.
SW 6142 is a Pottery Barn Fall/Winter 2021 color but it’s not likely to go out of style because it resists being considered trendy. I’ve been using it for years.
When you need a warm neutral that won’t go out of style and pairs well with so many other colors, Macadamia is an easy choice.

Looking for coordinating colors to use with Macadamia? I’m going to suggest specific colors that go with SW 6142, but honestly this color could work with lots of reds, blues, greens, grays and warm neutrals. It’s that adaptable and easy to use.
SW 6142 can be used on your walls or cabinets. I suggest using a semi gloss or gloss finish on cabinets and trim, with satin or velvet finish on walls. I’m not a fan of matte finishes even though they’re usually less expensive.
A flat or matte finish can be a pain to keep clean because it shows every single fingerprint and mark. Do yourself a favor and pick a finish with some sheen like Satin. It’s easier to clean plus it lets light bounce and reflect around the room. Win!
Let’s keep it really simple. Here’s a selection of colors that go with SW 6142 Macadamia and as always I like to include a white or cream for trim and doors. Using a white or cream in your color palette helps colors like Macadamia feel fresh and clean. Without it they can appear dark, drab and boring. Its essential to always use a little white between a color like SW 6142 and reds, blues, greens and neutrals.
SW 7103 Whitetail is my recommendation for a warm white that coordinates well with SW 6142 and any other accent color you choose. Whitetail is also part of my Denim color palette.
