Considering that Swiss Coffee is a popular shade that people constantly search for, it is no surprise that many are looking for such a variation at the renowned paint manufacturer Sherwin-Williams. Let’s make it clear! The Swiss Coffee paint color most people usually refer to is the one from Benjamin Moore. To be precise – Swiss Coffee OC-45. Still, there is another Swiss Coffee at Behr, which is not that far from the essence of the previous shade. Either way, they both are warm off-white shades with a slight creamy base and delicate beige notes that feel exceptionally soft. Besides that, they are versatile and work with almost any style, offering a refined sense of comfort and enriching the space with a calming feel of sleek contemporaneity.
Back to Sherwin-Williams. Unfortunately, this manufacturer does not have a shade named like this, although the range of alternatives it has to offer that meets all the mentioned standards will make you forget about the name and focus on the inner beauty of the available options that resonate with the nature of Swiss Coffee from Benjamin Moore since we stick to this one as a reference. The list of alternative paint colors offers a quite similar effect, with some even bringing something new for an updated perspective on the all-time favorite Swiss Coffee.
An off-white shade with creamy notes and a neutral base that prevents the color from reaching a yellow level. In contrast with Swiss Coffee, it may feel slightly more intense, although it depends on the lighting. Generally speaking, they look very similar, which brings a no less similar effect on the interior.
As with Swiss Coffee, Alabaster suits any room and works outstandingly for the house exterior. It perfectly pairs with other neutrals to preserve the monochromatic approach for a contemporary feel. Still, it is a no less perfect background for the boldest accents and combines harmoniously with wood texture.
Impressively identical shade to Swiss Coffee, which is enough to state that everything the latter replicates also can be said about Greek Villa. We cannot help but notice the same refinement produced by the soft notes of beige.
Keeping pace with Swiss Coffee, the alternative from SW works as perfectly for any room and style, combining with many shades and textures for a similar soft effect. Greek Villa does not cease to impress with its suitability within modern interiors and exteriors, from the living room walls to the kitchen cabinets and the front door.
Classic Light Buff SW 0050
Standout alternative to Swiss Coffee with slightly warmer notes, which are not that visible. As for the rest, a balanced off-white with creamy scents and subtle beige notes – just like its counterpart. Particular lighting conditions would definitely cool down the warmer hint and make this paint color identical to the variation from BM.
All design solutions peculiar to Swiss Coffee go for Classic Light Buff unless you want to emphasize the slightly warmer feature, which requires more wood texture. The result is quite the same, although it may feel a bit more inviting.
Cotton SW 9581
Again an identical variation and only the slightly higher LRV of this particular shade would distinguish between them. As with Swiss Coffee, this off-white contains just the right amount of warmth.
As you have probably guessed, Cotton behaves the same way as Swiss Coffee when it comes to interior and exterior design. Start with it as a background and go on with any style direction, applying any design solution, while the warm shade of white will add the right amount of comfort. One should note that particular conditions may bring a cooler appearance to this paint color, which is worth giving a try.
Westhighland White SW 7566
Although with a higher LRV, Westhighland White is almost the same as Swiss Coffee. It is no less soft, warm, and welcoming. The creamy base is just another reason to fall in love with this shade as well.
What about its integration? Well, the same design solutions that work for Swiss Coffee also go for this standout alternative. An appropriate play with lighting undertones and neighboring colors may bring a slightly different effect unless this is not what you are looking for.
Cold Foam SW 9504
The further we go, the more identical the shades appear to be. Again, the slightly higher LRV is the one to make a difference, while the appearance is the same in both cases. Cold Foam has it all – the neutral base, creamy notes, slight beige hint, and the irreplaceable sofft effect.
Do their integrations into the interior and exterior go hand in hand? You can safely use the alternative from SW for any design solution that seems appropriate for Swiss Coffee.

Not far from Swiss Coffee, this variation feels slightly warmer. The same neutral base, creamy hint, and exquisite softness are also part of this paint color. If a bit warmer effect feels closer to you, don’t hesitate to go with this particular shade.
If you want to preserve the slightly warmer effect, consider pairing Dover White with wood texture so that it can reveal its softest side. Still, if a more neutral Swiss Coffee look appeals to you, go safely with cool matching colors to balance the environment.
Whitetail SW 7103
Very close to Swiss Coffee, yet still a bit lighter and slightly warmer. Particular lighting conditions may bring a variation that perfectly replicates the inner beauty of the warm off-white from BM while appropriately chosen neighboring colors preserve the original sense of warmth this shade hides.
The impressive flexibility of this paint color that can take any direction opens a wide range of possibilities, from the simplest to the boldest solution. Either way, Whitetail goes as a background and fabulously manages to emphasize even the most neutrally colored elements.
