Where can I buy an Ikea paint color?

I'm looking for a paint color used on one of the room displays and I'm hoping someone can help me find out how to purchase it.

The plaque on the wall identifies it as NCSS1502 B50G. I was told in the store that it was a universal code that could be used to mix the paint. I've gone to Lowe's and Home Depot, but they could find nothing using that paint number.

Does anyone have a suggestion?

Thank you for your time.

Re: Where can I buy an Ikea paint color?

This is an interesting question. I did some googling and found this:
Colors
and another:
K2071 (Corfu) | Peter Benson Plywood Ltd
I seemed to find more links with a space between the S's. Are these anywhere close to the color?

Welcome to IKEAFans!

Re: Where can I buy an Ikea paint color?

Thank you Gloria!! I believe the second color you found just might be it! You must be a much better Googler than I am, because I found nothing when I tried it.

I really appreciate your help!

Re: Where can I buy an Ikea paint color?

It looks like it's called an NCS Colour Code and it's European.
I found this converter:
i2 STUDIOS | Architecture Visualisation
which will take the NCS code and translate it into RGB values.
Then you could take it to:
EasyRGB - The inimitable RGB and COLOR search engine!
enter the RGB values and find a commercial (North American) paint color that's close.
Check out a sample in your home's lighting before making a final decision, but I think that will point you in the right direction.

Thanks for the compliment. This is fun and I found some new color tools to play with.

Take the piece of IKEA Furniture to Home Depot and they will match the color. It is SO SO EASY! I just got done painting a crib and the color is PERFECT. Any paint store can match the color.

Re: Where can I buy an Ikea paint color?

IKEA (in the US anyway) uses Benjamin Moore paints exclusively, so once you are able to convert, you can find the exact paint.

I'm curious what store uses the NCS system to communicate paint color... I'm in the design department at an IKEA store, and thought it was standard to communicate the BM color. Is the store in the States?

Re: Where can I buy an Ikea paint color?

When I called back to my local store, I was told there was no way to know what color they used for the showroom!
