No. Beige is very pale and carries a greener cast on the brown scale, whereas tan carries more red.

Nope. They are definitely not the same color. Beige is almost white. Tan is almost brown. That's my definition.

Tan has more yellow. (Think of the old, light brown M&M's or caramel)
Beige has a pink blush to it.

I agree with you.

They are not the same. Tan is several shades darker, than beige. :tapedshut: regarding the makeup of each color.

Nope. Tan is darker with all sorts of ranges from warm to cool while beige is more creamy and again can be warm or cool.

I would say:

white
off-white/cream
ecru < more beige or can have yellow undertone >
beige < gold to neutral ------same tone------- more taupeish > linen
beige can also be called "sand"
tan (more golden/caramel)
