With silver-coating on the inside that would be awesome. Or a very shiny black coating, maybe?

I asked for pedantry, and I got pedanted.

I think what we need is adverbs

Seemingly Red
Plantably Orange
Zeroic Yellow
Handily Green
Questionably Purple
Xenophobically White
Conoptical Black
Hopelessly Gray
Customarily Beige

That worked when it was 'custom beige' but customary and custom have kind of the opposite meanings, despite I dare say having the same word roots. The latter suggests its by user choice, and therefore quite liable to being unique or at least rare, but the former suggests your neighbours* will have the same colour unit as you, because it basically mean by tradition.

* Neighbours in this case might be people in your street, people in your village, your city, your state, your country your geological plate or your current planet.

For some reason those both mean the same, the former possibly "customer"-like too, but that is a stretch

The latter, can also be written "custumal".

Which begs the question, what is the "made custom/special" adverb Customizingly, customatedly, unique, I don't know.

Customized?

"Custom beige" has me sold.

You need to reread the original posts. It's "customarily beige" not "customary beige".
True, that was lazy of me. However, I'm under the opinion that one of those words is derived from the other. One is an adjective and the other is an adverb I think, but I'll leave it to you as to which is which. On the other hand, 'custom' and words like 'customize' have pretty much the opposite meaning, as I was trying to say.

Thinking of international shipments, which colour name will clear customs the easiest ;op ?

Sure they both have the same derivation but they still carry opposite implications in this context.

One implies "This unit is the customary beige"
the other implies "These units are customarily beige, but this one is special"
