Other than white, the only paint colors in our house currently are shades of gray. If you remember my first fail in gray paint, you know how much I toiled over the right shades for each room. I’ve had a number of people over the past year ask about the colors we chose, so today I wanted to sum up our picks for gray paint.
Office and Lounge Space – Ozark Shadows from Benjamin Moore // For the upstairs office, we wanted a light smokey gray. Something soft, but not too feminine. After the original color was a disaster, Ozark Shadows ended up being perfect. It leans a little warm, but in my opinion reads as very neutral.
Dining Room – Deep Space from Benjamin Moore // The dining room was the very first room we painted. We wanted a dark chalkboard black, and it didn’t turn out quite as I envisioned it, but we love it! It certainly leans cool, almost a dark slate blue. Color looks fabulous and vibrant against it. Make sure you use it in a room with a decent amount of natural light.
Master Bedroom – Seal from Martha Stewart Living // After I fell in love with the dining room, I decided I wanted a dark cave-like bedroom. I wanted a warmer shade of brown though, so we tried Seal from Martha Stewart Living. When I started putting it on the wall I thought it was going to be too brown, but finish and dried it’s one of my favorite rooms in the house.
I hope that helps! Gray can be a a touchy “color”. Please add your picks in the comments if you have used gray paint in your home.
