Benjamin Moore’s Best Selling Grays

I’m fairly certain I have some sort of OCD when it comes to paint colors.  My Color Inspiration Pinterest board certainly supports my theory – I just can’t get enough!  I obviously need another hobby.  However, since it is something I enjoy and I know many of you find useful when it comes to selecting colors in your home, I figured I would share Benjamin Moore’s best selling grays, with some photo inspiration to go along with it.

Edgecomb Gray

Such a timeless classic.  Light, bright and fresh.

Coventry Gray

A lovely complimentary color to Edgecomb Gray, Coventry Gray is a lovely mid-tone gray that works as a great neutral.  The perfect backdrop for adding pops of color as well.

Revere Pewter

You all know how much I love Revere Pewter.  I did an entire Color Spotlight at The Creativity Exchange on this color, I love it so much.  It’s so incredibly versatile, and a color that can do no wrong in my opinion.  I love it so much, that I’ve added it to my own home and used it in my family room here, and several of Benjamin Moore’s Best Selling Grays were on my wall when I was going through my paint picking process here.

You can see that choosing paint colors is serious business in my house, and again, I am reminded that colors change with the light and time of day.  Some colors that I thought I would love, just didn’t work, while others caught my eye unexpectedly.

Ashen Tan

This color is more in the beige color family than gray, if you as me, but it works beautifully in this bathroom where the shower tile seems to have a greige hue.

Stonington Gray

A lovely, light gray, Stonington Gray is another fresh looking gray that appears to work well in almost any room.

In this kitchen, it’s on the walls and on the island.  Beautiful!

Barren Plain

Barren Plain is new on my radar.  It lends itself to a clean, classic, elegant look, and I love how it works with the beige tones in the flooring of this kitchen.

Classic Gray

Classic Gray is just a whisper of gray.  Just enough gray to give some contrast against the white trim, giving a hint of color and warmth.  So lovely.

Gray Owl

Gray Owl is a well-loved, classic gray that seems to work everywhere.  I love it in this laundry room – tranquil and timeless.

What do you think of these grays?  I’m a huge fan of Benjamin Moore paint and their colors, for that matter.  There were certainly some on the list that were off my radar, along with some that are tried and true favorites.  Definitely going to add some of these to my color files… What do you think of Benjamin Moore’s Best Selling Grays?  Do you have any of them in your home?

    Benjamin Moore’s Barren Plain covers every wall in our two story in Jacksonville, FL. It is the most beautiful shade of gray we were able to decide on after applying 6 sample shades of gray in various rooms throughout. It amazes how it changes in intensity as the day moves on in our house which is constantly sun-filled.

    Your pic of Edgecomb Gray is funny it’s so off. It reads here yellow and green. Edgecomb acually is a warm gray with pink in it.
    This is why I tell my clients to stay off the internet. But it does bring me work to fix it.

      The photos are via Houzz, and yes, things definitely look different in person than they do online! Thus the need for lots of paint samples when I paint rooms in my home. 🙂

    Just not a fan of gray at all, sorry. Love the taupes though. What do you recommend in this family for a two story foyer going in to the family room/kitchen in an open transitional floor plan? Thx!

      I’m a big fan of Revere Pewter if you’re looking for something that is a color chameleon and plays well with others. I’ve never been disappointed with it!
