Our Favorite Grays

As far as interior paint colors go, grays are about as hot as it gets these days.

Many of our clients opt for gray when selecting paint colors and we certainly understand why. Gray allows you to maintain a neutral base but with a bit of character. Also, lighter cabinets and counter tops will really stand out against gray walls as opposed to white or beige.

If you’ve spent any time at all researching grays. you know that the options are limitless. Some have green tones while others have purple or blue tones. Staring at all the samples at the paint store is enough to make your eyes cross.


Look no further! We’re breaking down our FIVE (current) favorite grays for you that we’ve used in recent projects. Take a look:

Glidden- Universal Grey (CN61)

2015-07-25 12.07.12

With hints of taupe and beige, Universal Grey is, well, universal. If all else fails, go with this color for neutral walls with some warmth.

Sherwin Williams- Drift of Mist (SW9166)


Drift of Mist looks like a true gray to us. Cool and clean and perfect in any room. And how perfect is this kitchen? One of our very favorites to date.

Sherwin Williams- Sea Salt (SW6204)


Sea Salt is our go-to bathroom color. It definitely has strong green undertones, but it goes well with so many different materials and makes any bathroom feel like a luxurious spa.

Sherwin Williams- Rhinestone (SW7656)


Rhinestone is another classic gray that is crisp and neutral while being warm and inviting.

Sherwin Williams- Gray Screen (SW7071)


Gray Screen provides a hint of blue, which is definitely drawn out by the navy penny tiles in this bathroom. This color is great for bathrooms and would even be darling for a kid’s room.

So there you have our current favorite Grays. Do you have a go-to gray?
