Grey Paint Colours by Benjamin Moore


Over the past year or so, I was keen on changing the colour palette in our home. After taking an interest in home design, I learned the type of style I was attracted to and what exactly fit our family and home. What I mean by that is I’m the only girl in our household, therefore pink isn’t something I care to accent our home with, but maybe my wardrobe instead. I love a mixture of styles but I feel most comfortable with a neutral colour palette. Neutral is most likely known as a safe zone in the home design department, but if you’re on a tight budget it makes sense to go with neutral for higher priced decor items that will stick around for years to come. I love adding natural elements such as plants, fabric and wood into a space which really makes the environment feel comfortable and inviting. And I’m a sucker for contrast as I love black and charcoal greys next to lighter tones with a little punch of colour — those are the types of interiors I’m always pinning! I wanted to make our home a little more modern with a neutral colour palette but still keep some country charm. The first part of a makeover and most effective way to change up a space is by painting the walls, therefore our entire main level was painted! The kitchen and living room were once two different colours, seen here, and I painted over them using the colour “pure white” by Benjamin Moore. This keeps the room flow uniform. Pure white is extremely light but not quite white, it has a sight grey/blue undertone which gives a bit of contrast next to white and works well with cooler tones and I needed the wall colour to flow with our kitchen cabinets; heres some grey kitchen inspiration from a past post. By mid October, I finished painting our kitchen cabinets in Chelsea Gray by Benjamin Moore. I must say it has really changed our whole main level! Although it’s a little more on the warm side of the grey spectrum, it looks cooler in our kitchen, my guess is because our counter tops and backsplash have brown and cream undertones throughout. Chelsea Gray feels like a true grey!
Since majority of our home interior is painted in a grey hues, I thought it was only necessary to share some of my favourite grey paint colours and I’ve literally went over every grey shade in the Benjamin Moore fan deck!
