When clients are looking for a light cool gray, I always review Benjamin Moore's Gray Owl with them. A favorite Benjamin Moore Color with a very light tone.
Gray Owl from Benjamin Moore is a popular paint color. That's why I have decided to highlight it today. It isn't really one of my go-to colors, but many clients ask me about it so I feel it's an important one to cover.
This is a very pretty color, but it does change based on what it is paired with and the light in the room. It is a cool gray green. Here it looks beautiful on the cabinets. Notice the marble is a gray blue but it still blends wonderfully with the space. The natural elements of the lighting and stools blend very well.
Here is another example of the color in a bedroom from House Beautiful. The light wood tones are soft and pair nicely with the gray owl. This is a very neutral palette as well, with out a lot of color but you can see the space still shines. The color also looks warmer in this photo. Having a lot of light is key for this color as well.
Here you see Gray Owl in its true color. An almost touch of mint or blue in the gray- very light and calming. I love these warm wood floors in this room but it's the white ceiling that really pops off the gray. The light in the room bounces around and is a great color for this space. Again, there are not a lot of other colors in the room.
One suggestion I always give my clients is that if a color is reading funny in a particular room, try changing the light. I suggest using this cree bulb in daylight. It doesn't have a yellow or pink color so your getting a nice true paint color in your home. You can purchase these on Amazon via my affiliate link if you like. https://amzn.to/2OeiR8T
