Favorite Paint Color ~ Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray

Hello, friends! Happy Hues-day!  Each week (on Tuesday) a favorite paint color is featured here.  This week the color is Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray.

It's a great neutral with subtle, warm gray tones.  It would be a wonderful complement to almost any color.

Isn't this hallway from Kristi at Making it in the Mountains just so pretty! I love the Edgecomb Gray as a subtle backdrop to all her decor.

This nook is one of the spaces in the designer showhouse done by the alumnae of the O'More College of Design near Nashville.  They chose Edgecomb Gray as the wall color and it looks gorgeous with the dark floors and the grays and greens that were used as accent colors.  It would be the perfect place to plop down for a while and catch up on your reading or take a little snooze.

In this living room, Edgecomb Gray is actually the color that was used on the trim work and bookcases.  It's a nice complement to the lavender wall color, but not a stark, sterile white.

I love the open floor plan and the clean crisp feeling of this space.  Those wood floors add just the right amount of warmth to the room.  

This space is an extension of the previous photo.  The bright coral rug and yellow pillows really liven up the space.  The Edgecomb Gray on the walls is the perfect backdrop for all of it.

As pretty as this space is, I would personally add a little more color in it.  Maybe an area rug or some colorful table linens, or even a different fabric on the chairs.  

What about you?  Would you want more color or is all neutral something you would like in a room?

Edgecomb Gray is a nice color for exteriors as well.  The white trim on this house makes the siding pop.  And the dark stain on the deck really stands out against the lighter colors on the house and trim.  I'd love to have a large front porch like this one!

So what do you think of Edgecomb Gray?  Have you used it before or would you use it in one of your rooms?  

These books might help you in your color selections, as well.

    I'm not much of a person for gray paint even though gray seems to be really in right now. I do like this Edgecomb gray because it is a warm gray. I think I will give it a try. Thanks!

    1. I'm the same way. But gray has really started to appeal to me over the last year or so. Let me know if you use it and how it turns out! Thanks for stopping by. ~ Angie

  2. I don't have much gray in my home but I love it...your inspiration pics are awesome!


I love hearing from you, and your comments make my day!
