THE PERFECT GRAY

Is it a fairy tale or does it really exist?
Remember Jenna Lyon's former Brooklyn townhouse featured in Domino? Fantastic! 
 Benjamin Moore Coventry Gray
Kyle Knight of Knight Moves blog used Benjamin Moore Señora Gray in her family room and it is the perfect backdrop. 
I am also eyeing that blue and orange lamp!
Nate Berkus used Benjamin Moore Pale Smoke in Katie Lee Joel's former home in the West Village.
I couldn't leave you without another look of this amazing space.
 In Katie Lee Joel's bedroom Nate used Benjamin Moore Cliffside Gray.
Here's Cliffside Gray again and another beautiful design by Nate. This gray might be the one for me!
Abbe Fenimore of Studio Ten 25 blog painted her office Benjamin Moore Stonington Gray
I absolutely love this staircase! The bright white, the nail head trim along the staircase and windows...
Sorry, I lost focus! I know Farrow and Ball's All White is used in this space, but I have yet to determine the wall color!
Peter Dunham (the man who designed this incredible home) feel free to email me!


What's your favorite gray?

  1. I love that you did this post because my mom is painting her bedroom and I am trying to convince her to do a grey, although she is leaning towards more of a blue. I just think grey is so chic and modern. I emailed her the link to your post so she can check it out. Thanks! xoxo

  2. I LOVE gray. My fave right now is BM Coventry Gray. I have to get the nerve up to repaint my front room because the gray blue I bought was more blue. I'm working up to it, you gotta be in the mood. Love all the rooms you picked. Those stairs are gorgeous!

  4. Sent this off to friend that wants to use grey in her house! Always thought of grey as "cold" and more sterile- wow- this changed my mind! Beautiful! Loved the hot pink chairs in the grey room!!!

  5. We just painted our basement in "universal grey". It's too light for my liking... I'll choose one that you featured! Very nice

    1. Good luck, grays can be tough! I do think these have just enough without being too light. There are some awesome dark grays if you decide to go that route!

  6. After looking through a million different grays, we have loved Valspar's Gray Ghost. We used it in three rooms and have loved it!

  9. I have always coveted Kyle's choice of Señora Gray in her living room. You just couldn't ask for a more sophisticated and chic colour!

  13. I had to choose a colour for my living room recently. I thought I would try something different from grey, everyone does grey right? Well I ended up painting it grey, and I love it. Just as much as I love the other grey rooms in my house. These are beautiful examples too!

  15. These are gorgeous! I have been drawn towards grey spaces recently. My favorite, I have to say, right now is Benjamin Moore's Deep Space which I used in my dining room because I wanted to blend in the dark furniture.

  16. Fabulous examples of amazing greys! I want to repaint my family room grey, but it meets up with my living room that, while pretty, is not the perfect gray. It is a blue gray that I like but want to eventually repaint to a true gray....decisions decisions. So thrilled to have found your beautiful blog!
