Deep Space wall paint idea by Benjamin Moore Pinterest

Gray is one of neutral hues owning many advantages. The color can bring good mood just through its ambiance-maker. It also deals with serene and calm look. For more exciting tone, gray can be combined with poppy or bold colors. Then, what are designers saying? Here, we’ve collected top designers’ gray paint choices for interiors. Let’s check this out.

Gray Dior – Benjamin Moore is the most favorite. The color is the safest one for any spaces. It’s also elegant and classic – available for any color palettes including blues, neutrals, black, and white.

Get more dramatic look with the darker gray especially for tiny rooms like powder room. Serious Gray by Sherwin-Williams sounds great for this.

Another favorite is Windham by Pratt & Lambert. Visually, the gray is a bit pale, so it’ll be a good choice for warm-nuance space like family room. In detailed observation, the gray leans more in pale taupe, not blue-gray – the reason why the color brings warmth.

O’Brien really loves Cumulous Cloud by Benjamin Moore. He sees that this color is visually rich neutral, warm, and gray-less – look good for kitchen and doors.

Again, Benjamin Moore seems dominating this case. Deep Space exposes high-intense and bold gray – commonly used for most contemporary settings like home library with huge bookshelves. Lawrance thinks that Deep Space is a genius tone – lighter than black but heavier than other gray tones.

Greenish-gray tone. C2 Paint has produced this color slate for a rather poppy look. Bunny Williams often uses it for a transitional space connecting the indoor and outdoor spaces.

Pavilion Gray wall paint by Farrow & Ball


Estee Stanley prefers Farrow & Ball due to its various shades from soft to deep, but the most favorite is Pavilion Gray that gives warmth even when featuring the crisp white. Stunning.

And this is Miles Redd’s favorite – mix Conventry Gray (Benjamin Moore) and Hollandlac Brilliant (by Fine Paints of Europe). The combination produces light as beautiful as gray feathers.

Hollandlac Brilliant, meanwhile, showcases an ultra-glossy finish – creating a glam of black pearls.

Kathryn M. Ireland adores Stone (by C2 Paints). She just painted her house with this color shade. She says that the shade looks great and potentially be best match for her furniture, linens, and arts. Stone is just neutral yet poppy; not overwhelming, she adds.
