Gone are the days of relegating gray to the bottom drawer of drab colors, taken out only for fairy tale orphanages and dungeons needing extra layers of blah. Today’s savvy at-home designer knows there is an array of options covering the bases of every imaginable gray color scheme, and it would seem they all can be found in theBenjamin Moore color gallery.
When you’re deciding on the perfect gray for your personal interior design, consider the ever popularGray Owl, which has a range of color compatibility that is versatile and distinctive. Understanding that versatility will help you design a space in your house that at once soothes you and excites you to be home. Consider the following ideas as you begin your design journey and let Benjamin Moore make your gray days vibrant.
Considering the fact that it is indeed gray, it’s easy to understand that Gray Owl is a paint color that can coat your walls with a lovely sheen, yet not overpower other designs or pieces in the room. This Benjamin Moore shade loves coming to the party but doesn’t mind staying in the background and letting some other colors get all the compliments (like Smokey Ash and Tea, two colors that work well at being the life of the party)
Using Gray Owl on the walls allows you to use a darker color scheme for your furniture and accessories. Black accents are always a sure bet when designing a space, but having bold black pieces will serve as a stark statement that invites conversation and keeps the contrast perfect. This is a “can’t miss” design!
If you’re tired of the same, traditional (a.k.a. boring) white ceilings and want to bring a bold surprise overhead, consider using this Benjamin Moore paint to top off your design–literally. The rich color of the Gray Owl offsets the lovely color you choose for the walls and painted furniture (perhaps theSilver SpringandAppalachian Brown). This design will warm the room and lend a cozy intimacy that will make you feel like you’re on top of the world.
As it turns out, the powder room was where one went to refresh their powdered wig and nose or to make a quick retreat from boorish conversation (yawn!). Typically, the powder room was a water closet near the formal entertaining room, making it convenient for guests needing a moment to themselves.
Repainting your cabinets costs about 80% less than installing a brand new kitchen and still cooks up amazing results. Yet, success hinges on prepping surfaces correctly and choosing the right paint products. Start by getting a handle on these steps to bring fresh color to your cucina and reclaim your kitchen’s shelf confidence.
