We all love shades of gray (not 50 shades), but wow there are a lot of them! Gray can be a tricky color to use because there are so many different variations with completely different undertones. So to make it easy— here are a few of our favorite gray color combos!

Now we love a bold colors, so these combos reflect our personal sense of drama!  We prefer to find a perfect balance between light and dark.  Remember to think of these colors as not just wall colors, think ceiling, cabinetry, fireplace or wall and trim!

First up is a combo from Benjamin Moore.  On the left is BM Whisp White, and on the right is BM Whale Gray.  These colors are cool and serene and make an amazing statement!  The contrast is bold and makes them the perfect color for a more modern interior.

We would pair these cool tones with warm woods

to make an inviting modern space.

Next up is a great neutral combination from Sherwin Williams.  On the left is SW Drift of Mist, and on the right is SW Grizzle Gray.  Again high in contrast but with a slightly warmer feel, these colors could really create a unique space that could work well with a variety of color schemes.

We would pair these with a mix of white finishes

and warm wood tones.

A crisp clean gray is sometimes hard to find. They can tend to lean brown, blue or even purple depending on the lighting or other finishes around. These two choices from benjamin moore are a couple of our go to choices when we need a clean and simple gray.

We would pair this with crisp white finishes.

We hope you enjoy these gray color combos!
