Top 10 Shades of Blue/Gray Paint Colors

Some of my favorite shades of grays are those with hints of blue in them. I love how fresh, clean and calm they can make a room feel. They are also very popular right now and really have become the new neutral. There are so many colors that look great with these grays, you can accent almost anything with them and they look great against white or can look beautiful with wood. When we were painting our kitchen, I tried what felt like a million samples and looked at a lot of inspiration pictures to get the perfect blue/gray to go against our white cabinets. Here are some of my favorites!

  • Great colors! Add Gray Wisp (Benjamin Moore) to the list. It’s a great match to Silver Sage (Restoration Hardware). I know it’s been around for awhile, but I think it’s a timeless color.

    HI, I am trying to decide between two Sherwin Williams grey colors. One is Online SW# 7072 and the is Argos SW# 7065. I am looking for a neutral gray but one that has more of the cool, blue undertones rather than a warm or tan undertone. This is for a master bedroom with white shutters and crown molding. I want it to be more saturated than neutral but not too dark either. Am I on the right track? Thanks, Susan
