Benjamin Moore’s Five Favorite Grays

Gray isn’t really a holiday color. And it wasn’t chosen by PANTONE as the color of the year for 2011. But it is my favorite color and decorating with gray is HOT right now in home decor. Yes, it can be considered a neutral but it has a lot more flair and personality than beige or eggshell. The color gray, depending on the shade, can be cool and calming, bright and bold, or metallic and shiny with a hint of flair.

Benjamin Moore has a HUGE color palette! Luckily for us they’ve hand selected five favorite grays out of the entire Benjamin Moore palette for everyone to use as inspriation. This can help you be one step closer to getting the color gray on your walls. No more beige!
