Gray Owl by Benjamin Moore paint is one of the most popular gray paint colors in use right now. I really like this color but like most it looks vey different depending on the light in the room. Here are a couple other very popular grays on the market today thats folks are using as neutrals in thier homes. Each of these colors are by Benjamin Moore. I have used Classic Gray by Benjamin Moore and Gray Owl Benjamin Moore in our current home. Lets just be honest no color ever looks just like it does on the paint chip.
I think Gray Owl like many grays can give off a blue tint depending on the amount of natural light you get in your room or even the light bulbs you are using. I have a new design client that is renovating a home in Falls Church and we just decided on all of her house colors and in her kitchen/living room I had her swap out her recess lights to a more “clear” bulb so she didn’t get so much yellow light and it made a huge difference.
I ended up using Gray Owl by Benjamin Moore in my new office area in our master suite upstairs. I love the color in this room mainly because we get tons of natural light up here which is great for this color. Here it is in our home and I didn’t alter the image its a true to color as I could get it.
I pulled a few other images from online of gray owl in other peoples homes. If/when you are testing colors in your home place a couple coats on the wall and test it in different areas of the room so you can see how the light plays with the color.
Do you have other gray walls colors you love? Or have you used gray owl before and what did you think? If you are looking for other wall color suggestions I have a Pinterest board dedicated to wall colors I love. Check it out here.
