Edgecomb Grey is one of my favourite paint colours. Yet, I haven’t spent much time talking about it here. It’s one of those classic, tried and true Benjamin Moore paint colours that you almost take for granted. But, whenever I post a photo of a room on my Instagram that was painted with Edgecomb Gray, I ALWAYS get questions about the paint colour!
I am not at all surprised. A gorgeous soft, warm gray paint colour like Edgecomb Gray is hard to pin down. It reads as a greige, landing somewhere between a light taupe-y beige and a true, warm gray.
I love Edgecomb Gray because it is light enough to keep a space feeling airy, yet it has enough depth and mood to still feel like a colour. Benjamin Moore describes it as a soft, earthy, organic neutral, and a “go-to grey that’s timeless with a modern edge”. It is definitely a neutral that would work in almost any space.
I have had Edgecomb Gray in my living room for at least 4 years. It has survived a room makeover (or two, lol). I didn’t see any reason to change the paint colour when we purchased new living room furniture last year. You can see how well it plays with pale blue like our sea foam chairs, as well as the cooler grays in the rug.
I also love Edgecomb gray because it is a quiet neutral that works well with both light and dark furniture. I’ve had a chocolate brown sofa and this linen sofa in this room, and it has looked perfect with both.
So if you are looking for a soft, warm grey, I’d definitely recommend looking into this great paint colour. I always suggest starting with a sample in your space before committing to a gallon or more. That’s because paint colours will always look different depending on how much natural light your room gets.
Also, paint colours will always look a little different on your computer monitor than they will on a wall. So make sure to test it out in your space first.
If Edgecomb Gray isn’t working in your space, two similar paint colours that I love are Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter and Benjamin Moore Pale Oak.
Have an awesome day.
Until next time,
