    Ready to dive in? Let’s get into the colors, starting off with #10… Edgecomb Gray.

    10. Edgecomb Gray by Benjamin Moore

    Edgecomb Gray (HC-173, 972, OC-15) – LRV: 63.09 (LRV, or Light Reflectance Value is a scale commonly used by design professionals where 0 = absolute black and 100 is pure white.)

    Edgecomb Gray by Benjamin Moore paint color splotch

    Edgecomb Gray by Benjamin Moore is a warm medium-light greige paint color. This color will present an unmistakable grayish beige appearance, and it won’t look washed out in a room with plenty of natural lighting.

    With a LRV of 63.09, Edgecomb Gray is an amazing paint color when it can be lit up to its full potential with lots of natural light. On the other hand, it’s not a great choice for rooms with limited or no natural lighting.

    Benjamin Moore discribes Edgecomb Gray as:

    A go-to neutral that can refresh a space, while providing a warm, welcoming feeling.

    9. Gray Owl by Benjamin Moore

    Gray Owl (OC-52 / 2137-60) – LRV: 64.51 (LRV, or Light Reflectance Value is a scale commonly used by design professionals where 0 = absolute black and 100 is pure white.)

    Benjamin Moore Gray Owl is a light to medium-light gray paint color. Its color temperature is rather cool, making it perfect for rooms with Southern light. It’s included in my paint color guide: Best Paint Colors For South Facing Rooms.

    Although Gray Owl is on the cooler side of the spectrum, gray is still a neutral color, and it can work well in almost any room (even if it isn’t South facing).

    A use-anywhere light gray with a cool, crisp cast.

    The Easiest Way To Test Paint Colors

    If you look at a paint color on your phone, or on a paint color card in a store, you’ll get a decent idea how the paint color will look.

    However, the lighting and colors in every room are unique, and paint colors always look a little different once you get them up on your walls.

    This is why it’s so important to test out paint colors on your walls.

    My favorite way to test paint colors is using Samplize Peel-and-Stick Paint Samples. I’ve been using them for years, and they always make it so much easier to choose a paint color.

    Sale alert! Right now you can get 2 samples for FREE, when you purchase 8 or more.

    Benjamin Moore Pale Oak is a warm, light, bright gray paint color. With a LRV of 69.89, it’s so bright, that it’s almost half way between off-white, and gray.

    This paint color appears gray, and with the right lighting, you can see the faintest warm golden glow of yellow undertones.

    With its warm gray undertones, this versatile neutral conjures the quiet majesty of white oak.

    classic gray by Benjamin Moore paint color splotch

    Classic Gray by Benjamin Moore is one of my favorite light gray paint colors. Classic Gray is so light, that it’s actually kind of a hybrid color that could be classified as light gray, or off-white.

    This is a great whole-home color, and offers more depth of color than a standard white paint color. Even though it has depth and complexity, it’s still light and bright – which is tough to pull off!

    An ultra-light shade of gray that can also function as an off-white.

    How To Get A Great Deal On Paint

    Did you know that you can use budget friendly paint, and have it color matched to premium Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams paint colors? At Joyfully Growing Blog, we always use Glidden Premium paint from The Home Depot.

    Glidden Premium rivals the quality of the top paint lines from Behr, Sherwin Williams, and Benjamin Moore.

    Any paint store, or home improvement store with a paint section will be able to match colors from most major brands. This means that you can select one brand of paint, but get it mixed in any color you want!

    In many cases, affordable paint like Glidden Premium can be up to 50% cheaper than the ‘big name brand’ competition. This can save you a ton of money!

    Our Go-To Painting Supplies

    Tip: I love this one for tall walls or ceilings, it has an extendable handle.

    It’s an excellent quality sprayer, and powers through any painting projects in a hurry. Painting with an airless sprayer makes it easy to complete projects in much less time.

    • Drop cloth – Skip the mess and grab a reusable drop cloth instead. This will come in handy for future projects. Just pop it in the washing machine after you’re done painting and it will be ready to go for the next project.
    • Multi-surface painter’s tape – I always use this brand of painter’s tape, it’s great for smooth or lightly textured walls, trim, baseboards, tile, or even glass. It sticks quick and is easy to remove.
    • Sanding sponges – For smoothing and prepping surfaces, you’ll need a couple of sanding sponges in different grits.
