Q: I've been digging around for the perfect warm gray for my living room. I'm a little bit of a picky person, and I've already blown through many Benjamin Moore paint samples. I really want to get the job done right, and I'm getting frustrated because I still feel like I can't find "the one": I've tried: Abalone: too red/bland Shale: too red Thunder: too bland Etiquette, Classic Grey, Barren Plain, Grey Owl: all too light Taos Taupe, Shenandoah Taupe: too dark Berkshire Beige: too brown Stone Harbor...maybe...it's the finalist so far... The colors in my home are: Squirrel Tail, Metropolitan, Blue Porcelain, Greyhound, and Aganthus Green. I like gray, gray, and more gray. I do not like brown, however, my kitchen has brown accents (floor, cabinets, and granite counter tops). Since the room I'm painting (the living room) is connected to the kitchen, I feel like I have to find a gray that will work with the browns in the kitchen. Currently, my living room is Mountain Lane green. Please help! I need recommendations for a warm gray that's light enough for a small room with limited natural light, but also dark enough to make a statement. Photo 1: Taken at a baby shower, shows the main wall in the living room to be painted. (No more brown couch or curtains, though) Photo 2: Shows how the living room is connected to the kitchen with brown accents. Photo 3: Shows the new, gray furniture and the window in the living room.
