EDGECOMB GRAY

When we bought our house, all the walls were a dark khaki. We wasted little time painting the walls light gray paint colors. We wanted a warm, airy feeling to our house, so we chose warm light gray paint colors “greige” paint colors. After painting our living room and dining room Balboa Mist, we were happy with the airy yet warm hues. Even though we had already painted our living room (Behr’s White Chocolate,) I am seriously considering repainting it Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray so feels cleaner and warmer.

BENJAMIN MOORE EDGECOMB GRAY UNDERTONES

Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray is a nice airy yet somewhat muddy gray paint color. Its tawny tone is the perfect tone between beige and gray. Without paint samples next to one another, it is hard to compare paint colors, so below, I will compare side by side paint chips so you can see any undertones in Edgecomb Gray.

BENJAMIN MOORE GRAY OWL VS. BENJAMIN MOORE EDGECOMB GRAY

 Benjamin Moore Gray Owl (see my complete review here) is one of Benjamin Moore’s most popular and best gray paint colors for good reason it is a lovely light gray paint color. However, it is quite different than Edgecomb Gray with its undertones of blue. Edgecomb Gray is a much warmer light gray paint color than Gray Owl, and is more of a greige paint color with much more beige in it.

Similar to Pale Oak, Balboa Mist is a light gray paint color that while being a warm gray paint color, pales in comparison to the warmth of Edgecomb Gray. Balboa Mist has significantly more bluish undertones than Edgecomb Gray.

EDGECOMB GRAY VS. CLASSIC GRAY:

Edgecomb Gray and Classic Gray are both wonderful light gray paint colors–two of my favorite paint colors and best gray paint colors.  Classic Gray is much less saturated than Edgecomb Gray and a much lighter paint color than Edgecomb Gray, but it lacks the brownish undertones which gives Edgecomb Gray its warmth and tawniness. If you want a room that is cozier, then I would go with Edgecomb Gray like we plan to do in our fmaily room.
