Know of a nice gray/green wall color?

parrotsinthekitchenNovember 10, 2010

I'm searching for a subtle gray/green wall color that is not too green and not too dark. I tried Vale Mist by Benjamin Moore, but it was too green. I also tried Winterwood, but it was too dark. Has anyone used a gray green that they really liked? Pictures?

I don't have pictures, but have suggestions. SW Grassland, Austere Gray (less yellow in it than Grassland) and Comfort Gray ( a little more blue than the others). There's another one-Escape Gray? - in the strip next to Austere Gray that might also work for you.

I've used Austere Gray and Comfort Gray and they are very subtle and pretty.

Home Depot carries Martha Stewart paint now, and they have a wonderful grey/green called Winter's Day. Depending on the lighting in the room or the other colors used with it, it's hard to tell if it's green or grey. We love it. Check it out.

Valspar, Coastal Villa.

It's that gray you see to the right of the cabinets.

And another shot of it, the fireplace wall is something else.

Thanks everyone. I'm going to check them all out. A few questions, comments:

Randita - Are all paints Sherwin Williams?
Brookelizabeth - The brand for "sweet spring"? Ben Moore?
Beekeeperswife - Gorgeous room. Love wall color.

Sorry I'm late getting back to this thread. You probably already found that all my suggestions are SW.
