Gray wisp by BM vs. silver sage by Restoration Hardware?

sis2twoJune 12, 2010

Recently I received a small sample of the silver sage paint color by RH and really like it. My question is this--I have heard that gray wisp by BM is an exact match and I am wondering if one may be a better paint or not. Also is it really an exact match or not. I use BM paints but have no problems ordering the other if it is as good as BM or better. Thank you in advance.

Gray Wisp is not an exact match to Silver Sage. Gray Wisp is the CLOSEST match to Silver Sage at a 96% match if I recall correctly.

They are close but they are def. 2 different colors.

If you take an original SS chip and compare it to a Gray Wisp chip, there is zero discernable difference. A sample pot of SS from RH and a quart of Gray Wisp mixed in interior Regal Matte using the computer formula for GW from the computer and there is no discernable difference between SS and GW. Paint out a full room with SS from RH and, again, GW from BenM in Regal Matte and there is no discernable difference.

Given those very specific circumstances and I would absolutely call GW a *match* for SS. Aura Matte works as well as Regal Matte.

I used grey wisp in my mudroom and silver sage in the living room. I can't tell any difference! I would go with whatever is easiest to get. Although I think the quality is better with BM.
