Looking for a soft grey with low bluish undertones. Would love to hear from anyone who has it. I don't want a lot of blue, more a soft grey.
I haven't, but you might also look at Bunny Gray. I almost used it when I wanted a straight-on pale gray, but it definitely had a blue undertone when I looked at it in the room I was working on.
Gray Cashmere is 2138-60. I did test out Gray Cashmere in a darkish kitchen. I wanted a neutral and it felt quite blue with my off white trim and natural woodwork. I used Horizon instead, which I love. It feels invisible to me. It does not have a blue cast at all.
I used 2138-50, Misted Green, in a bedroom feels very blue to me and not at all neutral.
This color strip, when you look a the darkest blocks, goes quite green. I've linked the BM color viewer for Gray Cashmere, just in case you haven't seen it.

Hi, we have had gray cashmere in our bedroom, for many years. It definitely has a green undertone; in fact, in our room, it looks more sagey, than gray. It works for us, but I don't really see any blue. Hope that helps.
I so appreciate the reponses. I do not want green at all. I was hoping a soft grey. I don't mind a slight blue undertone in certain light, but I do not want a blue look.
I'll have to keep looking.

Thanks, teacups. I painted my daughters room Grey Owl and it was blue. Very pretty and went well with her white furnishings.
I'm wondering if Edgecomb has as much blue? Almost appears a bit purple on my monitor.
Edgecomb has NO blue. If anything it veers tan.
In our light (NorthEast) Grey Cashmere runs very greeny blue.
You could definitely try Horizon OC 53 which tends to run blue. Could also try Moonshine which would be slightly greyer and quite a bit warmer/greener IMO.
My friend swears by paper white and paper white 50% intensity which is a very neutral, bluish, very light grey (one step up from Sterling).
Just wanted to thank you all, I'm going tomorrow to get some samples and try them out. I do not want green but a slight bluish undertone will work.
You folks are great!
robotropolis, could you explain what you mean about Paper White at 50% intensity? Is that mixed with something else?
Hi jane, it's basically paper white but ask them just to put half as much pigment in. Makes it lighter. Or for example if you liked Sterling but wanted it lighter you could ask for 50% intensity.
