Stonington Gray? What's next?

Posted by canadianmiss (My Page) on

I suppose I've chosen Stonington Gray for my kitchen, breakfast area and sunroom. (I say this because the painter is calling me in 5 hours for my decision).

There is a mudroom, laundry room and powder room next to this soon-to-be Stonington space. Not loving the BM recommendations for complimentary colours. Anyone have a couple of good colours that would look nice next to my chosen one?

Thank you!!

Benjamin Moore hands you the colors that best compliment Stonington Gray.

Stonington gray is so neutral, almost any other colors will go with it. It does have a greenish undertone so keep that in mind.

If you can brighten it up with the popular gray/yellow combo with weston flax

Give it a little more warmth with a hint of pink in sheraton beige

Or go with a blue shade like colorado gray

In the powder room, if you want some drama, I'd go with cranberry cocktail. Gray and craberry are one of my favorite color combos.

...or pull some accent color(s) from the surrounding spaces. Is there an accent color from your kitchen that you could pull into the mudroom, for example? I wouldn't just pull random colors out of the paint deck. I do love a pale pinky-peachy color for a powder room, though.

It is very hard to make recommendations without knowing what your flooring, lighting, or furnishings are like.

Make sure you like the green undertone -- it really comes out when next to those other colors Annie posted -- anything with yellow. What are the colors you like? I'd make sure you pick a shade that goes with those. Have you see the Stonington Gray in your house? Do you need to see a sample? You don't sound sold.
