need help finding this color gray

Hello -

I am in search of that "perfect" gray for my all white 1970s bathroom (which I hate but cannot change...hubby doesn't want to spend any money!!). I found a picture on the JCP site that is advertising the aqua bath rugs that I love. Can anybody tell me a gray (preferably Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams) that would be similar to this very light gray color? Thank you :)

The big rectangle in the middle is a color sample from the picture. You can see four potential paint color *matches* around it. Smoke Embers is a good one to start with.

Hi fun colors - how'd you do that?!?!? I have a pic on my cpu and have no idea where I found it, and I would like to find a similar color.

Oh my, that's a gorgeous color too!

Off the top of my head Pratt & Lambert's Ionian 24-20 would be a TOP contender. P&L is very strong in the blue-green, green-blue part of the spectrum. Here are some BenM color numbers. Same deal, sample from pic in middle.

Funcolors, thanks so much!! I have been running back and forth to Sherwin Williams and I am now in a sort of "sample hell". I am thinking my problem is that my tile is not really grey at all but more of a taupe,greyish beige, swirled with dark brown (since tile is not laid yet, I still have option of another which is a darker color than terracotta but that is what it reminds me of). If I attach another picture, can you tell me the color on the walls and on the island/cabinets (it is a kitchen picture and I am doing a bath but I love the colors). Thanks so much!

Oops, I meant to say running back and forth to Benjamin Moore. But who knows, maybe I will start running back and forth to Sherwin Williams now..:)
