So, to answer the big question: Is gray still in, or is it out? In all honesty, gray isn’t as wildly popular as it was a few years ago. But also: It’s a neutral color, so it’ll never go out completely.
Which brings us to today’s Spotlight: Benjamin Moore’s Feather Gray 2127-60. Feather Gray is a “cool, airy gray that mirrors the soft plume of seagull.”
It’s a very cool, blue-gray paint color that’s part of the Color Preview Collection. It would work in virtually any room of the house that can handle the cool blue undertone, from the kitchen to the bathroom and anywhere in between.
Coordinating colors include:
- White Heron
- Chantilly Lace
- Paper White
It has an LRV of 58.3, which is just above the middle of the scale, meaning it reflects some light but not nearly as much as a bright white.
How Can I Get a Sample?
The best way to try out Sherwin Williams paint colors is to order a 12”x12” peel-and-stick sample from Samplize.
A few things I love about these true color samples:
- You can easily move them around from room to room.
- They cost MUCH less than traditional sample pots, brushes/rollers, and foam boards.
- They are more environmentally friendly.
Plus, they’re typically delivered in just 1-3 business days, so you don’t have to add one more errand to your list (and then go back again and again when you don’t like how they look in your space).
What is a Color Spotlight?
Every day this month, I’m highlighting a different paint color for my readers — mainly colors I haven’t really talked about before on the blog — as a fun little project.
They’re super quick blurbs that you can read in less than five minutes (NOT long, drawn out color reviews).
This will not only expose you to a variety of fun hues you might not have considered, but it’ll also give me fresh ideas for future blog posts.
