Color Crush: Benjamin Moore Collingwood

January 31, 2018

I think Ben Moore’s Collingwood OC- 28 is a great neutral color that is often overlooked for the more popular colors such as Revere Pewter and Edgecomb Gray.

Did you know that Collingwood is one of the most ‘true’ grays, (non-undertoned gray), in the Benjamin Moore color palette collection? It does have a slight undertone of purple, but in all of my years specifying this paint color for clients, I have never heard anyone ever complain of actually seeing purple in their room:

Unlike Revere and Edgecomb, (which are grays with green undertones with some beige mixed in), Collingwood does not change from gray to greige depending on the light in a room. It stays a true soft gray in all lighting.

Collingwood is one of the only grays you can use on your walls that will not read blue or green. Seriously!(Most grays have either  blue or green undertones and they are very obvious about  showing them off). This color is part of Ben Moore’s off-white colors with an LRV of 62 which means the color will be soft and light, (the higher the Light Reflective Value number, the lighter and brighter a color will be). I LOVE this kitchen where the cabinets are painted with Collingwood in a semi-gloss finish:

Beautiful! Another reason I am loving Collingwood is because of how well it works with white trim as well as with stained wood:

And if you were wondering if Collingwood OC-28 is the same color as Collingwood 859? Yes, it is! I hope you will consider looking at Benjamin Moore’s Collingwood OC-28 next time you are searching for the perfect neutral for your home.

Thanks everyone!!  Kelly

  1. Thanks, Kelly. Collingwood is a strong contender for my living room walls. I’ve always loved it since I saw it in a friend’s kitchen. This post has tipped the scales in that choice. The pictures ars beautiful.

  2. Wowsy! My heart is beating wildly. I have always admired color that has light in it. This color will work wonderfully with our woodtones. Kelly, any thoughts about white vs. creme ceiling and accessories with this color? I know light source plays a big part in everything.

    • I think it is so pretty too Teena. For the ceiling, I would rather see an off white such as White Dove than a bright white with Collingwood. Balboa Mist OC-27 would be my ideal color if possible which is a shade lighter than Collingwood. Colors for accessories? Pretty open in colors! Blues, greens, reds, not yellow, and black to name a few. With stained trim, I like to see darker accessories, such as navies, and lighter colors for white trim such as light blues or greens. Not written in stone- you have to experiment which YOU like best! Hope this helps!

  3. Hello Kelly I’m loving your blog. I’ve chosen Collinwood for my walls and Simply White for the trim. My fire mantel is ceiling to floor wood trim and would love to pick another gray color to spotlight the focal point. What color would you suggest? A darker gray or a lighter gray?
    Thank you, Felice M.

    • Hi Felice,
      To decide which shade of gray, which would blend better with the stone? The light or darker color? Then ask yourself if you would rather have the trim blend in or stand out with a darker color? Hope this helps!

  4. Hi Kelly, I think I’m choosing Collingwood for the living room, kitchen, and hallway (they all flow together) The hallway has a chair rail (stained wood). What would you suggest as a darker color for the bottom of the chair rail if collingwood is the color above the rail?? Thanks!!

    • Hi Stephanie, I see two options for you- is it possible to take down chair rail? Unless you love it or it ties in with your architecture, removing it might update your hallway into a clean space. If the chair rail must stay, take a look at
      Ben Moore Escarpment cc-518 for a darker bottom color. Hope this helps you!

  5. Hi! I’ve decided to use collingwood gray for our open concept living/dining/kitchen. What do you recommend for the ceiling color? My painter suggested a very light gray but he hasn’t actually seen the paint sample.

    • Hi Katie,
      I would not use a gray for the ceiling. With the undertones going on, (in the different grays and collingwood), I would just select a nice off-white such as Ben Moore White Dove to keep it clean. Hope this helps!

  6. Glad I stumbled on to your blog! I am afraid of painting my walls a color that looks like builder’s beige. Do you think Collingwood tips that way? I would like to change my yellow/cream walls to something greyish, but am worried about the builder’s beige or being too dreary. I like in the PNW. We already get dreary a lot! My family room is painted SW Sea Salt. Does collingwood go with that? I already have the sample!

    • Hi Kim,
      When you are talking about builders beige- do you mean like Manchester Tan? Or Grant Beige? They are both great neutrals and are not boring like the builders’s white I call it. Collingwood is a much warmer beige. I checked color with SW Sea Salt- looks good with the Collingwood. Also looks great with Man Tan and Grant Beige. Hope this helps! Try painting sample on poster board so you can move around day and night to be sure you love!

  7. Hi Kelly,
    I just found your blog and found it helpful. l brought home a sample of BM Colllingwood OC -28 today and painted it on white poster board as the consultant recommended. We are getting ready to paint our hallway leading upstairs and are first in the process of painting out our wainscotting to white after redoing the staircase and upstairs hallway to oak flooring. The hallway is typically dark going upstairs and down the hallway. At the top of the stairs our first bedroom is painted in Silver Lining that was lightened. I think that is why the consultant recommended Collingwood I find the sample dark for the lighting…. what are your thoughts? Recommendations would be greatly appreciated! Our open downstairs is painted in rich cream. Thanks!

    • Hi Heather,
      I am not sure why they suggested Collingwood. I myself do not like to suggest darker colors in the hallway with not enough light. But that is without seeing any photos of your home. If you would like, you can send me a couple photos including the areas you are speaking about and I will take a look. [email protected].

  8. Hi! I have loved every photo of collingwood and the sample board I painted is exactly like the photos I have seen. I was convinced I finally found the color to use it in my upstairs hallway, staircase, downstairs hallway/living room. The painter painted the upstairs hallway in collingwood and it is totally different than my sample board and all photos! It is 100% tan, showing no gray. I am now afraid to carry it downstairs and into the areas planned. Any ideas why it would go tan and any suggestions on whether I take the chance on it again or try a different warm gray in the areas downstairs?

    • Hi Kristen,
      I always hesitate to use Collingwood in a darker hallway because the color leans more on the beige side. In a open, sun-lit rooms, you will see more of that light warm gray instead of the tan. First, I would make sure your painter got the right paint color. It happens! I would paint with two coats on a large posterboard that you can move all around and look at day and night. That is how you will see the true color of the paint in your home. Hope this helps!

  9. I am having such a hard time picking a color. I love this review but I’m scared the make the leap. I have a raised ranch with white walls. I love the warm grey/Greige colors but I can’t commit. The living room dining room and kitchen are all tied together as well as the entry way. Would this be a good color for all of those areas?

    • Hi Tessa,

      Hard for me to say how it will look with your kitchen cabinets, counters, floors etc. Collingwood is a very soft warm gray. If you think of trying Collingwood, paint a large posterboard and live with a few days, day and night to see how it looks in your home. An extra project but well worth the time and money. If you would like to work together online with a color consultation, please email me at [email protected]. Thanks for writing!

    • Hi Monica, The Collingwood does get darker in less lit areas. To make sure it works with your brick fireplace, I would get a sample and paint a poster board and look at day and night to see how you like together. Hope this helps you.

  10. I am thinking of painting my kitchen/family room in Collingwood. I have brighter white cabinets and a dark stained island. I have a brick fireplace that is going to have a wood mantle and shiplap going up the wall behind the fireplace. The mantle and shiplap will be painted Chantilly Lace along with the trim. I want to paint the brick fireplace a medium to dark gray. Any suggestions for a color that will work well with what I am planning? The lighting in the room is southern exposure (lots of greenery outside)…nice and bright. Thanks.

    • Hi Sue,

      Are you able to send me a photo? Hard for me to select a color when you have many different items in the space. The first color I think of when a medium to dark gray would be Ben Moore Chelsea Gray, or a little darker would be Kendall Charcoal. Hope this helps!

  11. Hi Kelly –
    I have recently had my living room/dining room/hallway in my townhouse painted in the SW color Clay Bisque. I was SUPER disappointed to come back home to see the pink and purple undertones to it. We have variability of the light in the house, but I keep coming back to Revere Pewter vs Collingwood. Which would you recommend to keep that more “greige” color with the variability of a lot of light in some rooms and then darker hallways?

    Thanks so much & love this blog!

    • Hi Kristen,
      That is too bad about your first paint job. You must have been so upset! Husband too I bet.
      For the look of griege consistently, I would use Revere Pewter. Hard to explain what a beautiful color it is in well lit areas and darker areas also. In the darker areas, the Revere will look darker, but a griege darker. Good luck!

  12. hello, had a consultant suggest SW agreeable gray for my split level home. with the west walls/hallway too, in network gray. love the blue undertone in network gray (it compliments the oak cabinets) but I think it will be too dark for the hallway that does not have much natural light. my house is all oak trim and I’m really having difficulty trying to decide what color to paint. I like Collingwood from BM but what would you recommend as a coordinating color to brighten up a small dark hallway? Thank you

    • Hi Maurern, If you really like the SW Network Gray but feel it will be too dark, about about a lighter version such as SW Gray Screen SW 7071? It also will work well with Agreeable Gray.

  13. Just painted our north facing kitchen in Collingwood. Looks beautiful. My livingroom is directly across from the kitchen but more north facing and darker overall. What BM colour would you suggest for the Livingroom? The kitchen has always had more natural light so the Collingwood seems to work in there. Also I am looking for a colour for hallways that have no natural light. Thank you.

    • Hi Sue,

      Hard for me to guess colors without seeing the interior of your home. If you would like to work together on an online color consultation. send me an email and we can talk details.

  14. Just painted ensuite Collingwood gray, do like it but would prefer different color for bedroom.
    Wood floor medium oak and bedroom furniture light
    Cherrywood.
    Any suggestions.

    Thanks

    • Hi Melinda,

      I would need to see photos of your home to get you the best possible color. I do online color consultations and it is easy! You send a few photos of your room you would like help with, with a brief description of what you would like to achieve in room. I charge $45.00 per color to make sure you get the best color choice for your home. Let me know if you are interested in working together. Thank you for writing!

  15. You may have answered this question before, but does SW offfer an equivalent paint color to BM Collingwood? My upstairs and main floor are painted in Collingwood, however, my contractor gets a discount on SW paint. Thanks for all your advice!

  16. Hi,
    I have been debating a lot between Collingwood and Edgecomb gray. My room currently has Wild Mushroom and I have beige furniture with cabinets that have a orange undertone. The room is open concept and does have a lot of natural light. Is the trend going towards the taupes which I see in the Edgecomb Gray. It seems a lot lighter than the Collingwood too. Any advice would be appreciated!

    • Hi Anita,

      It is almost impossible to now which color would work well in your space without my seeing photos of your home. If you would like to work together, please email me and send me a few photos along with a brief description of what you are looking for and I will write back and explain the simple process of finding the best color for you. Thanks for writing.

  17. Hi.. thank you for sharing all the great info! What do you think about collingwood (125%) on walls and classic grey on trim. All light filled rooms that are common areas like hallway, foyer and mudroom.

    • Hi Julie,

      The only concern I have is that when I put Collingwood and Classic Gray together, the green undertone of the classic gray really stands out against the taupe of Collingwood. Maybe a more neutral color such as White Dove will work together better?

  18. I have been reading your advice for awhile. Love Collingwood but wondering how it would look with 1986 oak cabinets in kitchen. Not ready to paint cabinets yet, just want to tone down the orange tone of old cabinets.
    Thank you
    JoAnn

    • Hi JoAnn,

      It is not my favorite combination, gray and oak. If you would like to try it, paint a large posterboard in Collingwood and see how it looks with your cabinets. Good luck with your project!

  19. I just moved and am struggling to find a light gray for my living room/dining room with north exposure and not a ton of light. The difficulty is that I have beige couches that seem to be showing a lot of pink undertone in this room, especially agains the grays. Any color suggestions? I’ve painted up samples of BM Nimbus, Gray Owl, Stonington, Horizon, and Bunny Gray and none seem “right”. Most of them are looking really blue in the room and making the furniture seem extra pink. Ick.

    • Hi Lanay,
      Did you take a look at Balboa Mist OC-27? A bit lighter than Collingwood- a true gray. Really nice neutral. Check and see how it works with your sofa. A little lighter choice would be Silver Satin OC_26. Hope this helps!

  20. Hi Kelly,

    I have chair rail that runs around my formal dining and formal living rooms. I think I’d like to paint the top portion Pale Oak (Benjamin Moore) and was thinking Collingwood for the lower portion because I want something a little darker. Do you think those two colors will pair together ok? Or other suggestions?

    It looks so pretty in the pictures above.
    Thank you,
    Kelly

    • Hi Kelly,
      I compared the two colors together and I am not sure they make the best pairing. How about the Pale Oak on the bottom with Dove Wing OC-18 or White Dove OC-17 on the top? Collingwood is beautiful but I would not use the two together. There will not be enough contrast between the two colors and it will look like you tried to match and it did not work. Hope this helps in your decision!

  21. Hi Kelly,
    We are painting the interior of our home to sell and our real estate agent recommended Collingwood. I love it! Problem is, the painter only uses Sherwin Williams paints. Can you tell me if there is a SW equivalent?

    Thanks so much!
    Rachel

  22. Hi Kelly,
    I absolutely love BM Collingwood Gray, used it throughout my cottage/ home in every room incl bathrooms & en-suite except my 2 upper bedrooms, I used BM Classic Gray because 2 bedrms have northern exposure, thought Collingwood might be too dark but wish I had used Collingwood now. Woodwork trimmed in cloud white and have wide plank floors in Early American.
    My question is would it be ok to colour block the master bedroom wall that the bed is placed against in either Collingwood or Pewter & would this colour be complimentary with the classic gray on the other 3 walls? The reason….the classic gray is very very light and my new bedding against pure white bed and classic gray wall colour seems so pale and washed out. In comparison the bedding seems too powerful for that colour. The room needs some depth. My husband doesn’t want to repaint that whole room again! Thx for any suggestions or opinions!

    • Hi Wendy,
      I say yes to a darker accent wall! Instead of a light color like Collingwood, I would go with a darker color with more pizzazz. Is there a color in your new bedding that you could bring out and paint as the accent wall?

  23. Hi Kelly-
    Picking colors for our laundry/mudroom. Collingwood looks to be top contender. Now I wonder about ceiling and trim paint.
    I really like a crisp bright white trim. Would Simply White be ok or do you have another recommendation. How about for ceiling? We have 9 foot ceiling and I am partial to white ceilings.
    Thank you,
    Jean

  24. Hi Kelly,
    I am repainting my kitchen. I like collingwood or balboa mist for walls.
    Thinking about revere pewter for the wainscoating below. Is there enough contrast?
    All bm colors
    Thanks

    • Hi Gail,

      I do not think there is enough contrast. You don’t want people to think you were trying to match up and it didn’t work. I would look for a stronger paint color that works with Collingwood/Balboa Mist. Or paint it all one color if you want a soft, calming, neutral effect in kitchen. Good luck!

  25. It’s nice to see you providing a Sherwin-Williams match to Collingwood! Do you happen to know which Behr color would be the best match to Collingwood? Thank you in advance.

  26. Hi Kelly!
    We recently painted our 26 year old golden oak kitchen cabinets BM Collingwood. Love the way they turned out..Will be installing Blanco Antico granite soon. Floors are medium- dark oak. Kitchen is very large and gets lots of light. I’m having a hard time trying to pick a wall color. Would like a light color but not too gray. Any suggestions?

    • Hi Janet,

      If you liked the Collinwood, take a look at Balboa Mist OC-27, which is a shade lighter than Collingwood. One step lighter would be Silver Satin OC-26. Both beautiful colors.

  27. Hi Kelly,

    I will be painting over a bedroom in Collingwood. Love the color. I will also be painting the bedroom furniture. What would be a nice coordinating color that would look nice with collingwood for the furniture? The trim is white and the flooring is a creamy berber carpet. The bedroom is on the small size.

    Thank you,

    Deanna

    • Hi Deanna,

      Collingwood is pretty neutral, so you have a few choices! My favorite color would be blue. It can be a little blue, medium or dark, navy blue. All work well. Green is another color that will look perfect with the Collingwood. Good luck on your project!

  28. I have an interior bathroom painted in Balboa Mist, with a creamy tile half-way up the wall as wainscoting. I’m looking for a trim color for the interior door and door molding, andI don’t want a green undertone. The Balboa Mist already seems to make the cream colored tile look green. Would Collingwood help to tone down the green by using it on the trim, leaving the Balboa Mist on the walls?

    • Hi Lisa,

      I don’t think the Collingwood will help tone down the green. Maybe the Balboa is fighting with the creamy tile. I would just select a white, such as White Dove or Simply White to use for the trim. Hope this helps.

    • Hi Chris, No I do not think it will be too dark at all. Bathrooms are a great place for darker colors because when you go in the bath, you turn on the lights so it gets bright right away. Very pretty color.

  29. Hi Kelly,
    My kitchen cupboards lean towards more of a cream color. I’m trying to find a gray that will play down the yellow tones. Would you suggest Collingwood?

  30. Hi Kelly,

    Love the living room you did with the horse on mantel and silver frames. Can you tell me what the color is that you used from the chair rail down? Its absolutely stunning:)

    • Hi Jessica,
      I tried to track the paint colors for you but no luck. There is a source link where the photo came from under the photo on blog. It is beautiful- but not my work. Sorry I could not be more help!

  31. I just found you and am so enjoying reading all of your comments!
    I have a burgundy brick fireplace in a family room (open Concept with kitchen) that I am trying to decorate around as well as tie in a color that will blend nicely with oak cabinets and granite that has beigh/gray and warm tanish/cream tones. So much to try to blend in! What are your thoughts on Collingwood for a neutral that can pull it’s weight with warmer tones in kitchen and not look horrible next to the burgundy fireplace? Thank you so much!

    • Hi Lauri,
      I looked at Collingwood and also Balboa Mist to work with brick fireplace and oak cabinets. Both look good with brick, but I am not a fan of light colors with the oak cabinets. I like medium colors with the brick and cabinets. Take a look at Chelsea Gray HC-168- would look beautiful. I like green colors with the oak but not fireplace. Hope this helps!

  32. Hi Kelly,
    I am looking for a greige paint color for my family room and kitchen. My couch is charcoal grey and my cabinets in the kitchen are cherry wood along with my entertainment unit in family room. I also have oak floors in family room. I am looking at collingwood paint with white dove for the trim but I’m not sure if it will be too light. I want a nice warm greige color with more beige in it.

    • Hi Karen,
      Hard for me to visualize without photos. I have an online color consulting business that will help you select the best colors. If you would like to work together, send me an email and I will get back to you with the details. Thanks!

  33. Hi Kelly
    I am painting my main floor Paint colour Benjamin Moore Collingwood OC-28 and Nimbus. 1465. In the Living room.. I’m looking for a very light colour for my powder room as it is very small no natural light. I want to go white but not to white something that would tie in with the other colours as the bathroom cabinet is a light shade of grey.

    • Hi Teresa,
      I would not be able to help you without photos. If you would like to work with my online color consulting service, please send me an email. Thank you for writing.

  34. Loving this color. Question do you know the color combo in your picture that has the darker wainscoting and the Collingwood color above the wainscot?

    • Hi Tena,

      So many variations to look for before choosing a color. If you would like to work together, I offer online color consulting services. If you can email me photos of your kitchen with a brief description of what you are looking for, I will be able to help. Thanks for writing!

  35. Thank you for this! I am looking for a light / soft neutral gray or “greige” for the exterior of our home . today at the paint store they recommended pale oak/balboa mist or collingwood — I am wondering what your thoughts are on collingwood as an exterior paint. Our house is a colonial and we would like to do a navy door and white trim… would love to hear your thoughts!

    • Hi Meg,

      I looked online at photos for Collingwood exterior- it looks beautiful. Make sure to paint poster board in color and move around day and night to see if you love for the whole house. Good luck!

  36. Hi! My kitchen gets a good amount of light and is painted Collingwood. My trim is simply white. Now I can’t decide on cabinet colors. Would dove white look dingy? Should I go brighter maybe stay simply white or maybe Greek villa? Thanks!

  37. Hi Meg,

    I love Collingswood! What color would you do the beaded board in a master bathroom? This will be against the white trim – Collingswood on the top of the beaded board which will also be a full wall behind the double
    Porcelain sinks?

    So my question is in a bright room with white ceilings and trim – what would you pain the beaded board a semi gloss of the same como e Collingswood. Or a shade darker if so which one?
    The off walls will be Collingswood and adjacent master bedroom is Collingswood!
    Floors are white with black.

    Thanks-
    Christine

    • Hi Christine,
      I would paint the bead board the same white as the trim in semi gloss finish. I think the white will be beautiful with the top Collingswood. Love how you tied in your bedroom with Collingswood also. Hope this helps!

  38. Hi Kelly,

    So I have decided to commit to collingswood. I’ll attach a pic of my dining and living room combo so you have a better understanding of what I’m talking about.

    There’s a separation (crown molding?) Towards the bottom half of the wall. What color would you suggest I do the other half of the wall that goes well with Collingwood? And do I use that color in the top or bottom?

    • Hi Maria,
      I wish I could help but I need photos and questions to give you the best colors for your home. If you would like to work together, send me an email with a brief description and photos of your home. I have an online color consultation service and the rate to help you find paint color is $55.00 Let me know! Thanks for writing.

  39. Ive finally picked collingwood as my accent colour on my islands. i love it. My trim and ceilings are chantilly lace and walls are classic gray. the rest of my cabinets will be white. Im not sure what white to pick. Most likely going with carrara marble or callacatta marble. because I have a warm brown wood tile floor, Hope Im going in the right direction. It has taken me months to pic. hope you can help on the white cabinet delema. Oh ya, black trimmed windows and hardware

    • Hi Lisa,
      The white most used for carrara marble is Ben Moore Pure White. But if your trim is Chantilly Lace, I would also look at for cabinets. Get a sample of both and see which looks best. Hope this helps.

  40. Hi Kelly,
    Looking for a color that’s a notch or two darker than Collingwood that is in the same family for an open concept palette. Want some contrast but many warm grays tend to seem light or way dark.
    Thanks,
    Liz

  41. Hi Kelly ..I just painted my bedroom Collingwoood and ordered a Taupe carpet…my furniture is callled sir ba brown but it definitely has greys in it….I have all white trip and a beautiful stand up mirror with like a dark grey and white in it trimming…what color
    Blind or curtain would I use…and bedding?

    • Hi Patti,
      Collingwood is such a great neutral, you have many choices of colors to bring in. I love blues with Collingwood and greens work well also! I would stay away from yellows or orange- might clash if you get wrong shades. You can also go with whites for bedding and bring in an accent color such as blue or green for throws and pillows. Hope this helps!

  42. Hi Kelly,

    I have had a difficult time finding a good light soft color for my open family room and kitchen and hallway. The trim is a beautiful dark wood stain that matches the kitchen cabinets, the kitchen tiles have warm and cool brown tones, and kitchen backsplash is a cream travertine. The current wall color is a dark gold beige that is from the builder. I want to lighten and soften the rooms and try to cool the browns down a bit. I’m intrigued with Collingwood. I’ve tried agreeable gray and it was too cold. Revere pewter is possibly too dark. Edgecomb looks white and washed out. Do you have any suggestions? I would like to go with a white or off white for the ceiling.

    • Hi Courtney,

      Have you tried painting sample boards at home? I just finished a couple for my bedroom walls- really does help to see color in a large piece. I would try Collingwood- beautiful neutral that will work well with existing furnishings. If it seems dark, try BM Balboa Mist- just a bit lighter. Put color up against back splash and cabinets to make sure it works well. Good luck. I hope this helps!

  43. Hi Kelly,

    We are doing a new build and I have my kitchen cabinetry in Collingwood Grey which I love. I’m wondering if the qranite countertop that I put a deposit on which has some black swirls in it with a light grey/off white background would clash? The cabinets aren’t installed yet but I see a tan colour sometimes which I think would clash with the countertop and other times I see a light grey. Getting nervous about purchasing the countertop so any advise would be appreciated! Thanks!

  44. Hi Kelly,

    What color would you recommend painting your doors if you’re using Collingwood on the walls?

    Thank you, xoxo.

  45. Hi Kelly!
    I’m currently painting the main floor of my parent’s house and chose BM Collingwood. It looks beautiful in the kitchen but is coming off blue in the dining room and living room (north facing and not much natural light). Is there a color that is close to Collingwood but leans slightly warmer?

  46. Hello Kelly!
    We have painted out main floor Collingwood. Love it!
    Now we must paint our kitchen cupboards and are struggling.
    The lady at the paint store is recommending BM Thunder but it looks too grey to me. I like the colour of Silver Fox but she says it is not the same tone as Collingwood and doesn’t recommend it. I want a greige…I don’t want too grey/cool. We will have tile around the cupboards. I would appreciate any suggestions.
    Thanks!
    Sue

    • Hi Sue,
       Without seeing photos of your tile and kitchen, it is hard to select the best color. I did compare Collingwood with Thunder and actually, The Ben Moore Thunder would work well with the Collingwood. A tad darker, plus you will be using a semi gloss finish so it will be a nice contrast between the two colors. Another idea is to paint the cabinets in a lighter color such as Balboa Mist. Be sure to sample the color on poster board before you commit and paint. Hope this helps!
