Benjamin Moore’s Edgecomb Gray HC-173 might just be the perfect color choice:

It is a very warm and welcoming neutral color:

Like its fan deck neighbor Revere Pewter, Edgecomb Gray does  look grayer in natural light and more beige in rooms without a lot of sunlight.

This paint color is very versatile. You can use use it with pops of color, (it works well with lots of colors)!:


Or keep as a more neutral look:

I don’t think I have ever seen an Edgecomb Gray room I did not like:

I have also suggested this color for a client’s entry:

Isn’t it gorgeous?  It’s a wonderful alternative to beige and gray. It is now on my official list of Kelly’s Five Favorite Neutrals!  Have you used this paint color in your home? Wouldn’t it look beautiful in your bedroom?
