Soft Chamois Colour Review
This off white colour may appear more beige or more gray in colour depending on the lighting and what other decorative elements you pair with it in your interior decorating project. Looking at the colour comparisons below will help give you a better idea of where Soft Chamois fits.
Classic Gray OC-23 & Ballet White OC-9
Classic Gray is another fantastic neutral that I have used in a previous client’s project. This an extremely popular soft gray that looks amazing in so many spaces. Because of its’ popularity, I have already reviewed this colour. You can find the review here.

Best Whites To Pair With Soft Chamois
Snowfall White OC-118 by Benjamin Moore
Simply White OC-117 by Benjamin Moore
Chantilly Lace OC-65 by Benjamin Moore
I tend to have around 10 white paint colours that are my best whites for trim and ceilings. You don’t need all of the thousands of whites available to you to get the right one and you definitely don’t need to mix two different whites or use only a certain percentage of paint colour to get the right one for you.

I can assure you that the best colour for your project already exists, you just need to know 5 Steps on how to choose the right paint colour the first time.
Soft Chamois pairs beautifully with each of these whites, offering three subtly different looks.
Fabulous Colour Combinations
I went for a very natural palette today that reminds me of the beach and different shades of natural stones. But of course, you can pair Soft Chamois with bolder and contrasting colours as well.
