Watch the video below of my Wickham Gray Colour Review
We designed this living room below which is painted Wickham Gray by Benjamin Moore. Such a soft and pretty colour, eh?!
This blue-green gray may appear more one colour than the other, depending on the lighting and what other decorative elements you pair with it in your interior decorating project.
Coventry Gray HC-169 & Edgecomb Gray HC-173
Notice from this graphic above that all 3 colours are called gray, but they are each very different from one another? When you compare paint colours you can get a better reading of each one. I tell clients that ‘Fifty Shades of Gray’ really is a thing! HA!
Best Whites To Pair With Wickham Gray
Cloud White CC-40 by Benjamin Moore
Chantilly Lace OC-65 by Benjamin Moore
Simply White OC-117 by Benjamin Moore
You may have noticed that my best whites for trim and ceilings are always from the same 6 – 8 white paint colours. (Did you recognize that or did I just let the cat outta the bag?)
The reason for this and similarly to many neutral tones, is that we don’t need all of the colours in a fan deck to get the right one. There are a small percentage of paint colours that work time and time again and when you know what they are, you don’t need to continually try to introduce new neutrals or whites.
When I see people doing that or hear designers say ‘I never pick the same colour twice because I want my clients to always have a unique paint colour and design.’, it means they don’t understand colour.
Think of all the other elements of a space that can be custom or one of a kind. Why do you think Revere Pewter is so popular? Because most people are not creative or boring? No! It simply works with so many fixed elements such as stone and tile as well as coordinating beautifully with many fabrics.
Sorry, didn’t mean to yell. 🙂
