Over the weekend, my sister-in-law, who is moving house, asked me for a gray paint recommendation. I immediately thought of Benjamin Moore’s Gray Owl, which I’ve seen all over Pinterest for several years. I haven’t had the opportunity to use it myself (we previously used Natural Gray by Behr in the kitchen & nursery) but knew that it was a true gray that didn’t have any crazy blue, purple or green undertones like many of the other popular grays.
I’m already fantasizing about what MY new house is going to look like and how I’m going to decorate it, even though we are moving into a rental apartment for the next 10 months. My dream house will have an open plan main floor and I’m envisioning using Owl Gray throughout with lots of chunky bright white trim. GAH! I’m so excited to have a new place to decorate! A girl can never be too forward-thinking, right!?!
For those of you who are currently looking for a gray paint or simply dreaming of designing a new space like me, let me introduce you to Gray Owl. I think you’re going to love it!

You’ll notice that this particular gray works well with wood tones as well as the more commonly used white. In fact, from what I can tell, it works beautifully with all tones and in all different lighting conditions.
Have I persuaded you to choose Owl Gray for an upcoming paint job? Or have you already used Gray Owl in your home? Do you have a paint color that you absolutely swear by? I’d love to hear from you! Share in the comments or post to Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #grayowl
