COLOR SPOTLIGHT: BENJAMIN MOORE COVENTRY GRAY

Hi Remodelaholics!  Cyndy here from The Creativity Exchange back with another Color Spotlight.  If you missed my my last post about the most popular black paint colors, you can find that here.

For today’s Color Spotlight, I wanted to highlight one of the most popular mid-toned grays on the market.

 

Benjamin Moore Coventry Gray is an all-star gray that has been extremely popular in the last five years because it’s such a beautiful and versatile color.

At first glance just at the paint card, you’re probably thinking Coventry Gray is just another basic gray-nothing special, right?!  Coventry Gray is one of the most versatile mid-toned grays out there because even though it’s a gray, it’s a gray with a lot of depth. Let me just show you!

In spaces with a lot of natural light, Coventry Gray will lean a beautiful shade of blue/gray.

At dusk with a mix of natural and artificial light, Coventry Gray is a stunning and rich slightly warmed gray with slight hint of blue.

In spaces that do not have a lot of natural light, Coventry Gray will lean more warm gray. A stunning color as well!

While Coventry Gray really looks beautiful in almost any light, I think the “sweet spot” is in spaces with a mix of natural and artificial light like this below, where you can really see the richness and beautiful depth of this color.

Coventry Gray is also one the most popular gray cabinetry colors on the market today as well! For great reason, it’s perfection used on cabinets!

As you can see in the above two cabinetry images, the first image has a lot of natural light, so the color leans a little blue/cooler.  However, in the above kitchen with little natural light, Coventry Gray leans warm gray. I always talk about the sign of a great paint color is if it works well both interior and exterior. As you can see, Coventry Gray looks incredible on the exterior as well!

Thanks so much for stopping by today and if you’re interested in seeing more beautiful paint colors, I just shared a beautiful new home project that I color consulted on that you can see here on my blog. In that post, I walk readers through our process for choosing paint colors.  You can also find me on Facebook here, where I share lots of paint color inspiration.
