Best Greige Paint Colours

Known for delivering beautiful results, greige can be found at the nuanced intersection of gray and beige.

If you love neutrals and grays, greige offers the best of both worlds. Keep in mind that a greige with a stronger gray influence will read more cool in a room, like Nimbus 1465. Conversely, if beige is the stronger colour in a chosen greige, the room will read more warm, like Edgecomb Gray HC-173.

Revere Pewter HC-172, a soft, welcoming greige paint colour, works either as a warm or a cool hue depending on a room’s lighting conditions. Revere Pewter is also a homeowner favourite and Benjamin Moore bestseller.

This mid-tone greige offers a dusky, neutral backdrop in any room. From pale pinks to rich browns to soft black paint colours, Pashmina AF-100 seamlessly brings everything together for a cohesive look.

Here Pashmina AF-100 pairs with Balboa Mist OC-27 on the trim for an effect that is both earthy and elevated.

Using greige alongside a white wall is a timeless design choice.

Here, Classic Gray OC-23 creates a focal point with an accent wall that highlights the architectural detail of a panelled wall. Simply White OC-117 in a matte finish on the wall and taupe Ranchwood CC-500 semi-gloss on the trim add even more design dimension to this serene bedroom.

Balboa Mist OC-27 is a perennial favourite greige.

“Balboa Mist OC-27 has a good dose of gray in it with a slightly warmer cast because of the colour’s hint of a red-violet undertone,” explains Andrea Magno, Benjamin Moore’s Director of Colour Marketing & Development. “However, under other lighting conditions Balboa Mist can skew a bit cooler, illustrating the importance of brushing the paint colour on your wall with a sample to make the best decision.”

Want a uniform, tailored look for your space? Simply extend the same paint colour from wall to trim in the same sheen—in this case, eggshell.

Greige and wood surfaces are truly design soulmates.

Walls painted in Wish AF-680 provide a warm, comfortable vibe when paired with any colour, but is made all the more lovely besides a wood table, as seen here, or in a room with wood-finished floors.

A balanced greige, Natural Cream OC-14 shifts from cool to warm depending on the lighting conditions in the room.

“There is a glow to this room we love,” says Andrea Magno, Director of Colour Marketing & Development. “The combination of the flat, ulti-matte sheen on the wall with the semi-gloss window trim is a clever way to make each colour stand out a bit more from one another.”

The flexibility of greige transcends beyond painted walls to kitchen cabinetry, as seen in this sun-lit kitchen.
