If you are looking for a stunning greige, then you should really consider using Edgecomb Gray from Benjamin Moore! It’s a creamy neutral color that looks lovely in well-lit spaces. This clean beige and gray color is refreshing and inviting when used in certain rooms in your home.
Not only is Benjamin Moore’s Edgecomb Gray one of my favorite greige paint colors, but it’s incredibly versatile and sets the stage for a gorgeous look in any room. This is a great go-to color! While it has an earthy, almost muddy color, it’s light enough that it pairs nicely with so many other colors too.
I just painted this color in my new home in the common spaces that cohesively run together: my kitchen, hallways, stairwell, entry way and upstairs loft area. It’s beautiful, but definitely leans warm gray in some lighting and beige in other lighting, making it a true greige color. As a chameleon color, I love Edgecomb Gray.
5 Secrets Every Home
… to transform your home into your dream home!
As I’ve mentioned before, Edgecomb Gray is a great combination of light gray and beige. It’s a creamy color that has undertones of greens and purples. It’s fantastic at picking up different colors and making each pop.
If you put BM Edgecomb Gray next to a red (like if you have red brick outside your windows!), it’s going to take on more of a pink tint than if you put it next to green, where the green undertones will really show through.
This paint color looks fabulous in any room, but it often looks the best when it’s in a well-lit space. Whether your room has an abundance of natural light or more artificial light, Edgecomb Gray will look terrific. So, it’s a no-brainer to add this to your list of favorite paint colours.
Some might not like it in rooms without any natural light, but I love it my upstairs loft area that has no windows. It does, though, have a lot of artificial light with can lighting, so that helps!

Revere Pewter is a crisp gray color that actually pairs well with Edgecomb Gray. Revere Pewter is a true gray and tends to work well with blue hues as well as reds.
While Revere Pewter is slightly darker than Edgecomb Gray, it’s not too dark. And you could always lighten Revere Pewter to 50% if you wanted that color, just lighter. I used Revere Pewter as my main neutral color in my previous home and loved it.
Revere Pewter is one of Edgecomb Gray’s complementary colors because they look splendid together. If you use the two colors together, you will find that the Revere Pewter really pulls out those gorgeous gray undertones in Edgecomb Gray.
