Best Home Decor Paint Colors: Edgecomb Gray

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.

Color Undertones

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!

Edgecomb Gray vs. Revere Pewter

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.

Adding Edgecomb Gray To Your Space

One thing that I can’t get over with Benjamin Moore’s Edgecomb Gray is that it seriously looks terrific in almost every space! It’s like they found the perfect greige that can never look bad in bright spaces.

Okay, maybe it could look bad somewhere, but I have NEVER seen it look anything but welcoming and inviting. Check out these photos to see how amazing of a color it truly is.

Entry Way

Nothing is going to add some charm and make guests feel invited more than a beautiful entryway or foyer. Edgecomb Gray adds a small touch of color that this room needs without making it feel overwhelming when you walk in.

When you see this lovely foyer, you can tell it has some character and you can really see how fantastic Edgecomb Gray looks with Kendall Charcoal. It’s a wonderful combination, and Nina Hendrick did a tremendous job pairing these colors!

Young House Love added some freshness to their entryway by choosing Edgecomb Gray and paired it with the colors Revere Power, Simply White and Tranquility. As you can see, the pop of color from the accessories goes perfectly with the paint.

In The Kitchen

As you can see in this photo, the kitchen cabinets have taken on a darker color with the Edgecomb Gray, and it is incredible. They complimented the wall hanging cabinets by using the contrasting color of  Ashley Gray on the island.

  1. Is there a beige colour that pairs well with Edgecomb as my Shaker Beige clashes with Edgecomb seems to enhance the green undertone. Not sure if the problem is the orange or pink undertone in Shaker Beige so what undertone should we be looking at in the beige that would go with Edgecomb.

    1. Hi,

      I’m not sure which door you’re referring to, but Laura’s has painted a door SW Comfort Gray with Edgecomb Gray walls.
      Hope this helps!

  2. Hi Laura,

    I love all the comments. So informative. I am so glad I stumbled upon this and will be sure to talk it up to friends. I have a quick question for you. I need your advice. I am looking to do a Greige like Edgecomb Gray in my kitchen. I have dark cabinets with black/silver window valances. But I wanted to do an accent wall to make it pop like a Nantucket Gray. Would these two colors go together?

    Thank you.

  3. Enjoyed your articles. Not sure which grey to go with still. Most of our rooms are east or west facing. However, there aren’t many windows to let the light in the bedrooms. The kitchen/dining room are east/south-east facing and gets dark in the evening. The living room is west-facing.

    1. Hi Ramola! I would love to know what gray you decided to go with. I also have and East/West facing home and I find all the articles talk about North/South. Edgecombe gray is beautiful at certain times of the day but looks very very beige during other times.

  4. does Edgecomb gray work with medium oak trim? I have a soutwest facing bedroom and I have made two mistakes already painting this room. Revere Pewter looked muddy and Nantucket gray is much too green. It does have the gray/green i love but it is too green for me. Thought I would try Edgecomb gray. P.S. I have had Benjamin Moore Sundial in that room for 10+ years and the color really worked well but it is time for a change.

  5. I stumbled across your site while trying to research complimentary colors to Edgecomb Gray! I’m so happy I did! My neglected house finally received a paint job in Edgecomb Gray and it’s awesome! The color is perfect for the North facing formal areas and the casual South side. Am debating,about Revere Pewter for the south facing master bedroom…but have a ton of wallpaper to tear down first. My current balusters are painted white, and at one time they were stained a dark brown. Would Revere Pewter be a good choice to repaint them with the Edgecomb Gray walls? The top and bottom railings are still the dark stained wood, which I like as it goes with my antique decor. Thank you.

  6. Can you put revere pewter and edgecomb in the same room together? I have a very open concept house and want to to one wall slightly darker but not a huge difference

  7. Laura, how does this color read in rooms with very little light? We have lots of trees and standard size windows; and live in the north, so our winters, especially, are overcast.
    Your loft area, for example, without all the lights on, how does it look there? Thank you so much. Our creamy beige is begging to be replaced, but I’m hesitant to darken our home any more.
    And thank you for collecting these images from so many beautiful homes!

    1. Hi there! I actually LOVE it in our loft area because it’s not too dark and there’s plenty of artificial light with the can lighting and the lamp. It’s one of the spaces I love it in most! I think you just want to make sure you have plenty of EITHER natural light OR artificial light. I’ve heard it looks muddy in less lit areas, but it looks good in all of the areas of my home because it’s well-lit even if there aren’t any windows. Hope that helps!

  8. Edgecomb Gray is a prettier shade of gray than most other grays I’ve seen. I think I’ve lived with so much and seen so much gray, I’m simply over it.

    1. I agree that too much gray can get old, which is why I kind of love that it reads beige in some lights and a really warm gray in others! It definitely warms up an otherwise cool space!

  9. I was so excited about Edgecomb Gray when I first started reading about it and seeing all the pictures. I bought a sample can, painted my poster board to hang around in different rooms but I have been so disappointed. To my eye it’s just a dirty yellowish color. I must be missing something because everyone else seems to think it’s gorgeous. I may try painting one wall just to see if that makes a difference in my perception of this paint color.

    1. Hmmm … I wonder if the color that is on your walls already is making it read yellow in any way? My previous wall color was a light yellow and while it was being painted on, it was hard to tell the different between the Edgecomb Gray and the Yellow! I was a little worried. But once it completely covered the yellow, it no longer looked yellow to me. But definitely beige in some spots.

  10. I’m loving the edgecomb gray in your home! I have found that the lighting makes a big difference in my house. Does the edgecomb gray take on a more beige color when it is a south facing room and more gray in a north facing room or the other way around? Thanks!

    1. Hi Julie, my room that looks the most beige is a southwest facing room. So, I think it will look a little more warm in south facing rooms. (And that’s what I’ve read online too.)
