Benjamin Moore greige paint colors are some of the most popular colors you will find. Today we will explore the very best from Benjamin Moore and why they are so popular!
I love Benjamin Moore colors. They are so pretty and just about any store can color-match them if you have a favorite brand. If not you should check out the Benjamin Moore paint lines, they are very high quality.
What color is Greige?
Greige as a word is the combination of gray and beige. It’s a warm color of gray with beige undertones.
Don’t get this confused with a beige with gray undertones, that color would be a taupe. When you add gray undertones to a color you get a more mellow color, something that is more muted.
That is not the case with greige. You have a gray color with beige undertones and it creates a warm and cozy feeling.
Is Greige Still Popular in 2023?
Absolutely it is! According to designers, this color is holding strong, if not stronger, than it has in recent years. It’s like wrapping your home in a giant hug.
The only time I wouldn’t use this color is if it comes across muddy. Some homes with certain light a greige color can look muddy. This happened with my home. If that is the case try a color that has cooler undertones. A blue-gray paint color.

How to know if a paint color is right for you?
The best way to judge if a color is good for you then you will want to put a swatch on the wall and look at it over a few days. Look at it in different lights and decide if you really like it.
You can do this by getting a sample from the paint store and using a brush to put it up on the walls, but then you are left with a can that you can’t do anything with. Those samples are used with poor-quality paint and aren’t meant for use on your walls permanently.
I recommend going with Samplize. They are a company that will send you a 12X12 peel-and-stick swatch of a paint color that you can stick to the wall. When you are done just peel it off and throw it away.
It’s easy and much less messy!

This is the color I chose for my home office/den. I painted it and sometimes it looks beige and sometimes it looks gray depending on the time of day and light.

This is a beautiful greige paint color that pulls a little yellow/green. Pale Oak is a stunning color that was definitely on my short list of paint colors to paint my house.

This is by far the most popular warm gray paint color. It’s also a recommended color for staging your home to sell. Revere Pewter is almost a perfect neutral, which is what makes it so popular.

Gray Owl is one of those paint colors that can go either warm or cool depending on the amount of natural light your room receives.
The more natural light the cooler the color tends to pull with a little bit of a blue undertone. But in rooms where artificial light is prominently used this color is just stunning!

Edgecombe Gray is sort of in between Pale Oak and Revere Pewter when looking at the lightness/darkness with very similar undertones.

As you can see from the LRV number White Dove is very bright! That’s why it also made the shortlist for colors in my home. What it came down to was this color is almost white and very close to my baseboard color so I chose Classic Gray.
