Benjamin Moore Stonington Gray

“Stonington Gray smiled rakishly at Olivia, his blue-black hair curling over his chiseled patrician cheekbones, freshly tanned from his voyage to the West Indies.

“You don’t seem to be struggling,” he purred, encircling her tiny waist with one large, thickly muscled arm. “In fact, I think you’re enjoying yourself.”

Stonington Gray, dashing Regency romance hero and bestselling Benjamin Moore paint color, is one of the company’s most versatile grays.

It has a touch of green, and it’s just a hair – just a hair! – lighter than Benjamin Moore Silver Chain, another popular gray.

Here’s what designer Claudia Benvenuto says about Benjamin Moore Stonington Gray:

I find that it gives you enough color without claiming too much attention. It doesn’t clash with anything you put against it, or detract from the art. It looks great against dark floors and helps make white trim look really crisp. I used a lighter shade of the same color for my bedroom and a darker shade for the bath.

Here’s Benvenuto’s living room, painted Stonington Gray:

And here’s her kitchen, also painted Stonington Gray, which, as she says, looks great with those dark floors:

Above, walls are painted Stonington Gray and the custom bed was built by Cheney Brothers Building & Renovation. I don’t know who makes the pillows, but Annie Selke’s Links fabric is similar.

Above, I’m jealous of who gets to play with all those built-ins. Walls are Stonington Gray and the cabinets are painted Benjamin Moore Willow. The Rittenhouse chandelier is from Arteriors and the bed is from Elte.

Above, the trim, wainscoting and stair risers are Stonington Gray, the walls are Benjamin Moore Lacey Pearl, and the banister is Benjamin Moore Almost Black.

In conclusion, dear reader, Stonington Gray looks sexy with pretty much anything, like a swashbuckler with an affinity for breeches.

    1. I have two rooms side by side – one is stonington grey and the other room is muslin and I love the way they look side by side. But I have no real authority on the matter!

  1. We are building a new house and I chose Stonington Gray as the main color – all hallways, entry way, great room, kitchen. Finding the right gray was A TON of work, but I love it! Had a blue undertone to it – which I like – otherwise, classic.
