It’s true that white is a difficult color to pick when painting your entire house, white. But I find grey can also go wrong quickly when it comes to all the different choices. There are SO MANY options and I find it helpful when people share their top favourite choices for white and grey paint so here you go! These are my current fav’s. I hope they are helpful if you are needing a jumping off point for which greys you are going to sample on your walls or for your next project. You can also now march into the paint store and look like you know what you are doing with your already selected paint colours ….. unlike the many times I have stood in front of the color swatches with my mouth hanging open and in a dazed stupor when someone comes up to ask me if I need help and I’m like yes….. but I don’t even know where to start.
A side note about paint. It has been recommended to us by an actual professional (note I am not an actual professional lol) that it is always best to get your paint mixed at the actual place that makes the color you want. What I mean by this is, even though you could take the classic grey by Benjamin Moore color card into Sherwin Williams and ask them to mix that color for you, you may not get an EXACT match and for that you need to go to the actual store aka Benjamin Moore to have that color mixed.
I have included photo swatches from the internet for these colours, but when you compare them to what I have painted on the wall in the flip house you will note they look nothing alike. Do not pick your paint swatch off of an image you found on the internet, and always, always sample paint on your own walls or swatch it on a board and carry it around the room you want to paint to make sure it looks good in your space. Paint can and will look totally different from house to house and this is due to many factors such as lighting and decor etc.
