AF-715 Dolphin

fafcc1940a33b4351afe99e51e69ed04By now we all know that gray is the new black of home decor. It’s neutral, still warm without any yellow or orange undertones and is extremely calming. This warm gray AF-715 Dolphin is from Benjamin Moore’s Affinity Colour Collection and it is a classic.


This bathroom is stunning and the wall tile is the jumping off point, its where the wall colour came from and ties in the creamy counter tops.

These barn doors have been painted out in AF-715 Dolphin, so much warmer than the traditional white doors.


We love how the lower cabinets and island in this open concept kitchen have been painted out in AF-715 Dolphin. Looks great with the white walls and warm hardwood floors.

691705bdb107e5e102ae124910e71a2fThis home has been transformed by this classic gray AF-715 Dolphin and fresh white trim/garage doors. A house suitable of the Hamptons, in Ontario.

2134-30 Iron Mountain


For kitchen cabinets, choose a deep, rich hue like Iron Mountain 2134-30, shown here in ADVANCE, Satin. This neutral color complements a variety of finishes, including stainless steel and polished chrome.

A Rustic Kitchen


Create a rustic yet refined look with deep neutrals like Stonington Gray HC-170 (shown on the walls in Aura, Matte) and Sparrow AF-720 (shown on the wainscoting in ADVANCE, Satin). Where might you use these complementary colors?

This custom Kitchen is fantastic, but would you expect anything less from Sarah Richardson?

Builder basic gets an infusion of custom furnishings, vintage lighting and a healthy dose of sophisticated city chic style. We love how they painted the main cabinets in a light soft gray and the island is a darker gray.

Let a neutral palette serve as the base for an eclectic mix of black-and-white and colorful artwork. Here Benjamin Moore used Sparrow AF-720 in ben (flat) for the wall and Pashmina AF-100 in ben (semi-gloss) for the wainscoting and trim.
