Gray + White

It’s everywhere and it’s as neutral as it gets these days.

It’s calming, soothing and classic.

Gray and White…a great combo if you are looking for the basics to build on. Any colour can be an accent colour.

They are perfect colours for re-sale, for both interiors and exteriors.

A Soft Gray Kitchen

Sometimes the smallest details make the biggest difference.

This kitchen is simple and charming, it’s amazing what some Benjamin Moore paint can do.

The walls are painted in a soft blue gray (2131-60 Silver Gray) and they set off great against the raw wood edge on the shelves. The classic white subway tile has a continuous feel with the white dishes on shelves. The tiles have gray grout, which ties in with the stainless rangehood and appliances.

Crisp white cabinets (0C-68 Distant Gray) are the perfect pairing with wood block counters.

Just for some fun, the stool is painted a bright pink (2087-40 Autumn Red) and it matches the fun fuscia accessories.

Gray Painted Island

Is your kitchen white, bland and boring? Updating hardware can help and give it an instant facelift, but so can painting out your kitchen island in a gray tone. You probably notice it happening a lot in kitchen design these days, because it really does add a lot of style to a kitchen.Screen Shot 2015-07-22 at 3.39.37 AMTry CSP-45 Street Chic by Benjamin Moore

The Victorian also has a gray island in the kitchen, that contrast with the stark white wall cabinets. The gray exterior paint, and the island paint are the same color: C2's  Titanium, but with different percentages.

Silver Tones In a Bedroom

Soft silver grays make a bedroom feel effortlessly cool and breezy. Mixed with airy whites, metallics, gray/white fabrics and watery blues…this may be the paint colour your bedroom needs.

It’s slightly more labor-intensive than popping open a can of latex, but lime wash (a pure concoction with no harmful VOCs) yields a gorgeous, sun-kissed stucco look that’s been prized for centuries. It’s eco-friendly too!

An Instant Way To Make Your Ceiling Look Higher

Did you know that you can trick the eye with colours?

This kitchen trick works great with low to standard height ceilings. If you paint the base cabinets in a dark colour and a light colour on the upper cabinets it visually lifts the ceiling. We recommend using a lighter colour on the walls and ceiling as well.
