paint colors kitchen

Hey there!  I’m glad you’re here! Today, I am waffling over paint colors for my kitchen redesign and looking for the best creamy gray paint.  Yesterday, I shared the updated light fixtures, and today, we’re narrowing down the creamy gray paint colors that have made the top of my list.

I am going to admit that I’ve painted my kitchen twice already in the last 8 years.  This will make 3 times.  I actually like the paint color it is, but it just doesn’t mesh with the end look I’m after, so a change is in order.

I will be adding in some upper cabinets that will be black and also adding some gold hardware, so I want a paint color that is light gray, but with a subtle creaminess.  So not cream.  And not gray.  But a warmer, creamier version of the standard gray (not specific at all, right?).  When it comes to the colors that topped my list, I have a few favorites that stand out.

I am specifically using Benjamin Moore paint (because it goes on like a dream) and have only investigated their colors.  After getting all of these colors together, I’m liking the ones that have less green in them – Alaskan Husky, Sheep’s Wool, and Owl Gray.  I’m leaning the most toward Sheep’s wool.  The name of it says exactly what I’m trying to achieve.  Natural, grayish white with a hint of warmth.  I think I can probably depend on the people who named it that we’re on the right page here, right?  Ha!

So, you know where I’m leaning, but if any of you have experience with any of these colors, I’d love to hear your feedback!

Or, if you have another favorite gray, let me know!

Have a fabulous day!
