The Best Blue, Green, Gray Paint Colours (blends) (Partner post to The Best Benjamin Moore Gray Paint Colours) When it comes to the best paint colours, you'll be hard-pressed to find brands better than Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore.

Every home needs a go-to neutral wall color. Joanna loves using grays in her homes for the main living spaces. Some of her favorites are Sherwin Williams Mindful gray, Oyster Pearl, and Passive Gray. Repose Gray is one shade lighter than Mindful and would look fabulous for an open living space. A friend of mine just chose this color for her open living & dining room and she loves it! Grab a paint sample first though before painting every wall! :)
The Summerhill, plan #1090 www.dongardner.com - Double dormers echo the dual-arched portico, as twin sets of tapered columns provide architectural detail in this lavish exterior.

Ceiling treatments enhance the dining room and foyer, and a large, rear porch to enjoy Mother Nature rests off the master bedroom.
"Green is a soothing color. Traditionally, it's associated with healing. This is a sage green that stays muted, even with the sun on it (Benjamin Moore Creekside Green). It makes me feel relaxed. It's not a color that is shouting to be noticed. It's calm and comfortable." -Amelia T. Handegan
