Pls. help with color, 'Soft gray' for bath cabinetry/trim?

16 years ago

Since no one is repsonding to my other thread I am trying again! Please help, suggestions wanted!

This is for a classic bath with subway & hex tiles (gray grout), all white fixtures, statuary marble vanity top. It's a hall bath and will mainly be used by my kids.

The one unusual element is a stained glass window.

The first image shows a photoshop mockup I did. I think it's probably too dark. I am thinking of a color like BM Edgecomb Gray or Revere Pewter, nothing too dark or heavy. More like a warm, creamy gray, so the tile and vanity top stand out slightly, but not too much contrast. (Think of the Farrow and Ball colors that look like old white but really have a lot of pigment in them.) My cabinet guy said his paint can be matched to BM colors, so I am trying to stick with that.

I don't think pulling in the blues or greens in wall color will work, and I don't want the cabinetry or trim to be pure white. The yellow based off-whites I have used in the past seem too yellow with all the other elements.

Here is a link that might be useful: my other post that didn't get much response!
