Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray Review & Inspiration

What We Love About Edgecomb Gray HC-173

Edgecomb Gray is one of Benjamin Moore’s go-to neutrals. It's a warm paint color that sits between gray and beige - the perfect pale greige. Part of Benjamin Moore’s Off-White Collection, it amplifies the light in large, open spaces for a light and airy effect. Edgecomb Gray’s understated hint of beige makes it ideal for use as a unifying wall color throughout the home. Clean, crisp, and modern, this pale gray creates a stylish backdrop for mid-century furnishings.

Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray’s Warm Undertones

Edgecomb Gray is a neutral taupe color with slightly warm undertones. Depending on the type of lighting in a room, Edgecomb Gray will favor its warm beige tones more or less. If you have north-facing light, you can expect to show more of its gray base. In a south-facing room or warm afternoon sunshine, it will appear distinctly warmer, even beige. With its high level of reflectance, this color definitely belongs in the off-white collection; however, its warm undertones provide a reliably greige tint most of the time. Edgecomb Gray is a highly versatile color that works beautifully in open-plan homes and looks amazing throughout the day. It also suits many different design styles, from farmhouses to modern or coastal looks.

The Best Greige For Any Room

Edgecomb Gray can shift in tones throughout the day, from a warm beige to a beautiful light and fresh gray. This makes it a serene wall color for open floor plans, and an interesting backdrop for bold colors.
