Benjamin Moore Stonington Gray Review & Inspiration

What We Love About Stonington Gray HC-170

Stonington Gray is a soft and stormy-looking gray, one of Benjamin Moore’s best-selling neutral colors, and a popular choice among interior designers. It’s a versatile light gray with barely-there cool undertones; the coolness recedes under bright, sunny lighting conditions, leaving a pale gray that’s quite neutral. Its traditional elegance has earned Stonington Gray a place in Benjamin Moore’s Historical Color collection.

Stonington Gray Is A Classic With Cool Undertones

Stonington Gray is a cool, neutral gray with a slight blue undertone. It's light enough to use as an overall wall color and offers good contrast against white trim or black accents. Stonington Gray’s subtle blue undertones will disappear in bright daylit spaces, leaving a classic, neutral light gray. Darker rooms will make this versatile color seem cooler and deeper.

Pair Stonington Gray with a deep blue like Hale Navy to emphasize the blue undertones. Contrasting coral or green accents may tone down the blue and give it a more neutral appearance.

Stonington Gray Inspiration For Modern Interiors

A popular choice for modern family homes, Stonington Gray makes a statement in open floor plans. It’s a cool neutral that’s the perfect wall color for cozy spaces like a bedroom or den. A gray that’s simultaneously on-trend and timeless, Stonington Gray is a modern color you can live with for years. It blends beautifully with marble and stone finishes, making it an elegant choice for a kitchen or bath.

Stonington Gray is a firm favorite in a living room, paired with either a white or stained trim. In a space with big windows, it has a lighter, airier look; a pink ceiling is the perfect cool-toned companion color:

Daylight tends to wash the blue undertones out of Stonington Gray, leaving a more neutral shade that works nicely on a traditional exterior:
