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.

It blends beautifully with marble and stone finishes, making it an elegant choice a kitchen or bath.
