Benjamin Moore’s Silver Half Dollar 2121-40: It’s soft but a true gray. It’s a strong choice for a neutral without any undertones.

Benjamin Moore’s Stonington Gray HC-170. I love that this gray is cool but not too blue, and it works in a great old house or in a modern loft. It stays fresh. Some grays can start to feel a bit sad, but this never gets dreary.

Benjamin Moore’s Winter Gates.

Sybille Schneider, Leroy Street

I love Winter Gates by Benjamin Moore. It has complexity and depth, and although it’s technically a neutral, it brings tons of personality to any space.

Farrow & Ball’s Purbeck Stone No. 275.

Farrow & Ball’s Purbeck Stone No. 275 has such depth. This tone really plays off natural materials like oiled woods and marbles that we specify in our projects. It has a chameleon-like quality that works with almost every color!

I have designed a whole new range of colors for the French brand Meriguet, called Carrére, which includes my favorite gray: Deep Sleep. It is not too dark, not too light.

Farrow & Ball’s Purbeck Stone No. 275 has such delicate light undertones that shift and dance when the light comes across it. This is one of the many reasons I adore using this color so much. It feels fresh and modern, although it has a feeling as if it’s from another time.
