The Best Gray Paint Colours (Kids): Benjamin & Sherwin
THE SERIES: PART 1 of 3
Before Pinterest, people didn’t pay as much attention to the colour palettes in their kid’s bedrooms. Whatever colour the wall happened to BE was how it stayed until the kids moved out 18 years later.
However, thanks to the online world, our eyes have been opened up as to how kids rooms can not only be fabulous spaces for kids to be in, they can ALSO be integrated into the style of the entire home!
(Follow me on Pinterest for some fab kids bedroom ideas and more!)
BTW, I know this blog post is old-fashioned in saying that these colours are for boys/him/he, as they’re well-suited for girls/she/her/them/they. This is an OLD blog post that I’ve tried to update and edit, but Google doesn’t like it if I change main titles/links so I have to be careful. I’m also slowly working on updating the graphics on all of my ‘kid-related’ blog posts. Please know that my heart’s in a good place :).
1. Kid’s GRAY Bedroom Paint Colour Palette
A NATURAL, NAUTICAL VIBE
I love the high contrast, but balanced vibe of this palette. Blue is a great colour when paired with gray, keeping things calm and collected while the red adds a dose of fun!
2. Bedroom Paint Colour Palette
This room feels calming and restful with its organic earth-toned palette. While the red and orange jazz things up, the overall look is a little bit rustic and a little bit rock and roll!

Let’s take a quick break to talk about paint samples…
Undoubtedly, you’ll be heading out in the near future to grab paint samples – stop right there! I want you to check out SAMPLIZE. Samplize offers peel and stick paint samples that are more AFFORDABLE, EASIER and more ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY than traditional paint pots. Here are just a FEW reasons why I recommend Samplize to my clients…
- Samples arrive ON YOUR DOORSTEP in 1-3 business days, depending on location
- At $6.99, they’re more affordable than the samples pots/rollers/foam boards that are needing for traditional paint sampling
- If you keep the samples on their white paper, you can move them around the room

4. Bedroom Paint Colour Palette

This palette takes a more subtle approach. And while I’ve got a darker charcoal gray with lighter warm gray/greige main walls and coral and navy blue accents, you can jazz up this palette almost any way you like with a wide range of accent colours!
5. Bedroom Paint Colour Palette
SOFT & SUBTLE
This palette takes a slightly softer, warmer gray approach with the muted soft country look.
