Edgecomb Gray – My FAVE Greige Paint Colour
Greige is a tricky one. SO many people think that when they choose greige, they’re going to get this perfect blend of beige and gray, but that’s rarely the case! It’s kind of like mixing red wine and white wine – you don’t necessarily get a nice rose (but hey, I’ll drink it anyway).
So, when I’m looking for a relatively well-balanced greige that doesn’t pick up the typical undertones of either taupe or green – I look at Edgecomb Gray. Sure, like any greige, it can pick up a whole WHACK of undertones as it’s easily influenced by its environment/exposure/etc…but generally speaking – it’s pretty damn greige!
I used Edgecomb Gray throughout a local client’s home as shown here in Colour Review: Edgecomb Gray, so when my e-design client was looking for the perfect colour for her home, it was one of my TOP suggestions.
Before, the room felt weighed-down and a bit drab…
After, it looks MUCH more inviting and warm!
Before, the colours were a bit heavy and flat for the treed landscaping outside the windows…
After, when paired with Pashmina in the eating area/kitchen, the palette is way softer and more organic looking – and notice how the wood floors came to life!

To the right of the eating nook above is the kitchen. I have a blog post dedicated ENTIRELY to this kitchen makeover, so you’ll want to check that out once you’re done here, but I’ll give you a sneak peek…
I know, I’m such a tease (ask Tim…), but the kitchen turned out so cool that it really deserves its own spot in the limelight. If you want to check it out, you can see it here (but finish this one first!)
My client ALSO wanted to change the dining room into more of a casual family room, and let me say that it’s a good thing she did…the only thing the old dining room would inspire me to do is drink more.
Ummm, can I get a HELLS YEAH on changing this into a family room?
So there you have it, another paint colour transformation – And don’t forget to check out the oak kitchen makeover!
