The Best Benjamin Moore Paint Colours for a Nursery – when you don’t know what the heck you’re having!
Benjamin Moore Gray Owl
A soft, light gray with subtle undertones of blue/green. Read all about it here: Colour Review of Gray Owl.
Benjamin Moore Gray Cashmere
A soft light blend of gray, blue and green. Whereas the dominant colour in Gray Owl is gray, you’ll find that the gray in this colour takes a bit of a backseat, as the blue and green shift.depending on the exposure of the room.
Benjamin Moore Palladian Blue
A beautiful blue/green/gray blend AGAIN. However, this is a COLOUR FIRST colour – it will never be mistaken for gray. The gray in it just calms it down, so it’s a more grounded feeling rather than a teal or aquamarine.
Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter
This is a more earth-toned warm gray compared to the cooler tones above. Be careful with Revere Pewter in a low-light room. Read all about it here: Colour Review of Revere Pewter
Benjamin Moore Chelsea Gray HC 168
Feeling brave? This is a beautiful, medium-toned charcoal that grounds a room, whether it’s a feature wall or on EVERY wall.
Benjamin Moore Timid White OC-39
If you want something a bit warmer, Timid White is a great way to get a creamy/yellow look – without going into the day-glo sunshine range!
You don’t have to take these accent colours quite literally. They are just approximate examples of accent colours that are fun, kid-oriented and gorgeous! If you prefer a more NEUTRAL approach, you can take one or NONE from the above and just go to STEP 3.
- If you’ve chosen 1 accent colour from Step 2, choose 1-2 neutrals
- If you’ve chosen 2-3 accent colours from Step 2, choose only 1 neutral
A few other things to think about when creating your palette…
- North-facing rooms that are low-light don’t handle cooler, heavier colours as well
- South-facing rooms can benefit from cool-toned paint colours
- Size matters! Pay attention to the depth of your paint colour to make sure it suits your room
