Help.. is there a perfect gray? I've been searching and searching. I have this issue where in my head I know exactly what I want but I can't find it in the real world. The first thing we are going to do when we get keys in 2 weeks is to paint 6 rooms in the house... to make it pretty simple, I'm going to choose 1 light gray that can be used all over the house: 3 bedrooms, the office and the family room/kitchen.
We live in Oregon where it's gloomy & dark from December-May so we need a color that is still light and airy and won't make our seasonal depression worsen
I'm wanting to stay away from taupes & beiges grays and work towards a cool tone.
TRULY, I just actually want light gray, a true light gray, but for some reason every gray I see is either brown gray or stone gray or blue gray or lavendar gray... Where are the regular grays people?!
I've been looking everywhere online but truly you can't quite get a feel for what the exact color will be not on a computer screen.
Here are a few I think I like..
Benjamin Moore's Olympic Quill via Restored Style
Benjamin Moore's Quiet Moments
Sherwin Williams Grey Screen
Any advice? Has anyone used a light subtle gray that they just love and think I will too?
