Edgecomb Gray: Looking for the perfect greige paint color? Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray is a fantastic warm light gray paint color that works well in any room of your home. See how it compares to other popular light gray paint colors like Balboa Mist, Revere Pewter, and Classic Gray.
When we bought our house, all the walls were a dark khaki. We wasted little time painting the walls light gray paint colors. We wanted a warm, airy feeling to our house, so we chose warm light gray paint colors “greige” paint colors. After painting our living room and dining room Balboa Mist, we were happy with the airy yet warm hues. Even though we had already painted our living room (Behr’s White Chocolate,) I am seriously considering repainting it Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray so feels cleaner and warmer.
BENJAMIN MOORE EDGECOMB GRAY UNDERTONES
Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray is a nice airy yet somewhat muddy gray paint color. Its tawny tone is the perfect tone between beige and gray. Without paint samples next to one another, it is hard to compare paint colors, so below, I will compare side by side paint chips so you can see any undertones in Edgecomb Gray.
EDGECOMB GRAY VS. REVERE PEWTER
Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter and Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray are very similar greige paint colors; but, when you see the two paint colors next to one another you can see that Revere Pewter is much more saturated than BM Edgecomb Gray. There is significantly more brown in Revere Pewter than Edgecomb Gray, which almost has a greenish undertone comparatively.
To see the two paint colors close to one another, see Young House Love’s foyer where they painted the ceiling Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter and the walls Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray.

BENJAMIN MOORE GRAY OWL VS. BENJAMIN MOORE EDGECOMB GRAY
Benjamin Moore Gray Owl (see my complete review here) is one of Benjamin Moore’s most popular and best gray paint colors for good reason it is a lovely light gray paint color. However, it is quite different than Edgecomb Gray with its undertones of blue. Edgecomb Gray is a much warmer light gray paint color than Gray Owl, and is more of a greige paint color with much more beige in it.
BENJAMIN MOORE EDGECOMB GRAY VS. PALE OAK
Pale Oak is also a warm light gray paint color that has a similar feeling as Edgecomb Gray. Next to one another, you can see how much more beige Edgeomb Gray has than Pale Oak. If you want a warmer and more saturated gray paint color, then go with Edgecomb Gray over the cooler colors like Pale Oak, Classic Gray, and Balboa Mist.
EDGECOMB GRAY VS. BALBOA MIST:
Similar to Pale Oak, Balboa Mist is a light gray paint color that while being a warm gray paint color, pales in comparison to the warmth of Edgecomb Gray. Balboa Mist has significantly more bluish undertones than Edgecomb Gray.
EDGECOMB GRAY VS. CLASSIC GRAY:
Edgecomb Gray and Classic Gray are both wonderful light gray paint colors–two of my favorite paint colors and best gray paint colors. Classic Gray is much less saturated than Edgecomb Gray and a much lighter paint color than Edgecomb Gray, but it lacks the brownish undertones which gives Edgecomb Gray its warmth and tawniness. If you want a room that is cozier, then I would go with Edgecomb Gray like we plan to do in our fmaily room.
EDGECOMB GRAY VS. SHERWIN-WILLIAMS AGREEABLE GRAY
One of Sherwin-Williams most popular greige colors side by side with Edgecomb Gray, shows by contrast that Edgecomb Gray has significantly more of a yellowish/ greenish undertone than Agreeable Gray–I think leading to a very sophisticated palette. See my complete review of Agreeable Gray here.

- Abrasive Hand Pad
- Use this instead of sandpaper. Using sandpaper will rub off too much of the varnish and the stain on your oak wood trim will permeate your newly painted white paint.
- Paint Brush- use a 3″ angled trim brush
- I use this one (Purdy 3″ angle)
- Paint Trim Guard
- I use Red Devil 18″ Dual Edge Painter’s Edge Guard (You are going to want this if you have wall-to-wall carpeting or hardwood floors that you want to protect. I use it along with Painter’s Tape to ensure that I don’t have drips on my floor.
- Paint Cup
- Drop Cloth
- Painter’s Tape
- Paint Tray
- Having a real metal paint tray will make your life so much easier! Ditch the flimsy plastic ones which are always spilling. I don’t even use plastic liners in mine, I just rinse it out after each coat and call it a day! Plus, you save plastic from going to the landfill!
