Benjamin Moore Pale Smoke & Smoke

I have been snooping around looking at rooms painted some blue/gray colors from Benjamin Moore.
I am sharing some pictures of rooms painted these colors.

 I STILL haven't decided on colors for my living room. Originally I wanted BM palladian blue (it was too aqua green), then SW rainwashed (looked too aqua on my walls too), SW Sea salt (too pale gray)...soooo I am searching for something neutral with a little blue/green. I think these colors- pale smoke and smoke may just be a little to cool and not enough green. Are you searching for a gray/blue/green too?

  1. I love these colors! Maybe you should consider mixing your own paint. Some of the blue that was too aqua and some of the pale smoke? Or find two colors you like in the same brand and ask the store to mix it for you... maybe 80% one color and 20% the other... Good luck on your choices!

  2. I think I am going with Sea Salt. I got 12 paint chips and taped them together so I could get an idea of how it would look on the wall. (I didn't want to spend $9 on a sample quart!) It looks great and is neutral enough to go with other colors.

  3. I am having the same dilemma deciding on a blue/green/grey colour and I have been going through many of the same colours that you are. I have found that Para Paints has a line of colours by Sarah Richardson and I am in love with Lichen. However, I am in Canada and not sure if this line of paint is available in the US. Have a look at this link http://www.sarahrichardsondesign.com/products/category/paint

    I can't wait to see what you finally decide. Good Luck!

  4. I love Sarah Richardson paints, but they don't sell them here. Lichen reminds me of bm palladian blue, I love it. I also like fog, retreat & Surf. Come back and let us know what you chose!

  6. I have a sample of BM Wedgewood Gray that I really like and is a little more green than the smoke you have shown. Unfortunately it is a little too green for a duvet cover set I have and Smoke may be just the colour to work. Thanks for posting.
