Pair with shades of teal, gold, and blush pink.  For hardware try brass or antique gold metals.  On trim, you can’t go wrong with a crisp white like Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace or a soft white like Benjamin Moore Steam. 


With an LRV (Light Reflective Value) just shy of 43, it has enough depth to feel moody but thanks to a hint of blue/green it doesn't feel heavy or gloomy. Technically, Boothbay Gray is a cool color but you will notice a slight green hint in rooms with direct sunlight. In north facing rooms, this color will look cooler with a more pronounced blue undertone.

Looking to add just a hint of color to your kitchen. Try Boothbay Gray on your island. It will break up the cabinets but won't overwhelm the space. It's a great option if you don't have a lot of natural light but still want a pop of color.

Want to see if Boothbay Gray will work in your space? The best way to find the right color for you home is to try a sample before making a commitment. Remember that lighting has a huge effect on how we see color. You can purchase a tester pot and paint the wall or order a peel-and-stick sample of Benjamin Moore Boothbay Gray from Samplize. They are made with two coats of real paint making them100% accurate representation of the final color on your walls. Each easy-to-peel paint sample can be repositioned multiple times to different locations on your wall to compare how it may look in different lighting or to other colors.
