Benjamin Moore - Edgecomb Gray? Is there a lighter color?
October 23, 2012 in Design Dilemma
BM Edgecomb Gray appears so dark in pictures. We have painters ready to paint our light filled kitchen and family room this color. We would like something lighter than this...but all the colors seem to get too beige. Any ideas on different BM colors that are a bit lighter?

Sorry about my last post. I just saw "grey" and knew BM Sea Haze color was light and pretty. I just looked up edgecomb gray and realized that it is a much warmer tone than this.

Not sure it is any lighter, but Revere Pewter has just a tad less beige in it and is a lovely, versatile color. But I love Edgecomb Gray too. Both are quite light. Are you sure you aren't just reacting to how dark it looks next to white primer? Here are photos of a few rooms with Revere Pewter, which depending on the light can look quite different shades:

I painted my sunny kitchen Edgecomb Gray a month ago. I love it! It reads as a very pale blue in the morning, very pale green at night. It's all in the lighting in your room...
