Maybe Benjamin Moore hc82. Looks dull on paint chip but makes everything in the room look outstanding.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Sixteen Perfect Mirrors
This is some hot mirror-on-mirror action. Love it!
Becky Harris added this to Creating a Tablescape
Mirrors are always great over a mantle. I love the way they have propped several different mirrors together here.
Kit Pollard added this to Propped: When Not to Hang
The propped mantle-on-the-mirror is a classic—and with good reason. I like this version, especially, with its neutral colors and double mirrors.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Create Page-Turning Design with Books
Complete your mantle-scape with a stack of antique books. They add a sense of history and authenticity, plus they balance the remaining items on the mantle. Don’t have any old books? Check out your local flea markets or vintage shops. You can find them for a dime.
Lisa Frederick added this to Great Materials: Warm, Wonderful Pewter
This composition is as much about texture as it is about materials. The weathered look and heavy detailing of the pewter vase falls right in step with the books and mirror frames.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to 7 Areas to Accessorize With Style
5. Mantels. Avoid the temptation to center one large picture or one large mirror smack dab in the center. Layer mirrors or pictures and you can manipulate a stack of books to just the right height to balance out an adjacent object.
