At first glance just at the paint card, you’re probably thinking Coventry Gray is just another basic gray-nothing special, right?!  Coventry Gray is one of the most versatile mid-toned grays out there because even though it’s a gray, it’s a gray with a lot of depth. Let me just show you!

In spaces with a lot of natural light, Coventry Gray will lean a beautiful shade of blue/gray.

At dusk with a mix of natural and artificial light, Coventry Gray is a stunning and rich slightly warmed gray with slight hint of blue.

In spaces that do not have a lot of natural light, Coventry Gray will lean more warm gray. A stunning color as well!

While Coventry Gray really looks beautiful in almost any light, I think the “sweet spot” is in spaces with a mix of natural and artificial light like this below, where you can really see the richness and beautiful depth of this color.

Coventry Gray is also one the most popular gray cabinetry colors on the market today as well! For great reason, it’s perfection used on cabinets!

As you can see in the above two cabinetry images, the first image has a lot of natural light, so the color leans a little blue/cooler.  However, in the above kitchen with little natural light, Coventry Gray leans warm gray.

I always talk about the sign of a great paint color is if it works well both interior and exterior. As you can see, Coventry Gray looks incredible on the exterior as well!

  1. Hi there, I am trying to decide on Coventry gray or stonington gray for my living room and kitchen. I was also wondering what blue color would go nice as an accent wall in my living room ? I have lime green and burnt orange decor in my living room but Jamaica granit countertop in my kitchen. Please help!
