Benjamin Moore Stonington Gray is a modern and fresh medium-toned gray with a slight blue undertone. It’s one of my favorite paint colors and I’ve used it throughout my home.
Stonington Gray (BM HC-170) is a beautiful medium gray with cool, blue undertones. It stays perfectly gray in most spaces unless it’s paired with a lot of white and cool (north facing) light, where it can look a little blue.
Both the picture above and the one below are really good true-to-life representations of the color and allow you to see how it pairs with both white (the trim) and wood tones (the picture frames).
My living room and most of the bedrooms upstairs are painted with Stonington Gray. It looks lovely paired with crisp white trim but does equally well with stained trim, too.

In my toddler’s room, I have paired Stonington Gray with a navy blue accent wall (Sherwin Williams Naval). Because of its cooler tones, it’s the perfect gray to complement this deep navy shade.
Our guest room has a lot of light colors and get’s a TON of bright light so you can see how Stonington Gray looks a lot lighter in here.
A lot of people ask me for Sherwin William’s equivalents of my favorite paint colors, Stonington Gray included. My answer is always to pick the color you like then get it mixed in the brand of your choice. So, if you want to use Stonington Gray all you have to do is go to the Sherwin Williams store and ask them to mix up Benjamin Moore Stonington Gray for you. They have access to all the color codes in their computers and can color match to their own brand of paints. I do this all the time!
If you are looking for a modern, bright and fresh gray that’s a little on the cooler side then Benjamin Moore Stonington Gray is for you. I love it throughout my home and definitely recommend it!
If you need a gray that’s warmer, then another one of my favorite paint colors is Sherwin Williams Repose Gray. You can read all about it and see photos of it in my home here. If you are looking for a much lighter gray (that’s almost white), my new favorite paint color is Benjamin Moore’s Paper White which I recently used in my master bedroom. If you’re thinking Stonington Gray vs Gray Owl, you might want to read more about that and read the comments too, which are very helpful!
