benjamin moore whale gray + gray bathroom cabinetry

After posting this gray cabinetry shot in my portfolio last week, I got a TON of emails asking what paint color was used (it’s Benjamin Moore Whale Gray, one of my absolute favorites!)  Going darker gray was a pretty big step for my client, but once she saw how well it picked up the grey veining in the honed Carerra marble countertops, not to mention how gorgeous it looked with a white bowl sink and fabulous lucite drawer hardware, she was so excited she did! 

I think making the decision to go with Whale Gray was a bit easier for my client, since this was in a downstairs guest bathroom – a perfect place to go gray on your cabinets if you love color but are scared of making a color commitment in your kitchen.  From pale, wispy gray all the way to bold charcoal, you just can’t go wrong with gray cabinetry in the bathroom.  Here are a few beautiful examples:

    Where did you get the glass pulls on your vanity? I want to do a combination of glass knobs and glass pulls on my daughter's dresser and I love the pull you used! That is exactly the look I am going for in her lavender and gray room. Thanks.

    Erica – those were actually antique store finds and we were so lucky to have found two!
