“A cloudy shade of blue with gray undertones reminds me of the quietness of a rainy day, when you can just curl up in bed and relax. It would turn any room into a refuge. Combine it with more intense shades of gray and blue if you want more of an impact. A salmon or a deep sage would look stunning against it.” Benjamin Moore
