Lake House Blue and Gray Paint Colors
I have been meaning to update my Lake House Paint Colors post for forever! Or for about two years since we moved in at least. Paint colors can be so tricky to pick out and by far one of the most asked questions I get on the blog. I did a paint color post way back when we were in the framing stage of building about the colors I picked, but I thought it would be helpful to show photos of each of those colors in action!

So first off, I’ll put this handy little graphic that shows all our colors in one spot. I like to make sure all the colors in a home flow together, so I think it’s really important to lay them all out and see how they coordinate. Also, I should add we have a TON of natural light in our home. We have wall to wall windows and a south facing view, so colors tend to look lighter and less saturated in our home than they appear on the paint chip. I always recommend painting a test swatch on your wall (or piece of poster board) to see what it will look like in your own home.
Lake House Blue and Gray Paint Colors
Helpful hint the code SW is for Sherwin Williams and BM is for Benjamin Moore. Also, I linked to each room so you can check out more photos of each color.
Sherwin Williams 7057 Silver Strand – We used this in our master bedroom and bath. It’s a really pretty silvery/blue/grey that changes a bit depending on the light. Here it is in our master bedroom.
Sherwin Williams 6217 Top Sail – This is a really soft pretty aqua that we used in my parent’s beach house. My daughter fell in love with it, so we used it in her beachy tween room. It is a great coastal color that still feels neutral. You can see it here in my parent’s kitchen as well.
Benjamin Moore HC – 165 Boothbay Gray – This is one of my favorite colors in our home. I used it in our mudroom and it’s the perfect soft blue/gray color with a deeper hue than the Silver Strand. Our master bedroom and mudroom are on either side of our main living room area so you get a peek at both colors and I love the contrast against all our white trim work.
Sherwin Williams 7029 Agreeable Gray – This is one of the best neutral greige colors. It is warm without feeling too beige, and it doesn’t have yellow or purple undertones, which can be a tricky problem with grey paint colors. It’s really one of those colors that goes anywhere, and is a perfect transition color for in-between spaces like hallways, etc. We used it in our basement family room – see more photos here.
Sherwin Williams 7024 Functional Gray – My son actually picked this color for his room (out of 3 or 4 gray options I gave him) and I must say he has good taste! I was worried originally this was going to feel a little dark, but it really makes the room cozy and has a nice masculine vibe.
Sherwin Williams 7006 Extra White – It’s tempting to think all white paint is just white paint, but there are a zillion shades of white to choose from, and it can really be one of the harder paint colors to pick. Extra White won my heart after an exhaustive search. It is a really true white without any blue or yellow undertones, but it doesn’t feel cold or stark either. All of our trim, white cabinetry, board and batten, and ceilings are this color. You can see more of it in our living room here. Lake House Blue and Gray Paint Colors
Benjamin Moore HC 155 Newburyport Blue – We went with navy cabinets in our basement wet bar and this is nice deep navy color.
Sherwin Williams 9140 Blustery Sky – I get a ton of questions about this paint color on our kitchen island and our master bathroom cabinets. It is one of those colors that looks completely different at all times of the day. It is much brighter when the sun comes out and has more of a teal look, but on rainy days it looks much more gray.
Here’s another look at it in our bathroom.
Sherwin Williams 0055 Light French Gray – Lastly we used this pretty gray paint for our pantry and laundry room cabinets. I wanted to switch it up from all the white cabinetry and these smaller spaces were a great place to add a little something different.
So there you go – I hope that helps you see what each paint color looks like live and in action! Like I said, colors can look SO different based on lighting, flooring, other items in the room, etc… So, be sure to try a sample in your own space before making any major decisions! I hope you found this post about Lake House Blue and Gray Paint Colors helpful!

Lake House Blue and Gray Paint Colors
Can you please tell me what Brand and Color your kitchen and living room floors are? Just LOVE!
I am wondering what color you painted the dining chairs in the lake house. You mention gray chairs…on the computer they look white. Can you tell me the color you used. thanks
Hello, beautiful home! What color are your kitchen walls? I love the Newburyport Blue on the kitchen cabinets !
I meant wet bar! What color are your walls in that area! Sorry!
Hi, I’m trying agreeable gray in my north facing family room and it’s not so agreeable-it looks lavender and nothing like yours as shown. Suggestions?
Beautiful home!!! Painting a small bathroom (no window) and while I always love color, leaning to a white shade for clean look. . Hallway leading into space is SW Agreeable Gray. Vanity is gray w marble gray/white top and flooring is beautiful farmhouse style darker wood style tiles. Question…will white make the room too cold and sterile appearing? Also concerned it will make trip work all blend in without any pop. Or should I lean to a warmer shade, say w tan tone? A million thanks in advance for your guidance!!
I love all white personally but agreeable gray is a great color too!
I’m your living room, the ceiling, trim, and batten are extra white. Is that the color of the walls as well? I’ve painted my living room theee times already and can’t see to get the white right. Did you do the walls as well as the ceiling in matte with the trim satin?
What is the name of the wallpaper in your laundry room? I’m thinking about putting it in my foyer.
It’s from Serena and Lily not sure on the name but you can find it on their site – thanks!
Hi- are your Exterrior paint colors listed somewhere?
It’s vinyl shake siding my Mastic the color is Natural Slate – thanks!
In you basement living room, can you tell me what rug that is?
What is your exterior color and roof color? I’ve been ruminating about making a choice and I love your home!
Hey Amanda our siding is vinyl shake by Mastic in the color Natural Slate our roof is Driftwood by CertainTeed I believe.
Hi Kelly, beautiful choices!
Did yours the extra white on your laundry room wall?
Yes I did!
Hi Kelly. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. You have gorgeous taste in everything you picked. I love how it all goes together☺
Thanks so much Donna!
I used Agreeable Gray and a step lighter than topsail. I love them except for one thing that I hope you have an answer for. If you get a mark on the wall, you cannot wash it off without it showing that you did that. It takes the mark but the paint spot stays a little darker. How do you clean a mark off the wall. I tried to just touch it up with paint and that shows too.
Hey Sheila, I haven’t had issues with that I typically use a magic eraser gently and that takes care of it. We used a matte sheen not sure if that makes a difference? Thanks!
Did you use the same sheen of extra white on your ceilings, walls and trim? I am just about to do extra white in the largest room in our house and I picked satin for everything.
Our ceilings are matte but the trim, cabinets, and board and batten are all satin – thanks!
I was so thankful for your paint color post. Your post was so helpful to me. My house flooded when Hurricane Harvey hit Houston. It was a very devastating time and I had so much to deal with!! I loved your paint color choices that I ended up using three paint colors you had posted (SW Extra White, SW Silver Strand, BM Neburyport). Thank you so much for your inspiration : )
I’m so sorry to hear that! How awful! I’m so glad you these colors worked out for you.
The interior of your home is gorgeous! I love all of those paint colors!
What is the type and name of your flooring.
I’m new to site.
They are Engineered Hardwood floors from Build Direct by Vanier the color is Robin. You can find them linked on my FAQ page – thanks!
Great color selection. I am finishing up a cottage loft and this color scheme will be most helpful.
Oh great I’m glad this was helpful thanks!
Such a beautiful and versatile color palette. It’s so lovely with your blues but would work well with virtually any accent color. p.s. I hope your girls weekend was wonderful!
Thanks, Dori, we did have a great weekend! It was nice to get away and have some girl time :)
I used your palette when we moved into our new home. It turned out beautiful. It made color decisions so easy and the whole house harmonizes. Thank you for saving me money and hours repainting because it wasn’t just right!
Oh yay I’m so happy to hear that!! Thanks for sharing!
Hi. Are you able to tell me the brand and color of the floor with the Silver Strand painted walls? Thanks in advance. Would love to use the whole theme in our bedroom.
I believe it’s Sherwin Williams? Thanks!
