Nate Berkus gives me his "go-to" gray

Dior Gray
Benjamin Moore 2133-40
 
I have to give it to the folks at Nate Berkus Associates; they are super helpful. And fast. 
Last week when I asked about Nate's top gray paint color, I got this speedy reply...
 
"Benjamin Moore's Dior Gray"
 
I also dug up this little video by chance. I had no idea that it even existed.
When the design bloggers attended a taping of Nate's show a while back, I asked him about his favorite gray paint colors.
 
Here is his response.... 



The light grays that he mentions:
Benjamin Moore's Moon Shadow (#1516)
 Benjamin Moore's Silver Lake (#1598)
 
It was so fun to see that again.
 
(But too bad that my question was edited out.
You'd love my southern drawl, y'all.)

How fun! And I married my husband, in part, due to his southern accent :)

Gurl, I love a Southern accent! You could tell me to go to hell and I'd say "Thank you!".

First, I love a southern accent (and would be happy to hear yours). Second, I am so happy you posted Nate's choices. Third, your bergere is gorgeous!

I saw the show taped live and loved it.

I loved the "BM cliffside grey" he used on Katie Lee Joel's (on not Joel andymore) guest room and used it myself.

Use your drawl with pride honey. Never underestimate the power of a Southern woman's charm. ;)

I REALLY wish there could be a "favorite or 'best of' gray colors" post using colors from places all of us regular people use, like Lowes and Home Depot. Lol
As much as I love Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams, Farrow & Ball, etc etc...I just can't afford those.

I'm surprised NB didn't endorse Valspar.
