Stained Glass is really a dark teal color, but it has been muted by gray undertones. While teal can be really overwhelming to imagine on the walls, the muddiness of Stained Glass makes it really cozy and comfortable, especially in a light and bright space.

Gentleman’s Gray by Benjamin Moore (2062-20)

Gentleman's Gray by Benjamin Moore

Gentleman’s gray is really an odd name for this color because it’s not nearly as gray as it is a deep teal. However, the gentleman’s bit is right on key – this would be gorgeous in a study, library, or man cave paired with masculine accessories.
