Does Pale Oak go with Gray?

When choosing a gray paint color to pair with Pale Oak, be sure that it has warm undertones – more like a greige or grey-beige. Anything cool toned will clash.

What accent colors go with Pale Oak?

Pale Oak is generally neutral enough to work with many color schemes. It’s easiest to stick with colors either with warm undertones or that are muted with a lot of gray to them.

  • BM Healing Aloe

What wood tones go with Pale Oak?

When choosing wood tones for furniture or accessories to pair alongside Pale Oak, look for wood with similar undertones. Pale Oak is slightly yellow and definitely warm toned.

Do not pair it with an icy cool gray wood tone or anything too red. Instead, pick stains and finishes that are more beige or ever so slightly golden to flow with the color’s undertones.

What trim colors go with Pale Oak?

Pale Oak pairs well with a soft white paint color for trim. This will bring out the creaminess in the color without creating too much harsh contrast. I suggest Benjamin Moore White Dove!

If you prefer high-contrast and a pure white trim, I would suggest Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace.
