CIL Designer Grey Is The Perfect Master Bedroom Paint Color #CILPaints

Designer Grey is the perfect grey paint. I used it to paint my master bedroom with CIL DUO and now I want to do a few more rooms. It's a warm grey with no undertones.

I am so excited to share the beginning of my master bedroom makeover with these before and after photos. It’s not complete, but I have picked out the master bedroom paint color and I love it.

From the moment I saw our master bedroom in the home tour while we were shopping for houses, I knew what I would do with it: neutral padded headboard, white linens and duvet cover, mirrored nightstands and the perfect shade of grey. So far I have 2/5 crossed off my list, I found a great deal on a duvet and duvet cover and painted the walls with CIL DUO in Designer Grey.

I wanted a neutral grey that wasn’t cool or warm. I didn’t want a grey that turned blue or green, which isn’t the easier shade to find. I walked out of the Home Depot with a handful of paint swatches and started to decide the moment I walked into the natural light.

At the time of deciding, I didn’t have possession of my house yet. I wasn’t able to take a sample or even hold the swatch up in the light that my future master bedroom received, so I took a gamble and went with my instincts told me. Designer Grey made the cut.

I was choosing between Touch of Grey and Designer Grey. I opted for Designer Grey for the master bedroom paint color but since I loved Touch of Grey, I grabbed a can of that too for the bathroom. Unforeseen circumstances have come up with the bathroom and I have yet to paint it, but I will share my master bathroom reveal as soon as I can.

Designer Grey is the perfect master bedroom paint. I wanted a warm grey but not too warm. There are not undertones, it’s not muddy, it’s just perfect. If I could use one word to describe Designer Grey in my master bedroom it would be tranquil, which is what a master bedroom should be. Since I have painted this room, I have slept like a baby. Have a mentioned that I love this paint color yet?

CIL Duo

CIL Duo is a paint and primer in one, and that means less painting and less money spent. Instead of a coat of primer (plus the additional expense) and two coats of paint, using the CIL Duo line cuts out the primer stage. I was grateful for that as I knew I had a lot of renovations ahead of me and the less I had to work, the better.

I am absolutely in love with this paint choice, my husband and I both are. Seeing it in person is unreal, it looks like a totally different room. The power of paint is amazing.


Now that the manual labour is done, I have to decorate it. The plan is a padded headboard in a beige color, a few throw pillows and coverlet, mirror nightstands, drapes (which are on order) and a few decorative pieces for the walls and dressers.

  1. That is a beautiful color choice. I bet it looks great in the master bedroom.

  2. Wow, it is absolutely gorgeous. I painted my bedroom a soothing gray color when I redesigned the master a few years back, and I’ve never regretted it. It makes for a calm and peaceful oasis after a stressful day. Thanks for sharing at the Show & Tell Link party

  3. Gray is such a nice neutral color and blends so harmoniously with any decor. I like the warmth of beige, but the coolness of gray would be okay too. I’m wondering if this brands offers low voc and low odor paint. Your room is looking great so far.

  4. What a brilliant color choice for your master BR. I am absolutely in love with it. I love that CIL DUO cuts the primer part. That saves you tons of time! Smart mama!

  5. I like the light shade of grey that you have chosen here. I am a fan of paints the cut out the primer part too. This looks great! I can’t wait to see all the final touches that you do to make the room look cozy too.

  6. I have a slightly darker shade of grey in my living room, and I love it! We are thinking of using a shade like designer grey in our bedroom, too! CIL makes some great shades of paint, and grey is a great choice that you can design around in so many different ways!

  7. I love the new colour! It is amazing how a room can be changed by adding some paint. Looks like a great master bedroom

  8. That is a beautiful colour!! Cool and relaxing!! Picking a grey colour can be very difficult! I choose on that I fell in love with at the store, only to bring it home and find it had a pink tinge! 🙁

  9. The before and after is really dramatic – while I liked the first colour the final colour is really beautiful and looks so crisp with the white baseboards.
