We’ve used it in the #thetonkahouse, the #raspberryhillhouse, and #thetreehousereno, and we love how versatile it is!

We have to say that Swiss Coffee is the perfect choice for a neutral off-white color that works beautifully for interiors and exteriors alike. It tends to look slightly warm in tone, but never yellow! We used Swiss Coffee at #thelakeloft, and we love how inviting it makes our entryway feel.

It’s more of a mid to light neutral gray, and it’s one of Benjamin Moore’s best-selling neutral paint colors. If you’re looking for a gray paint color that adds some brightness but is still gray, then we recommend this paint color!
