If you’re looking for a flexible and more modern gray that isn’t icy and cool, Benjamin Moore Fieldstone might just be “the one.”
This gray has an underlying whiff of green that makes it very updated and chic for 2024. We will see it in real homes, gather some coordinating color ideas, and of course compare it to dupes!
What Color is Benjamin Moore Fieldstone (1558)?
If most sage green colors are gray-greens, Benjamin Moore Fieldstone is a green-gray. It’s a gray that can look sage, but I wouldn’t say that it is fully a sage green. Maybe a sage gray?
Going into this post, I was expecting something along the lines of taupe from the swatch, but in real life that isn’t the vibe I got. (I’ll show you more in just one minute.)
LRV and RBG of Benjamin Moore Fieldstone
The LRV of Fieldstone is 42.73.
What does that mean?
The LRV of a color indicates on a scale of 0 – 100 how much light a color reflects (or doesn’t reflect). True black has an LRV of 0 and pure white has an LRV of 100.
In the paint world, we are working in a range of about 3 – 93 because no paint color is purely black or completely white.
At 43, Fieldstone absorbs a little bit more light than it reflects. It is just a tiny bit darker than most whole home neutrals, which tend to fall in the LRV range of 50 – 65. It is still very much a mid-toned color however, and not on the darker end.
Benjamin Moore does not provide technical values for their colors, but an approximate RGB for Fieldstone is Red 177, Green 177, Blue 166.
The hex value for Fieldstone is approximately #B1B1A6. (I like using Converting Colors to find these.)
What Are the Undertones of Fieldstone?
Fieldstone most often has subtle green undertones. It can range in appearance from a true gray to one with a slight olive tint, but most often it appears to have a whisper of sage.
Is Fieldstone Warm or Cool?
Deciding whether Fieldstone is warm or cool is unusually tricky, and ultimately up to you!
It is warmer than cool blue grays, but not nearly as warm as most greiges. I would probably classify this one as a neutral, since it would be easy to find similar colors that are both warmer and cooler.

Benjamin Moore Fieldstone in a Color Palette
Let’s take a look at some color palette inspiration for Fieldstone:
Coordinating Colors to Use with Fieldstone
Here are all of the colors that I chose to go with Fieldstone:
Fieldstone with Simply White
Starting with a coordinating white, here is Simply White with Fieldstone:
Ultimately I chose a creamy white because that’s more “in” at the moment, but I might otherwise lean towards the clean white of Chantilly Lace.
Fieldstone with Evergreen Fog
I think Fieldstone would look great with a more overtly sage color, so I chose Evergreen Fog:
Fieldstone with Hale Navy
I really wanted to get some contrast into this color scheme, so I brought in the neutral-est navy: Hale Navy!
I really think these two look great together, but it was a close race between Hale Navy and Benjamin Moore Soot.
Fieldstone with Natural Choice (Sherwin Williams)
When we hop over to exteriors you will see an example of these two together, and who doesn’t need solid neutral ideas?
Natural Choice is technically more like an off white, but since Fieldstone is slightly darker than most neutrals, why not go a little lighter?
Complementary Color for Fieldstone
The “official” complementary color for Fieldstone (the shade directly across the color wheel) would be a medium blue gray with a slight purple undertone. Benjamin Moore Wisteria is a pretty good color match:
Personally, I think that either Hale Navy or Soot also fit the bill but without looking purple. If you aren’t anti-purple, you might really like Sherwin Williams Perle Noir.
What Trim Colors Go With Benjamin Moore Fieldstone?
Before we get to white trim ideas, here is Fieldstone where trendsetter Meridith (@lexstyleanddesign) used it as her trim and door color:
The wall color here is Simply White. (Of course!)
White Paint that Goes with Fieldstone
Here are a few popular trim whites that pair well with Fieldstone:
Because this color is so neutral, I would just pick your favorite white. Why not?
We already talked about Chantilly Lace and Simply White, but here is more info on White Dove. The Swiss Coffee color shown above is the Benjamin Moore option, but there are several colors by that name.
Benjamin Moore Fieldstone for Your Home’s Interior
Fieldstone seems to be a popular color that nobody is really talking about. I was able to find several great real life examples, but it is far from trendy (which is typically quite a good thing!).
Benjamin Moore Fieldstone on Kitchen Cabinets
In this first kitchen, Jennifer (@northof60charm) used Fieldstone to spice up the stock white cabinets on her island:
This is definitely as silver/true gray as Fieldstone gets. More from Jennifer in just a minute!
This next kitchen shows a slightly greener undertone to Fieldstone:
Mary Ann of @classiccasualhome used Fieldstone for the kitchen island in this remodel project. I think that this photo is a pretty good idea of the “typical” look you might expect from Fieldstone.
On the lighter side, we have Fieldstone on both upper and lower cabinets in this design by Caraline Sierota Interiors:
About choosing this color, Caraline said: “We wanted something that felt light, pretty and feminine, but with a bit of contrast to the white brick tiles.”
This definitely fits the bill, but I do think it leans lighter in this photo than it normally would. There is a ton of light in this kitchen though! (If you like this look, you might prefer Behr White Metal.)
Finally in this kitchen by Susan Yeley Homes, we get one more glimpse of Fieldstone on cabinets:
I’m so sorry, I didn’t catch the island color in this kitchen, but it appears to be a charcoal stain:
Here is one more look:
To be honest, the color still looks a touch lighter than I expected here!
Benjamin Moore Fieldstone in a Living Room
Now let’s take a look at Fieldstone in a much more traditional feeling room:
Holly of @hcbinteriors, chose Fieldstone for the bookcases in her home library/living room.
I love these photos because you get to see all the different looks of Fieldstone in one room! In the first photo it looked very light, but in this next one it looks darker and much more green:
Back to light, but still more green:
Here is one more living room, in the home of Jill (@witherspingle):
Here Fieldstone looks like a nice mid-toned sage green.
Benjamin Moore Fieldstone in a Dining Room
Heading back over to Jennifer’s place, we can also peep Fieldstone in her dining room:
She made the bold choice to accent her dining room by painting the interior doors!
I happen to love this trend, because it is actually pretty low-committment if you think about it. (Not that doors are a breeze to paint.) If you like it too, you might like my post: 39 Spicy Black Interior Doors (How to DIY & Paint Colors to Use!)
Here is one more look:
Benjamin Moore Fieldstone on an Exterior
For today’s exterior example, I will have to show you something very close to Fieldstone. Luckily, Sherwin Williams Escape Gray was my choice for a dupe of Fieldstone, and I was able to find that color on both exterior brick and siding.
The team at CertaPro Charlotte Matthews repainted this gorgeous two storey in the Fieldstone lookalike. The creamy white accent color in the dormers is Sherwin Williams Natural Choice.
The main difference between Fieldstone and Escape Gray is that Escape Gray is just a tiny bit darker. On this overcast day, the color looks even a bit darker than it normally would, so bear that in mind.
I would expect Fieldstone to pull quite a strong green undertone outside in natural light. So definitely don’t pick this color hoping to get it’s truest gray face.
Fieldstone Compared to Similar Paint Colors
Normally I would have a decent list of often compared shades, but Fieldstone sort of flies under the radar. I do want to show it compared to the popular Benjamin Moore shade October Mist:
Benjamin Moore Fieldstone vs October Mist
Here you can see that October Mist is a bit more green than Fieldstone.
I would say that October Mist is a green paint color, where Fieldstone just has a green undertone.
