At 65, Gray Owl is undoubtedly a lighter color and will reflect decent light in your room. LRV isn’t an exact art, but I’d say Gray Owl is a little lighter than Stonington Gray.
Classic Gray is a lighter shade than Balboa Mist and Gray Owl. The LRV is 74. Compared to owl gray, classic gray is a much warmer shade which also tends to be a light brown shade.

Stone gray. Stonington Gray (BM HC170) is a beautiful medium gray with cool blue undertones. It will remain completely gray in most rooms unless accompanied by lots of cool white light (north-facing) where it can appear a little blue.
Unlike your brown tree, it can look even bluer. Metameric Shift and LRV (Light Reflectance Value) - means that a color changes in one light or appears in another color in the other light.
Many warm colors of gray and gray capture a subtle undertone of taupe / purple / green (SW Pleasant Gray / Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter / Sherwin Williams Colonnade Gray).
Colors that go with gray
In this case, many fear that BM Simply White is too yellow. Even though it is warmer than other white wines, I would never call it yellow. There is actually a lot of gray and green in there. It goes very well with warm grays and light gray colors.
Best ceiling colors and colors
Gray Owl is a light gray color with super subtle shades in blue and green. The gray owl may look good on the outside of a house, but if it gets a lot of natural light (south or west) it can look much less. It works best in a home with a north facing location.
GOOD QUESTION! I’ve seen Stonington work with soft warm whites like Simply White and Cloud White, but you can also go more neutral / whiter, in line with BM Oxford White or BM Super White.
For reference, most white paints have an LRV of 8095. Balboa Mist is therefore light gray.

The gray screen is really gray … and it’s often the hue people find in grayscale. It has blue undertones, so it’s a cool gray. This is the MOST POPULAR shade of the entire Sherwin Williams collection.

Gray is the new warm color. The new should have an essential, modern and decisive color, but timeless and classic. It is the perfect chameleon as it fits into any room, mood and environment.
