Contrasting Trim Ideas


If you’re looking to refresh a room (or your whole house!) then you’re going to want to see this list of the most popular greige paint colors by Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore.

Simply put, gray + beige = greige. If you love gray paint colors but find them tricky (those dark blue/purple/green undertones!) then greige is probably the perfect choice for you.

What is Greige?

Because greige paint colors are gray colors with a beige/brown undertone, they work well in both cool and warmly lit spaces. 

Where to Use Greige Paint

As more and more people shift away from the cool grays that were trendy a decade ago, greige has become the trend for today. 

Is Greige Just a Trend?

As I talk about these paint colors I will quickly touch on their LRV number. This number is on a scale of 0 – 100, with 0 being pure black and 100 being pure white. This will help give you an idea of how dark or bright a paint color is.

Light Reflectance Value (LRV)

Anew Gray is a subtly warm gray that looks its best in a room with south-facing or warm western afternoon light. In darker rooms or those with cooler light, it will lean much more into the gray.

Repose Gray is in fact much closer to gray and not technically a greige. But, it is a warm gray and a really beautiful one at that. Because it’s so popular, and works so well in any exposure, I decided to keep it in here.
