I first saw Wind’s Breath in my friend’s bedroom and instantly fell in love with its warmth and softness. Paired with white trim, it’s the fresh modern version of a traditional beige. This will be a paint color that becomes very popular for 2023.

Classic Gray has also been gaining in popularity recently. I would consider this paint color to be the quintessential greige.

Balboa Mist is a light warm gray paint color, that just about falls into the greige category. In north facing rooms, or hiding in the shadows, it can look a bit grayer.
