Agreeable Gray in Real-Life Homes

Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray has been a popular paint color for the last several years.  But will its popularity continue?  These SW Agreeable Gray reviews and video will help you decide on your perfect wall color for 2021 and several years to come!

Even when true grays began to trend more in the last few years with the popularity of industrial farmhouse decor, greiges like Agreeable Gray retained their popularity.

As the events of 2020 unraveled, homeowners began to spend more time indoors and embraced the warmth and comfort their homes had to offer so much so that “coziness” has made its mark on home decor.  Although true grays can make a room look bigger, the popularity of greiges soared again to better incorporate the warmth and comfort of home.

Now, more than ever, Agreeable Gray is the perfect neutral greige paint color because it offers the light and airy feel of the latest paint color trends but is also warm enough to elevate the comfort level of any room! 

Agreeable Gray Throughout Our House

This color is my “go-to” warm gray as it is in most of the rooms of my home. I have lived with Agreeable Gray on my walls for three years and love it as much as the day I first rolled it on! Agreeable Gray goes well with any furniture or fixtures making it a great color to help sell your home. Throughout this post, you’ll see Agreeable Gray in my own home and many other real-life homes.

Is Gray Paint Going Out of Style?

Greiges gained a lot of popularity as farmhouse decor (Thank you Joanna!) came on the scene several years ago. They were a rustic, carefree, imperfection-embracing break from the yellow-toned beiges that accompanied more traditional home decor.

Greiges were a safe alternative to true grays because they had one foot in the warmer undertones of familiar beiges while having the other foot in the trendy cool-toned grays coming on the scene.

Warm grays waned in popularity slightly as more people favored cool grays throughout homes. But when the events of 2020 transpired, we embraced comfort to the point we even made it a priority within our home decor.

Although grays can make a room look bigger, they can also make a space feel cold, impersonal, and well…uninviting. As “coziness” became a hallmark of home decor, wall colors began to warm up slightly, trading the staunch, lifeless grays for something a little warmer.

Is Agreeable Gray Still Popular?

As I mention in the video, “coziness” has become a priority in home decor, steely grays have given way to softer greiges again. But this time, lighter greiges that are almost white have become the trend as opposed to deeper, muddier tones.

A new trend for 2021 is warm whites but the problem with whites is they can quickly wash out an entire room. You need some depth of color to give your decor dimension and contrast. And those beautiful white-walled rooms you see on Instagram? In most cases, they are light greiges behind a stark filter that retains contrast.

Agreeable Gray has seen a long duration of popularity that lessoned some as cool grays became popular. But now that light greiges are on trend again for 2021, Agreeable Gray is seeing a rise in popularity like never before. Not only does AG embrace neutral warmth that is so versatile with any decor and style, but it is on the lighter side greiges that is now so popular.

What is the Perfect Greige Paint Color?

Somehow Agreeable Gray works with almost any other color scheme which is probably why its an all-time best-seller for Sherwin Williams.

Not only is Agreeable Gray Sherwin Williams’ most popular gray color but it is also the perfect greige. It carefully balances gray and beige into a soft warm beige that is extremely versatile.

Warm colors are red, orange, and yellow while cool colors are blue, green, and magenta.  Even the most subtle cool or warm undertones can affect the feel of a room.  For example, a cooler (grayer) greige color can make a room look more spacious and airy.  But colors that are too cool can make a room feel sparse and impersonal.  Warm colors like beiges with yellow undertones can make a room feel warmer and cozier.  However, a room with too much yellow can look dated and stuffy.  Natural light is usually a tad blue and most artificial lights are yellower.

The Agreeable Gray color palette coordinates naturally with either cool or warm tones of any home décor including furniture, flooring, wall art, hardware, and window treatments. I’ve seen it time and time again as most of the rooms in my own home are painted in this color.

Painting a room is the most budget-friendly way to update a room without having to buy new furnishings and decor.

But why is AG so versatile as the perfect light neutral that works well with almost any color palette?

Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray Undertones

To understand the amazing-ness that is Agreeable Gray we have to better understand its LRV or Light Reflective Value.

LRV (Light Reflective Value) is a measurement for how much light will reflect on the painted surface.  In other words, it shows how light or dark a color is.  LVR will help you easily compare the depth of different shades to one another.  When you are starring at 12 greige paint swatches that are all starting to look the same, knowing their LVR number can be a big help to know how light and dark they truly are!

The range for LRV is 0 to 100 where  0 is black reflecting the least amount of light and 100 is true white reflecting the most light.  (That’s why darker color cars are warmer in summer than lighter cars – unless you are in here in Texas where they are ALL just crazy hot. )

As mentioned in the video, agreeable gray has an LRV of 60 which is just above the midpoint meaning it is on the lighter, more-reflective side of the spectrum.  A higher LVR adds life to any room giving it that sought-after “light and airy” feel.  However, your LVR shouldn’t be so high that your paint color meshes together with your trim.  That’s when your walls look washed out and they don’t give your room enough contrast.

How paint responds to light is its most distinctive asset BUT it can add layers of complexity when picking a paint color.  Fortunately, you now know what to look for when picking the perfect colors!

LRV is one consideration but shades also have different undertones.  All grays have blue, purple, or green undertones.  That means under the perfect conditions (or not-so-perfect conditions) these colors can show through. 

HOWEVER, because the intensity of the undertones of Agreeable Gray are so perfectly balanced, you seldomly see these colors come through.  That’s why it is such a versatile paint shade that coordinates well with so many other colors.

What to Know About Agreeable Gray’s Undertones

If you push Agreeable Gray to the limits say with a very cool light bulb it can pull some purple undertones. The only time I have seen this in the last few years in my own Agreeable Gray rooms was when I put in a lightbulb that was 6000K, which was way too blue. The whole room looked like a changing room with bright fluorescent lighting so I’m not surprised the paint color pulled some atypical undertones.

Some say that Agreeable Gray hash some green undertones. I’m almost hesitate to even include that because I don’t want you to think it’s a sage-y greige because it’s not. BUT I do love the way it coordinates with houseplants in my home! I’ve lived with this color for several years and absolutely love. No paint color is perfect …but this one is about as close as they come!

How Light Affects Agreeable Gray Paint

To better understand how light reacts with AG, it’s a good idea to know how directional changes can make paint colors warmer or cooler.

  • North-Facing Rooms – Northern light is not as bright and brings out cooler tones within a color, so if you paint Agreeable Gray on a wall facing the north, light from those windows will make your walls appear cooler and will therefore showcase AG’s grayer side. To counteract this effect, you can hang a mirror to help bounce the light around the room and balance it.
  • South-Facing Rooms – Southern light is bright and warm from dawn to dusk. This will bring out the warmer tones of AG making it slightly beige, showing off its warmth.
  • East-Facing and West-Facing Rooms – When decorating a room facing either direction, consider the time of the day the room will be used the most. Light in west-facing spaces is cooler in the morning and brighter (warmer) in the afternoon. The opposite is true for east-facing rooms where you will want to embrace the cooler evening light for a calming effect.

How Light Bulbs Affect Agreeable Gray Paint Color

Did you know that lightbulbs can drastically affect the color of your paint? When buying lightbulbs, white cool bulbs can give off a bluer tint where incandescent bulbs give off yellow light. For the best representation of your wall color, try a neutral white bulb that represents daylight. I’ve used these low-cost LED bulbs in my Agreeable Gray living room for over a year now and they bring out they make my walls and home decor look amazing: LED Daylight Bulbs

Does The Wall Color Agreeable Gray Help a Home Sell Better?

Because Agreeable gray is so balanced as a neutral, it is a great color to use if you are planning to repaint before putting your house on the market in the next 2-4 years!  (See DIY Projects with the Highest ROI when selling your home HERE.) Revere Pewter used to be the most people color to sell a home but now homeowners are favoring Agreeable Gray because lighter colors are more popular.

The Posterboard Trick For Picking The Right Paint Color

It’s a great idea to get samples of your paint color, whether that’s an actual sample-sized container of paint or the Samplize stick-on squares (click here for prices). But oftentimes, I see homeowners paint the sample directly on their old color.

As I explain in the video, doing this makes it really difficult to see a true comparison of what the new samples would look like. That’s because the old paint is influencing the look of your new paint sample on the wall.

Click here for Peel & Stick Samples

For example, if you put an Agreeable Grey paint sample on the wall of a room that is already a yellow-y beige, then Agreeable Gray is going to look very gray because the yellow undertones will trick your eye into thinking AG is cooler than it really is. I’ve seen the same with light and dark colors.

To fix this problem, put your sample on a white piece of poster board. Then, your brain is comparing the paint on your sample to pure white and it isn’t easily swayed by the color already on the wall. The white border around the sample acts as a boundary for your eye to better anchor itself back to pure white.

You can also use a project board (like for science fair projects) to bend around a corner and then stick the paint sample over it. This allows you to see and compare how the sample looks in your house from two different light sources at once!

You can use command strips to adhere your piece of poster board to the wall. When you are down to two or three samples, attach the poster board pieces (with samples attached) to your walls. Then, live with them a couple of days to see how they are affected by the lighting throughout the day.

Real-Life Rooms with Agreeable Gray

My living room, kitchen, breakfast area, entry, and dining room are all painted in Agreeable Gray. I absolutely love this color and how versatile it is.

Agreeable Gray Kitchens

Agreeable Gray is a great option for kitchens because it is light and bright without being cold. Also, it’s not so bright that white cabinets just blend in with the walls.

Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray with Board and Batten

Agreeable Gray is a great color with board and batten because it is still dark enough to contrast with the white but light enough to look light and airy. This entryway belongs to my in-laws. My mother-in-law Kathy Peters was the person who first got me interested in home decor. She’s very gifted with design…and I’m not just saying that to get extra points. Also, my brother-in-law Paul Cooper added the board and batten.

Carmen with Living Letter home took advantage of Agreeable Gray’s soft beige undertones in her nursery above. This is a great nursery color because it coordinates so well with baby blue or pastel pink but will also work with future color palettes.

Agreeable Gray works well for giving outdated brick a new look. It helps this home have a clean new palette without the stark contrast of white that’s hard to keep clean.


Agreeable Gray not only looks great on cabinets and walls but it also looks amazing on furniture. You can see the console table below and this bathroom cabinet gives you an idea of how it would look on a hutch or secretary desk.

Comparisons With Similar Wall Colors

Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray vs. Accessible Beige

Accessible beige is agreeable grays warmer counterpart.  They have almost the exact same depth of color but accessible beige is warmer and Agreeable leans more into gray with its cooler undertones. 

The LVR of Accessible Beige is 58, slightly darker than Agreeable Gray’s LVR of 60.  Accessible Beige is more warm-toned than Agreeable Gray.  Where Agreeable Gray has some green undertones, Accessible Gray has yellow undertones as with most beiges.

If you aren’t sold on the grayer tones in Agreeable Gray, accessible beige is a safe bet as it’s just a versatile as its grayer cousin.

agreeable gray vs accessible beige

Agreeable Gray vs. Revere Pewter

Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter has had huge popularity in the last five years but it is wavering in popularity because lighter beiges are now trending. Revere Pewter is more of a muddy gray.

Agreeable Gray and Revere Pewter both have green undertones. We have Revere Pewter in our guest room and it seems to pull more of the green undertones than Agreeable Gray.

Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter is slightly darker than Agreeable Gray as it has an LRV of 55. If you are looking for an earthier gray, Revere Pewter is your best bet while Agreeable Gray is a more light and airy greige.

agreeable gray vs revere pewter

Agreeable Gray vs. Repose Gray

What is the difference between Repose Gray and Agreeable Gray? If Accessible Beige is Agreeable Gray’s beiger cousin, Repose Gray is a grayer counterpart of Agreeable Gray. Repose Gray is the same depth (LV=60) as Agreeable Gray and like Revere Pewter has green undertones. Agreeable Gray has green undertones as well but they can be more obvious in certain lighting situations with Repose Gray.

Repose Gray also has blue undertones as a true gray and Agreeable Gray is a balanced neutral as a true greige. Many have called Repose Gray the perfect gray paint color and I’d argue that Agreeable Gray is the perfect light greige.

agreeable gray vs repose gray

Agreeable Gray vs. Edgecomb Gray

When comparing Benjamin Moore’s Edgecomb Gray to Agreeable Gray, they are very similar! We have Edgecomb Gray in my daughter’s room and it is slightly lighter with an LVR of 63.88. I’m a big fan of Edgecomb Gray as a light beige (why do I feel like I’m cheating on AG by saying that?!?). It’s a lighter version of Agreeable Greige and is great for a northern exposure where you don’t have to worry about it being too washed out.

Agreeable Gray vs. Worldly Gray

Sherwin Williams Worldy Gray is a little darker (LRV=58) than Agreeable Gray and it is more showy with its green undertones. Worldy Gray is a good option is you are concerned about Agreeable Gray looking too washed out in a southern exposure.

agreeable gray vs worldly gray

Anew Gray vs. Agreeable Gray

Anew Gray is one shade darker on the paint sample than Agreeable Gray. It is slightly darker than Worldly Gray because it has an LVR of 47. Although it’s one shade away from Agreeable Gray, Anew Gray is not a good coordinating color with AG because it’s still a little too close in intensity.

anew gray vs agreeable gray

Agreeable Gray vs. Swiss Coffee

Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee is beautiful warm white but be careful about putting it on walls with western or eastern exposures because it may pull yellow. It is also very light which can leave a room looking washed out. In a room with lots of sunlight, Agreeable Gray looks a lot like Swiss Coffee. The LVR of Swiss Coffee is 83 making it much lighter than Agreeable Gray and it has fewer gray undertones.

Whites with Agreeable Gray

You have lots of great trim options with Agreeable Gray as it is really versatile with a number of whites. If you want to paint your trim with a creamier white, I’d go for Alabaster. It’s the trim color you can see in the images of my living room and dining room and not as harsh as other whites.

Agreeable Gray and Extra White are a great combination if you want a brighter, truer white for your trim.

The board and batten is painted in Sherwin Williams Extra White and the walls are painted with Agreeable Gray. See more images of this gorgeous dining room with board and batten on Instagram at @designwithdink

However, if you want a white that is only slightly cool, I like Pure White more because it is more subdued and not as stark as Extra White.

Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray Coordinating Colors

What colors look good with Agreeable Gray? Agreeable Gray’s versatility doesn’t only extend to a room’s fixtures and decor but it plays nicely with several other neutral paint colors.

  • Mega Greige – Mega Greige is another great Sherwin-williams gray with warm tones that is two shades darker on the Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray swatch. It is a great darker greige if you are looking to do an accent wall or adjacent room in the same color family. Anew Gray is between Agreeable Gray and Mega Greige on the Agreeable Gray color strip. However, it’s smart to avoid colors next to each other on the color swatch because they are often too similar in depth. You want the contrasting color you choose to look deliberate.
  • Sea Salt – If you are looking for a sage green with lots of neutral undertones, Sea Salt is your color! It is absolutely beautiful as it’s a sage green that goes beautifully with farmhouse and coastal decor. It’s bright enough to look intentionally green but definitely a muted neutral that is versatile.
  • Benjamin Moore Hale Navy – My favorite navy is Hale Navy. It has lots of gray undertones making it almost a neutral in and of itself. It goes beautifully with Agreeable Gray as an accent color or as a furniture color. You can read all about why Hale Navy is my go-to navy here: Benjamin Moore Hale Navy Review
  • Oyster Bay – This a darker version of Seal Salt if you are looking for a greige with obvious green undertones that is dark enough to coordinate with Agreeable Gray.
  • Steamed Milk – I already mentioned that Alabaster is a good creamy white as a trim color. But if you’re looking for a true cream for furniture or an accent wall, Steamed Milk coordinates well with SW Agreeable Gray
  • Dovetail – This is another darker greige that leans harder into gray than Mega Gray. Agreeable Gray and Dovetail look gorgeous together in any room.

RENOVATE YOUR FAITH: How God Really Sees You

When I started this journey of blogging, I had every intention of being a faith blog with an occasional DIY or home decor post to keep things interesting.⁣⁣⁣

However, I realized that what energized me the most and what made my heart the happiest was the DIY posts. With these projects, I could be creative, work with my hands and help people by finding a better way to improve some aspect of their home.⁣⁣⁣
But I felt some guilt about this…⁣⁣⁣

Part of me felt like a sell-out for no longer doing posts with ONLY devotional content.⁣⁣⁣
Then something interesting happened.⁣⁣⁣
I start getting emails saying “I found your post about refinishing my side tables and came away with encouragement in my faith.” Or the email I got just a few minutes ago, “I was reading about tips to sell my home and the part at the end about God’s plans brought tears to my eyes.”⁣⁣⁣
God loves it when we use the very gifts and talents He gave us. He has given them to us for a reason and He delights in watching us enjoy them.⁣ Like a daddy watching his daughter play softball, He watches you intently saying “Atta girl (your name here)!⁣⁣⁣
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.” Colossians 3:23⁣⁣⁣

    A friend was repainting her interior and chose Agreeable Gray. We ended up going with Revere Pewter with White Dove as our trim. We both love our choices.

    You recently did an article on LED grow lights. We have about 5 sets of those in our basement which all turn on/off with 1 remote. The lights are cheap, super easy to install and add a warm glow to our built-ins and room.

    I never realized that we could put live plants underneath the LED lights. How awesome. For homes with these colors and built-ins, I highly recommend those LED lights as a finishing touch. You will be amazed what they do to a room.

  2. I chose Accessible Beige for my hearth/kitchen area and since then I’ve used it in several more rooms in the house…it really does the trick no matter where I put it…open airy rooms with lots of light and small closed in bathrooms. I also agree with the white poster board method…worked for me too!

  3. Hello Faith,

    This has been the most helpful blog about Agreeable gray and other matching colors. Especially because my living room and dining room have similar colors so I can see the result more clearly. My wainscotting is Cloud White by BM so I will definitely use Pure White by SW to get a better contrast and less yellow undertones. Most of my furniture is white, I have painted an old buffet Hale Navy by BM and the back of my bookcases are painted Hale Navy as well. My curtains are navy, gray and white. This will be the perfect color for my home as I am oriented North.

    I also have to refresh my kitchen cabinets. Would you recommend another white since Pure White will be on all my wainscotting and trims ? The part of my kitchen with the cabinets does not receive a lot of light as I do not have any window there. I have subway tiles on my backsplash with gray strout and the counter is a black-charcoal.

    Thank you!


  4. Hello Karin,
    The information you shared is so useful and on point. I recently painted the interior of ny home with Agreeable gray and accented the TV wall with In the Navy. It turned out so beautiful. However, I have to change the art as they were framed with dark brown wood. Also I think I’ll have to change the deep red/burgundy drapes in the formal living and dining area. I love those custom drapes but it just doesn’t look the way I envisioned. Can you suggest colors for window treatments that work well with Agreeable Gray?
