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 or warmer beiges 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 greiges waned in popularity slightly as more people favored cool grays throughout homes. But since then, we embraced comfort to the point we even made it a priority within our home decor. Now neutral gray paint colors are more popular than ever.

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. RELATED: 23 Tips to Decorate Your Living Room On A Budget

Is Agreeable Gray Still Popular in 2024?

As I mention in the video, “coziness” has become a priority in home decor, and 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 2024 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 2024, 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 of greiges that are now so popular.

What is the Perfect Greige Paint Color?

Somehow Agreeable Gray works with almost any other color scheme which is probably why it’s an all-time best color 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 on the color wheel. 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

This color is known for playing nicely with different colors! 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 Reflectance 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. LRV will help you easily compare the depth of different shades to one another. When you are staring at 12 greige paint swatches that are all starting to look the same, knowing their LRV number can be a big help to know how light and dark they truly are!
The Higher the LRV the lighter the color and the lower the LRV the darker the color.

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. )

The LRV of Agreeable Gray

As mentioned in the video, the LRV of Agreeable Gray is 60 which is just above the midpoint meaning it is on the lighter, more-reflective side of the spectrum

A higher LRV adds life to any room giving it that sought-after “light and airy” feel. 

However, your Light Reflectance Value shouldn’t be so high that your paint color meshes together with your trim. 

That’s when your walls look washed out in a room with plenty of natural light and they don’t give your room enough contrast. Always choose a slightly darker color in a room with bright light and the inverse is true as well as dark rooms can handle lighter colors.

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 has some green undertones. I’m almost hesitant 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 it. 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 in real homes.

  • 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

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 whereas 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.)

Benjamin Moore’s Revere Pewter used to be the most popular color to sell a home but now homeowners are favoring Agreeable Gray because lighter colors provide a fresher look.

So many of my DIY projects remind me of God’s capacity to transform our brokenness and renew our hearts.  If you are a work-in-progress, just like I am, check out the Renovate Your Faith Devotional at the bottom of each DIY and home décor post.   Click here to get a weekly reminder of new posts by adding your email address.

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.

pin on how not to select paint colors
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 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 for a couple of days to see how they are affected by the lighting throughout the day.

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.

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.

Comparisons With Similar Wall Colors

Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray vs. Accessible Beige

Accessible Beige, Sherwin Williams’ warmer counterpart to Agreeable Gray, is a bit cooler. In addition to being a big cooler, Agreeable Gray is a little lighter. The LRV of Accessible Beige is 58, slightly darker than Agreeable Gray’s LRV of 60. 

Not only is Accessible Beige more warm-toned than Agreeable Gray, but Agreeable Gray also has slight green undertones. Accessible Beige paint is a more typical warm beige that has yellow undertones.

If you aren’t sold on the grayer tones in Agreeable Gray, Accessible Beige is a safe bet as it’s just as versatile as its grayer cousin but has enough warmth.

agreeable gray vs accessible beige
Agreeable Gray Sherwin Williams VS Accessible Gray Sherwin Williams

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 home office space. BM Revere Pewter 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 choice 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 more beige cousin, Repose Gray is a grayer counterpart of Agreeable Gray. Repose Gray is a light french gray with the same depth (LRV=60) as Agreeable Gray.

Like Revere Pewter, it has green undertones. Agreeable Gray has green undertones as well but they can be more obvious in certain lighting situations with Repose Gray.

Sherwin Williams Repose Gray also has blue undertones as a true gray and Agreeable Gray is a balanced neutral as a true greige. When comparing Repose Gray vs Agreeable Gray, Repose Gray is often called the perfect gray paint color and I’d argue that Agreeable Gray is the perfect light greige.

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 LRV 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 edgecomb gray

Agreeable Gray vs. Worldly Gray

Sherwin Williams Worldly Gray is a little darker (LRV=58) than Agreeable Gray and it is showier with its green undertones. Worldy Gray is a good option if 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 LRV 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 a very light color which can leave a room looking washed out.

In a room with lots of sunlight, Agreeable Gray looks a lot like Swiss Coffee. The LRV 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 Agreeable Gray 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 SW 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.
  • Dorian Gray – If you want a darker version of Agreeable gray that leans more towards gray than beige, Dorian Gray is a great option as it has an LRV of 39. It is a few steps darker than Sherwin Williams Mindful Gray
  • 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 and it works great as an Agreeable Gray coordinating blue. 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.

For more Sherwin Wiliams Agreeable Gray coordinating colors, be sure to compare paint swatches or stick paint samples.

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 homes.⁣⁣⁣
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⁣⁣⁣

    Thnakyou for the blog its really Great and I enjoyed the stuff,aslo I really like your interior design.

      1. Brenda Smith says:

        Hi Karen, we really appreciate this post on AG! Hoping to get your thoughts on using AG both on the walls AND on mudroom/kitchen cabinets!? Do you think that would be too much AG?

        Thank you,

        1. Hey Brenda, I love your idea of using AG on your cabinets. I think I would do white on my walls in the kitchen and mudroom and AG on the cabinets. That contrast will break up the space a little bit and look very fresh and crisp. Let me know if you have any other questions Brenda!

  2. Hi there! I just found this, and it’s super helpful! I’ve been looking at AG to paint my house, but the problem is all of the trim, blinds, doors, etc in my house are Almond color. Would that clash? I was wondering if I’d need to go for accessible beige? Every picture I see with agreeable gray has white with it. Thanks for your help!

    1. Hey Alyson, I think that you are on the right track with going with Accessible Beige. It is really just Agreeable Greige’s slightly beiger sister so I think you will be happy with it! Let me know if I can answer any other questions!

  3. Hi! What color do you recommend for board and batten to match agreeable grey in a nursery? Thanks for your post!

  5. I would like to paint my whole house Sherwin Williams Agreeable Grey. I have dark to medium (I call short shag) multi-brown carpet, and wondering if it would go with it, it matches my tile that has some gray tones in it. But I’m worried about the carpet. I have been told it goes but I’m not sure. Thank you for your help.

    1. Hey Linda, I think Agreeable Gray would look great with a multi-brown carpet! I would have no hesitations. Hope this helps!

    I read your blog. Having very use full information help me a lot. I will read more articles on your blog.

    Coming across your blog today, made me out loud giggle. An absolute repeat of me 5 years ago when we built our house. For years, I have used the posterboard trick to decide on paint colors. I went back and forth between Agreeable Gray, Repose, and Worldly. It was a tough choice, but Agreeable won out. I love it!! Pure White for my both doors and trim, and flat Extra White for our ceilings. The entire house is Agreeable but with different accents in different rooms. I paired it with shades of deep eggplant purples to lavendar in the family room, kitchen, living rooms, and bathrooms. Bedrooms have deep turquoise (almost spruce) to soft aquas. I love the contrast that Agreeable provides with the deep colors. My floors are Lowe’s Ultra LVP in Woodford Oak. My cupboards are maple with a charcoal stain. It has been a fun morning spending it with you. Thanks!

    1. Sharon! That’s too funny. So glad to hear someone else uses the “Posterboard Trick.” Agreeable Gray is one of few things in life that will never let you down. Thank you for your sweet comment, insights and for giving me a good laugh!

  8. Renee Griffith says:

    Thank you for your blog, I just stumbled upon it. I have most of my house painted in agreeable grey. I was wondering that picture that is the dining room do you know where I could find that rug by chance and also what is that exact color of curtains ? There are so many colors of blue but I like that one !! I am going to use this in my kitchen actually !
    Love it !

    1. Hey Renee, Thank you so much for your kind words. I got the curtains at Target and they are called Farrah and last I checked they still have them. Also, I got the rug on Amazon and it’s called: Luxe Weavers Distressed Cream 6×9 Area Rug, Modern, Stain Resistant Carpet, Indoor Oriental Rug

    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?

    1. Hey Lavern, I’m seeing more and more white drapes in magazines but I think any neutral (beige) would go with Agreeable Gray. Hope this helps. Thank you! Karin

  10. 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!


  11. Thanks a lot very inspiring and informative.

  12. 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!

  13. Last year we finished our basement. Choosing a color is sooooo hard.

    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.
