Agreeable Gray Paint Color Review (Plus The Best Coordinating Colors!)

Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray

Agreeable Gray paint color, by Sherwin Williams, is one of the most popular shades on the market today. It is a versatile shade that goes in any style of home.

Agreeable Gray is the perfect go to color for painting a living room, dining room, or hallway, but it can really be used anywhere in the house. 

What Color is Agreeable Gray?

Agreeable Gray Paint Color

Agreeable Gray is the ultimate greige color, which means it is a mix of gray and beige. With a lot of gray in it and just a touch of beige, Agreeable Gray is perfect in rooms that have gray or brown undertones. 

Because it is a warm color, Agreeable Gray serves as a great backdrop for other warm shades.

Agreeable Gray has an LRV (Light Reflectance Value) of 60, meaning it reflects a fair amount of light.

Agreeable Gray Undertones

Agreeable Gray doesn’t have strong undertones, but does have a hint of green mixed in with its beige and gray tones.

Because Agreeable Gray is a greige, it goes with almost anything. It can pair with wood or white trim, goes well with all warm colors, and serves as a neutral backdrop for furnishings and accessories.

This color reminds me of an art gallery wall. It is soothing and does not make much of a statement on its own, leaving the furniture and accessories to really stand out.  

As with all colors, the lighting in your home will make a difference in how Agreeable Gray looks. For example, in a room with lots of white light, Agreeable Gray may look more gray. However, in a room with more yellow toned lights, Agreeable Gray will take on more of a beige look.

The pictures below illustrate this.

Is Agreeable Gray Popular?

Sherwin Williams has a list of their most popular colors on their website, and the first color listed is Agreeable Gray. Agreeable Gray has been chosen by homeowners and designers as the go-to color for years.

In fact, it is so versatile and popular that many realtors recommend it as the best color to paint your walls if you are selling your homes.

This is because it goes with anything. Agreeable Gray is light, doesn’t have strong undertones, and plays well with any style or color that you put with it.

Agreeable Gray Compared

It can be difficult to choose the best greige color for your home. Let’s explore some of the most popular greige colors on the market and compare them to Agreeable Gray.

Agreeable Gray vs Repose Gray

Repose Gray is a very popular Sherwin Williams color. It is a greige that leans more towards gray than beige.

Both Agreeable Gray and Repose Gray are gorgeous choices for your walls. While they each have gray and beige undertones, Agreeable Gray tends to do a slightly better job at going with everything.

With an LRV of 58, Repose Gray is not much darker than Agreeable Gray, but will look more like a true gray on the walls than Agreeable Gray will.

Agreeable Gray vs Revere Pewter

While Agreeable Gray is the most popular Sherwin Williams color, Revere Pewter may be the most popular Benjamin Moore color. Both are included on almost all lists of the most popular gray paint choices (even though they are greiges).

Agreeable Gray and Revere Pewter are similar shades, though Revere Pewter has more beige in it. With an LRV of 55, Revere Pewter is also a slightly darker shade than Agreeable Gray.

Revere Pewter was particularly popular several years ago when beiges were more in style. With the rise of all things gray in homes, Agreeable Gray tends to be the go-to shade now.

Agreeable Gray vs. Edgecomb Gray

Edgecomb Gray is another highly popular Benjamin Moore Color.

In comparing them, Edgecomb Gray has more beige, while Agreeable Gray has more gray in it. Both are amazing greige options, but Edgecomb Gray will be lighter and more airy on your walls then Agreeable Gray will be.

Edgecomb Gray has an LRV of 63, meaning it is a color that will reflect a lot of light. Agreeable Gray’s LRV is 60, so it will present as just slightly darker on your walls.

Agreeable Gray vs. Accessible Beige

Accessible Beige, by Sherwin Williams, is another very popular paint color choice. Accessible Beige is still a greige, but has much more beige in it than gray.

While Agreeable Gray’s LRV is 60, Accessible Beige has an LRV of 58. Accessible Beige is still considered a light color, but is on the darker end of the “light” choices.

Agreeable Gray vs. Pale Oak

Pale Oak is another gorgeous, soft shade by Benjamin Moore. It is considerably lighter than Agreeable Gray, with an LRV of 70.

Pale Oak has slightly more beige in it than Agreeable Gray does, and can almost look a little creamy on walls.

Agreeable Gray Color Palettes

Painting the rooms in your house is such a quick, easy way to make your whole home feel fresh, clean and welcoming, but choosing a color can be a headache.  Who hasn’t brought home paint sample after paint swatch looking for just the perfect color?

The first time I owned a home and had to choose paint colors, I was really nervous that I would choose the wrong paint shade. I really didn’t want to have to repaint the room if I did, so I started researching the most popular colors. I figured that the majority of people couldn’t be wrong about what colors looked best in a room.

My research brought me to Agreeable Gray. It set the canvas for my house, and all of the other colors I painted the house flowed from it.

Agreeable Gray is the perfect foundation for a whole house color scheme. Because it is a greige, it has many coordinating colors that go well with it.

Coordinating Color Palette #1

My favorite coordinating colors for Agreeable Gray are Sea Salt, Steamed Milk, and Mega Greige. Because the colors go well together, the transitions between rooms is very understated. Choosing coordinating colors is essential to a well planned whole house color scheme!

If you are nervous about painting your house the wrong color, or worried that that the colors you choose won’t look right, check out this beautiful palette of coordinating colors for Agreeable Gray.

Sherwin Williams Sea Salt

This dreamy blue/green is my favorite color for a bathroom or even a kitchen.  Sea Salt is still considered to be a “neutral,” even though it has a little more pop to it.  It can look more green or blue depending on your lighting, and coordinates perfectly with the other colors listed.  It is also one of Sherwin William’s most popular colors, so you know that it has a wide appeal.

Sea Salt in Bathroom

Sea Salt is a great color for a coastal paint scheme as well. If you’re looking for a relaxing, beach inspired feel, check out the top colors for coastal style homes as selected by the experts at Sherwin Williams.

If you like Sea Salt, but want something with a little more depth, Comfort Gray is gorgeous. While Sea Salt is a neutral, Comfort Gray has always appeared more of a color to me when it is on a wall. It looks absolutely amazing in a bedroom with dark wood furniture and wide white trim.

Sherwin Williams Steamed Milk

Steamed Milk is my unsung hero.  Whoever thought that a creamy white could be so beautiful?  Steamed Milk is my favorite color for a room that does not have a lot of natural light coming in.  In a sunny room, it comes across as not particularly interesting.  But in a dark room, it is pure heaven.  It stands out against white or wood trim, and it makes the whole room feel warm and inviting.

I painted my super high staircase walls with Steamed Milk using an extension pole. Since I had never used one before, I chose this color because it was light enough that it wouldn’t be noticeable if I hit the ceiling with the paint. Thankfully, I didn’t get paint on the ceiling. This tool made painting that tall wall really easy!

Colors that go with Agreeable Gray

It is also a great color to go with oak cabinets, and was just highlighted in my post on best wall colors to go with honey oak cabinets.

You can get a Samplize square of Steamed Milk here.

Sherwin Williams Mega Greige

This beige-brown is a great color for a room that you want to have a little more impact, such as an entryway.  Like Agreeable Gray, it has the perfect combination of gray and brown, making it very versatile. 

Be warned though, this color is much darker than the others discussed, and you may want to grab a sample of it before you paint your whole room in it.  That being said, it easily coordinates with the other colors and really rounds out the list.

Mega Greige Samplize squares are found here.

Colors that Go with Agreeable Gray

Sherwin Williams Pure White

If you want to paint your trim, Pure White is a great color to choose. As the name implies, it is a white-white, not a beige or yellow white. I’ve also heard it referred to as a clean white.

If you are nervous about painting your trim, check out my DIY trim painting guide for some tips and tricks! It is actually a lot easier than you would expect!

Coordinating Color Palette #2

Here is another example of a coordinating color palette for Agreeable Gray. This is the color scheme that Sherwin Williams lists for Agreeable Gray.

Agreeable Gray is the main color for the home or room. I like to call this the anchoring shade, because it serves as an anchor for the other elements of the room. A good trim color is Extra White, which is a bright white color that goes with almost any paint shade. For an accent wall, Coral Rose gives a pop of color. Finally, Incredible White is a good shade to put in nearby rooms, as it will blend nicely with Agreeable Gray.

Agreeable Gray Paint Color Review (Plus The Best Coordinating Colors!)

This Post Has 118 Comments

  1. Hi Lauren, I’m looking to update my home and apparently Agreeable Gray is the most popular color. I got a sample of it and painted my entryway and hallway, (which now are a very very light tannish color), and now both areas seem so dark to me. Probably because there’s very little natural light in the entryway and none in the hallway.

    Do you have any suggestions as to what to do? I like the Agreeable Gray because it’s a “greige” type color and would go with the house. I love the Steamed Milk and plan to use it in my kitchen. Also, I love the what you did with your cabinets to update them. My cabinets are the “oak” color that used to be popular and now I know what to do with them.

    1. Hi Nancy! I have a few questions about the entryway and hallways that maybe will help guide us in the right directions.
      First, is your trim white or wood colored? With wood colored trim, those darker tones are going to make the room and the paint color appear darker. You may want to consider a lighter paint color if you have wood trim.
      Second, what color were your walls before? A darker color underneath could be making the paint appear darker. Conversely, if your walls were lighter before, this change may come as a shock to your eyes.
      Third, did you paint the whole wall or just sections of it? I find that when I only paint sections, I have a really hard time visualizing how it will look when its completed and second guess myself. Then, after painting everything and trimming it out, it is like a breath of fresh air. If you’ve only done sections, I would consider doing one whole small wall, trim and everything, and then seeing how you feel about that small section.
      Last, adding a large mirror in the entryway or some light colored area rugs will definitely help to bring more brightness into the room.
      If you consider all those things and come to the conclusion that Agreeable Gray is really just making the area feel too dark, maybe you would be better off choosing a lighter greige. Both Eider White and Incredible White are really beautiful colors in the greige family that would coordinate well with Steamed Milk.
      I hope that your updating goes smoothly! I’m glad that my oak kitchen update has given you some inspiration. Please let me know how your kitchen turns out!

  2. Thank you so much for your awesome advice on what color paint to use. I am tryng to paint an apartment and the tile in the bathroom and kitchen have gray in them, so I am painting all the wood cabinets, chair railings and trim Pure White and the walls will be Repose Gray. So I needed to come up with a paint color for the living/dining room, hall and bed room so I am either going to use Steamed Milk or Sea Salt.

    1. Repose Gray is another gorgeous greige and it’s going to look amazing with the Pure White trim! You can’t go wrong with either Steamed Milk or Sea Salt – they’ll both be great with it. Good luck!

  3. Considering paint colors for my living room of which one wall extends to the dining area. My sofas are chocolate brown with accent pillows that have burnt orange and beige. My other furniture is dark brown/oak. What colors are suggested to lighten and soften the room since there isn’t a lot of natural light. The current color on wall is yellowish.

    1. Hi Marty! It sounds like you have a lot of darker colors in the room, so of the ones listed above, I would definitely go with Steamed Milk. It would go well with the dark wood and oak, and would be really nice with your couch and pillow combo. I also think Eider White would be a great shade if you like something more in the gray family. Both are light with a hint of color, and would really brighten up your space.

    2. Hi. We just moved in to a big house and all the walls are a stark white. Kitchen cabinets also white with black appliances with gray and white granite counters tops. All floors are gray. Pottery Barn furniture, so dark woods. Living room sectional in an “oat” color. I’m struggling with paint colors for the living room/dining room/ and master bedroom. I think I’m sticking with the sea salt for the bathrooms. My question is with gray floors, not sure what neutral goes on the walls. I like warm, cozy and inviting. I love switching out pillows and adding a dash of color for the different holidays. Jute carpets. Replace or keep? Do they go with gray floors? Thanks for your help!

      1. What was the answer regarding flooring? I love agreeable gray but cannot figure out what carpet matches it the best for our basement remodel. I was hoping you had a suggestion. Thanks.

        1. Hi Tammy! I love a greige carpet for several reasons. First, it goes with brown leather furniture or dark wood well. Second, it is perfect with gray or beige walls. Third, it is perfectly neutral. And last, it hides dirt well! It truly goes with anything, and won’t go out of style as quickly as a carpet that is a color. I find that brown carpets, though they can go with gray, tend to date a room to the time when beige was super popular. Cream colored carpets are nice as well, but so easily stained and worn. Here is an example of the color I am thinking of: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Home-Decorators-Collection-Wholehearted-III-Color-Raw-Linen-Twist-12-ft-Carpet-HDF0813110/310491468. Good luck Tammy!

      2. Joann, I’m not sure how I didn’t see this post earlier, so I’m sorry for the delay in responding!

        All the things you mentioned are great together! Gray floors, neutral walls, jute carpets – all are super in style right now! For the walls, you can definitely do a beige, greige or gray if you want to keep it in a neutral family. A color like Repose Gray is a greige with more gray than beige, and would probably work well for you. You could also go with a creamy white color for very classy look. Aesthetic White, Steamed Milk or Creamy would be some good options. If you want some more choices, check out this post on the top colors from Sherwin Williams (https://www.loveremodeled.com/sherwin-williams-top-paint-colors/).

  4. Light French Gray is also beautiful! Did my living room and had one accent wall Peppercorn!
    Looked awesome!

  5. I have big open spaces and will use your suggestions with adding Warm Stone SW7032. Could you suggest a big pop of color to compliment such as a red??

    Thx

    1. Hi Diane! I’m not super familiar with red shades, but I did a quick look and Antique Red (SW7587) or Enticing Red (SW6600) look like they would go really nicely with Warm Stone. Warm Stone is such a pretty shade. Overall though, my suggestion would be to go to Sherwin Williams and pick up some paint swatches. Different lighting can really alter the look of a color. Choose several swatches – one that leans pink, one that leans orange, one that leans brown, etc., and take them home to see how they look in your home’s lighting. That should give you a pretty good idea of what will look nice. Remember that a dark color is going to look really dark on your wall if the room doesn’t have a lot of light, so choose accordingly. Good luck! Let me know what you choose!

  6. Way too blah….sorry…

    1. Hey Michael! The thing about decorating is, everyone has their own style and preferences 🙂 Hope you find some great colors for your home!

  7. Hi Lauren,

    I want to paint my whole downstairs which includes the living room, dining room, kitchen in one color but I’m stuck with what paint color to used. I have yellowish floors with a lot of dark brown color furniture and lots of natural light except for the hallway but only partway. Do you have any suggestions or ideas? I love the greige colors specially that I want to change the decor to farmhouse. Thank you!

    1. Hi Wilemis! I think that a griege that leans more towards gray than beige is best in your situation. This will help to ensure that the yellow in the floors and the beige in the walls don’t become overpowering. For example, Accessible Beige is a beige greige, where as Agreeable Gray is a very similar depth color that is a gray greige. With that said, Agreeable Gray would likely go very well. Colonnade Gray and Pussywillow are good options too. They’re a little darker than Agreeable Gray, which may work in your home since there is lots of natural light. I’d also check out Anew Gray because its a great shade and very popular. My advice would be to pick up swatches of those colors and see what looks best with your lighting and against your flooring and cabinets. All of them will go great with farmhouse decor too! Good luck!!

  8. Just painted my kitchen and family room Wool Skein. I thought Agreeable Gray would be a nice color for the dining room which is next to these rooms. I have darker dining room furniture and medium wood floors.

    1. Wool Skein is such a pretty color! I agree, Agreeable Gray would look really nice with it!

  9. Loved the article. We’re currently in the final stages of a kitchen Reno. Wall cabinets Kichen made Bonsai green; base cabinets light honey maple; white backsplash; & countertops Calacatta Classique Quartz. I’m agonizing over the paint color. Any suggestions?

    1. Hi Cecilia! I’m not sure exactly what color the wall cabinets are. I found a Bonsai Tint paint shade from Sherwin Williams, but it is lighter than a true bonsai green. Either way, I think that you probably want to go with a light neutral wall color. This will allow the green cabinets to really stand out. If you add a color to the wall, I fear that you’ll end up with a very bright kitchen and your eyes won’t know where to land. With just the cabinets as a color, they’ll really stand out and be a showcase. It sounds beautiful with the light maple cabinets and the quartz tops. I would look at a warm white, such as Steamed Milk, Creamy or Dover White. If you like a cooler white, I paired a dark green with Eider White in my powder room, so you can see how it looks. Good luck with your kitchen renovation!

  10. Hello.. I am painting my family room and kitchen which is an open Agreeable Gray. I would like to do an accent wall in my family room where the TV is. Do you have any suggestions on a color? Also I would like to paint my cabinets in the kitchen and bathrooms as I am doing AG throughout. Do you have a color that will compliment AG walls when it comes to the cabinets and accent wall

    1. Hi Noble! An accent wall can TOTALLY be whatever color you like! Agreeable Gray is a warm color, so I would stick to something that is also a warm shade. All colors come in both warm and cool shades though, so once you choose a color, check with someone if you’re not sure if its warm or cool. For something that would go well on both cabinets and walls, I like Loyal Blue. It is a dark blue, but not quite navy. White is always good for cabinets, and always in style. Some good warm whites are Alabaster or Pearly Whites. Good luck with your painting!

  11. I need help! We are having our house painted in a few weeks. Our dark Wood cabinets and countertops are really throwing me. we have white trim.
    Would agreeable gray work?

    1. Hi Starr! Truly, I’ve never seen Agreeable Gray NOT work! It is Sherwin Williams’ top selling color for a reason. It is light enough that it won’t make the room feel dark with the dark wood accents, but still a solid greige. Because of gray and tan undertones, it goes with anything! I’ve used it with dark wood furniture and it looks great. If you’re still on the fence, pick up a small sample from Sherwin Williams and just put a swipe by the cabinets. Or, get one of those Samplize stick ons. Good luck!

  12. I am repainting my home from the earthy yellow tones to grey, as of now I’m looking at Passive Grey from SW, I plan on using this as the main color as I have an open plan so entrance, halls kitchen dining area, where I’m struggling is my living room. It is entered from my kitchen by a small opening, I have cherry flooring, tan leather furniture, and one large window but its north-facing. I use chantilly lace for all my trim ( crown molding, baseboards, and doors, I was thinking of painting my living room white. What are your thoughts and if so what white would you suggest. If not can you offer a color that would work ….thanks so much!

    1. Hi Cindy! I used Passive in the basement of one of my homes and liked it a lot. It is a nice, light gray that gives a nice ambience to a room. It is a perfect choice for the main areas of your home. For your living room, I think that a nice white would be a good choice. The dark colors that you have in the flooring, set off by the white trim, would look nice with a pretty shade of white. Because you have crown molding though, I would suggest choosing one with a hint of color. This will make the moulding, trim and doors stand out a little more. Ivory Lace is a pretty white, with yellow undertones, and may tie nicely with the wood. Aesthetic White is also a great white, and one of Sherwin Williams’ top selling colors. I like top selling colors because this means that it has wide appeal. A third great white is Panda White. It has tan undertones mostly. Check out these colors and see what you think! Good luck choosing!

  13. Hello! I love you paint color choices and am using some of them in my home. I’m doing agreeable gray because it goes with everything. I’m doing a white kitchen. I want to paint my island with something that has a little contrast. I’ve got 10 for ceilings and my kitchen, dining, and living rooms face North. Any suggestions?

    1. Hi Amanda! Since you’re going with a white kitchen, I may consider doing a black or blue/green colored island. Choosing a color is completely dependent on your preferences, but I always think that a blue or greenish pop of color (such as SW Watery) in a white kitchen looks really nice. If that’s too bright for you, navy may work well (SW Naval was a recent color of the year). Last, gray islands are very popular in a white kitchen. I think a truer gray is better than a greige on an island, so something like SW Light French Gray or SW Stonington Gray would be nice. I love contrasting islands – I’m sure it will look amazing when you’re done!

  14. We have honey oak kitchen cabinets. Thinking of doing white countertops with a teal/turquoise backsplash. Ideas for paint colors, please!

    1. Hi Ann! My preference in design is not to have too many colors competing for attention in a room. So since you have teal/turquoise in the backsplash, and honey oak cabinets, I would go with a neutral paint color. My top choice is gray, because its very in style and will go so well with the other colors you mentioned. Passive and Light French Gray are nice, light grays. For a darker gray, Mindful Gray may be a good option too. It sounds like it’ll be beautiful when you’re done!

  15. Hi Lauren, I enjoyed your article! My husband and I built an open concept home two years ago and painted the entire interior agreeable gray with white trim and white cabinets. We love it! Our kitchen island has taken some abuse with scuff marks, etc. I’m thinking of painting it a charcoal color. My countertops are a white with gray & black. I’d appreciate any suggestions as I really like your style. Thank you.

    1. Hi Judy! Thanks so much! It sounds like your kitchen is gorgeous! I love your idea to paint the island a charcoal color. Painted islands are really in style right now. Traditional charcoal colors have blue in them, and Sherwin Williams actually has a Charcoal Blue color you could check out. For a more grayish color (which is the color that I usually think of as “charcoal” as opposed to a blue color), check out Gauntlet Gray or Porpoise. Both are dark grays that would go well with the rest of your color scheme. Good luck!

  16. Thank you, Lauren. You always give the best advice and I appreciate your timely response. Happy decorating!

  17. Great article! We are building a home right now, so I’m knee deep in research! I love agreeable gray and am planning on using it in the great room/kitchen/dining area. We will have white shaker cabinets, white trim and brown (bernina maple bellavista) flooring. So…my question. Does agreeable gray work well with oil rubbed bronze lighting fixtures? I’m looking at ORB fixtures with a clear or seeded glass. I’m not opposed to black or brushed nickel fixtures, but like the look of ORB, but cannot visualize if they are complementary. Thoughts?

    1. Hi Holly! Your new home sounds beautiful! Yes, Agreeable Gray would go very nicely with bronze tones. It has a good amount of beige in it, similar to the tones in oil rubbed bronze. That makes it a great choice for you!

  18. I have a beautiful cherry wood dining room set but am having trouble deciding the best colour for the walls. The floor is an med oak colour & their is Big bay window which allows a lot of light. The rest of the main floor is shades of a warm grey.
    Thank you

    1. Hi Gwen! It sounds like there are some red tones in the room from the cherry set and perhaps from the oak floor as well. Because of this, I would probably lean towards a creamy white (ex. Crisp Linen) or a light blue. Check out this post on the best blue paint colors – I think Tradewind would be a good pick. Also, Comfort Gray, which is actually a green shade, looks gorgeous with cherry wood. All of these colors would coordinate nicely with a warm gray. Good luck choosing!

      1. Help! Want to use steamed milk on walls going from kitchen into family room since it gets little natural light in fam rm. I have black appliances and honey oak kitchen cabinets…should I also paint the cabinets…but what if I’m using steamed milk?
        Wish you could come over!!
        MB

        1. Hi Mary Beth! I wish I could too! I think you can absolutely paint the walls Steamed Milk and be done with it. It’ll go great with both black appliances and honey oak cabinets. But if you want, you can paint the cabinets too. White is ALWAYS in for cabinets. You could go with a warm white like Alabaster to go with the Steamed Milk. Good luck!

  19. I have high ceilings that do not need painting, very wide woodwork also does not need painting. Honey Oak cabinets I will change out knobs and switch plates for lights. One large space that has open floor plan living room, kitchenette and open space to bathroom area. Looking to stay with one color really just to freshen up the room. The color now is almost a Sunflower golden color. HELP with another color

  20. My home is a 50’s “cottage” with light oak trim. My wallpaper/painter person says never paint natural trim. I am confused. Is it ok to paint trim in kitchen and leave remainder of house natural? My cabinets are beige in kitchen -I’d like to paint trim to match. The remainder of house is cottage white. Thank you so much.

    1. Hi Shari! There are no hard and fast rules, but I do think that you should consider how the house is set up. If the kitchen is closed off to the other rooms and there is a good stopping place for the white trim, then I think it’d be fine to paint it. But, if there trim is continuous from the kitchen to another room it may look weird to have the color suddenly change from white to wood. Good luck deciding!

  21. I have stained trim and I am struggling with what colors will look good next to the wood trim. My living room, dining room, and kitchen are all open to each other can you help me with a color pallet that will work with stained wood trim. Thanks

  22. I just painted my living room with agreeable grey and I am looking for advice on new furniture color. I was thinking of a solid colored couch and some sort of patterned side chairs. We have medium stained wood, I am tossing the idea around of painting it white but I know that will be a huge undertaking.

    1. Hi Colleen! First, I love that Agreeable Gray can go with both white or wood trim usually. If you do decide to paint your trim, here is a tutorial on how to do it. I painted all the trim in a previous home, and while it takes some time (because of the sheer amount of trim in a home), it wasn’t as painful as I expected! Second, I think a solid colored couch is always the best bet. Since couches are expensive, getting a solid color means you can change the color scheme in the room as frequently as you want without spending the money for a whole new couch. For colors that will go nicely, you have tons of options! I would recommend taking a look at this page on how to choose a color, because I have several color schemes listed on there that may give you some inspiration. I’ve paired Agreeable Gray with cream, turquoise, navy, pink, sage green, browns and grays (not all of those together in the same room, of course). Truly, because Agreeable Gray has both gray and beige undertones, you can pair it with mostly any color!

  23. My house has antique white wide crown molding, doors, and bathroom cabinets. The kitchen cabinets are ivoire. The counter tops in kitchen are a black granite with specks of gold or tan. I would love to paint the bulk of the house Agreeable Gray. I was also thinking of Sea Salt for the bathroom. What are your thoughts? I am wondering how that would look with the trim and cabinets.

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Gloria! I think that your plan sounds lovely! Shades of white always look nice with Agreeable Gray and Sea Salt, and the black granite sounds pretty neutral overall. I think it’ll be beautiful!

  24. Hi Lauren-
    I found your blog very helpful. Thank you!
    We just moved into a very brown house and we are trying to make it more greige. For our main color we went with anew gray and love it! Next is our basement. It is the only place that has a dark, almost espresso trim with a greige carpet and darker gray furniture that will be coming in. With a dark wood trim, what do you suggest? Would agreeable gray be too dark still, especially in a basement with dark espresso trim? Maybe alabaster? The final obstacle is they have a stained wooden (think early american stain) shiplap wall, framed out with the espresso trim (why it’s framed out… I don’t know!) on one end of the basement. I was thinking of painting the shiplap a dark charcoal? Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated! THANK YOU!!

    1. Hi Leah! I love homes like you’re describing! So many fun painting projects and it will look like a new place when you’re done! For the basement, I would recommend going with a very light color. I think that Agreeable Gray might not be the best choice, as you have gray furniture and the dark trim. Instead, I may go with Benjamin Moore’s Edgecomb Gray. It has a little bit more beige in it, and while it is still a greige, it’ll accent the gray chairs and dark wood a little better I think. For other options, check out this post on paint colors that go with wood trim. For the shiplap wall, you can truly do whatever you want, but I would probably go with a white (like Alabaster) if I was going to go with a darker wall color, and only do the dark charcoal if I was going with a very light wall color. With the space being in the basement, I am always hesitant to add too much darkness to the room. So as an accent, its fine, but painting everything a dark color will just make it feel small and dim. I think it’ll be beautiful when you’re done!

      1. Thank you so much for your suggestions! Hadn’t thought about edgecomb gray yet, but I love that idea.

  26. Hi Lauren,
    We just painted our entire main floor agreeable grey,. It’s Scotty open floor plan that includes dining room with medium oak floors; kitchen with beige & grey linoleum and oak cabinets, then our family room with darker furniture and linen color carpet. I am not very creative and trying to decide the best color dining table and rug to go with. We were thinking dark espresso color, but it may be too dark. What accents like dining table look best? What about art too? Thank you in advance!! I really enjoy your blog.

    1. Hi Mart! It sounds like you have a lot of brown tones in your home already. Instead of adding another brown wood for a dining room table, I may take a look at white tables like this one, or something with gray tones like this one. Of course, a table choice is totally dependent on your personal style! For art, again, this is your preference. There is a great gallery, ThoseWhoBloom.com, that has a nice array of artwork. I would choose an accent color scheme and choose artwork within that scheme. Good luck and thank you for reading my blog!

  27. Hi Lauren, Love your article and suggestions for colors! I’m painting my Master bedroom and Master Bath Rainwashed (I like Sea Salt too) however, do u have any suggestions for a coordinating color like an accent wall color? Also, what color would u do for the ceiling? Sea Salt and Rainwashed were my favs however, once I received the color swatches I liked Rainwashed better because it wasn’t too gray. Thanks for any input/suggestions you might have.

    1. Hi Laura! I agree – Rainwashed is nice because it has a bit more color in it than Sea Salt. For the ceiling, I would go with Pure White. It is the perfect all purpose white (I always use it on my trim too). For an accent wall, I would probably go with something muted since Rainwashed is going to show as a definite color (I like neutrals though! This is completely dependent on your taste and the other colors in the room). A nice white like Roman Column, a gray such as Agreeable Gray, or a darker version of Rainwashed such as Halcyon Green would be pretty. Good luck with your painting!

  28. Lauren,
    I have been reading your article about Honey Oak cabinets which we have. We also have natural pine trim throughout house. I currently have Analytical Gray in my Kitchen now which doesn’t seem to blend well and seems blah. I am leaning towards Rainwashed but our Kitchen/dining area has large opening into our living room which is painted SW Dry Dock. Do you think these will go well together? Also I am needing suggestion on our family room that has cathedral ceilings and lots of natural light and Same pine trim. Thanks in advance!

    1. Hi Christie! Analytical Gray has greenish undertones (leaning towards sage green), so I can see why it may appear blah in your home with pine trim. Rainwashed will definitely brighten things up, and will go well with Dry Dock as well. For the dining room, check out this post on paint colors that go with wood trim. Also, I’d take a look at a light neutral to go with the colors you already have, such as Steamed Milk or Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray.

  29. We are building our dream house now and I’m trying to figure out paint colors. I think I’m doing our master in SW Agreeable Gray and the master bath in SW Sea Salt. We have shiplap on one wall in the master bathroom do I do it all including the shiplap in SW Sea Salt or do the shiplap in something different like SW Agreeable Gray or SW Repose Gray. Thanks!

    1. Hi Lisa! That will be beautiful! I would recommend doing the shiplap in white (like Pure White or Alabaster). It will provide the accent look you’re going for when adding a shiplap wall. I’ve seen shiplap done in navy and black, but for a classic farmhouse look, white is the top choice. Enjoy your dream home!

    2. Thanks so much for responding. One more question for you – would you put SW Agreeable Gray or SW Repose Gray in the hall where there will be not much light.

  30. Your information is so helpful- Thank you!!

    I LOVE your suggestions for this neutral palette! If following this color scheme throughout the house,
    what color do you paint the ceilings?

    1. Hi Jenni! I’m glad you like it! I would paint the ceilings Pure White. Have a great day!

  31. Hi Lauren,

    Just purchased my dream home and have spent the last two weeks trying to pick the perfect color scheme. It seems like I change my mind every other day. I’m painting a majority of the home in Agreeable Gray. Do you have suggestions that would work well with Agreeable Gray in a dinning room that would contrast well with white crown molding? What earthy tones jive well with Agreeable Gray (I’m a bachelor and sea salt is a bit too feminine for my taste).

    1. Hi Tom! For earthy tones for that coordinate with Agreeable Gray, check out Mega Greige, for a darker version of Agreeable Gray. Also, for a darker brown, Keystone Gray would pair well. If you like green, Clary Sage is nice.

  32. Hi
    I need help picking a color I chose Glamour and Cocoa from Sherwin Williams for my kitchen with honey oak cabinets in my living room with oatmeal color couches and I do not like it at all it turned out to be too much on the mauve purple side. I would like to keep the dining room which comes between these two rooms but is enclosed with in two walls the same color but I’d like to change the other two rooms and don’t know what color to choose I like the greeters and I like tops and I just want a clean looking color with some color. What do you suggest? Please let me know Because I cannot seem to find a color that a contrast

    1. Hi Fatina! I’m sorry you didn’t like the color you chose! It’s always a pain to repaint a room, but you’ll be happy when it is done. For a taupe that is less purple, you may want to look at Unfussy Beige. I find that when choosing a color, it’s best to go light. Good luck!

  33. Are you familiar with the SW color alpaca? If so do you know if it will work well with agreeable gray. Was thinking of using the agreeable gray in bedroom and the alpaca in bathroom but the bathroom opens up in the master bed.

    1. Hi Rhonda! I always use Pure White for trim. It is a great all purpose white.

    2. Hi Sarah! Alpaca is a nice shade of greige. To my eye, it looks as though it has a bit more of a purple undertone to it than Agreeable Gray. I don’t think you will notice much of a difference between the two once they’re on the walls. It may just look like they’re the same color but look different because of the lighting. I don’t think they’ll clash though!

  34. I just painted my master bedroom agreeable gray. Room is facing east. What color of trim do you suggest? Thank you.
    Rhonda

    1. Hi Rhonda! I always go with Pure White for trim! It goes very nicely with Agreeable Gray.

  35. Lauren,
    I am looking for neutral light colors for the exterior of my home. Would these colors work on the exterior? My garage is west facing and we want to paint the doors an off white with a high reflective value, without being blinding. What would your recommendations be? Thank you in advance.

    1. Hi Mary! Yes, these colors would definitely work for an exterior. Outside, they’re all going to look a little lighter, due to the bright sun. So if you want something a little darker, go with Mega Greige instead of Agreeable Gray, and maybe Comfort Gray instead of Sea Salt. For an off white with a high reflective value, check out Paperwhite or Whitetail. I’ll be it’ll look beautiful!

  36. Lauren, help!
    The living/dining/entryway rooms in our new (to us) house is currently painted orange, the floors are the orange-est oak I’ve seen, and the area has very limited natural light. There is also a large tabby fireplace. What color(s) would help brighten up this space and compliment the floors and tabby? I’ve been leaning toward the light blue-gray palette, but just don’t know. Thank your for your suggestions!

    1. Hi Jill! Congrats on the new home! A light blue-gray palette would actually work nicely to coordinate with but also downplay the orange in the wood floors. Check out Misty, NorthStar, Olympus White and Lazy Gray!

  37. I love your blog!
    We are building a house at the coast. I have chosen to have white shaker style kitchen cabinets with Uba Tuba (black) granite countertops, and a beige/sand color subway tile backsplash. The kitchen and family room are one big open area that I want to paint Agreeable Gray. The master bedroom and bath will be Sea Salt, and the two other bedrooms will be Accessible Beige and Tradewind. There is a bath between these two bedrooms. What color would coordinate well with the other colors? There is no window in this bathroom. The floors throughout the home are gray.
    Also, I was looking at a green exterior such as Clary Sage with white trim, so what would be a good coordinating color for the exterior doors and shutters? Thank you!

    1. Hi Linda! Thank you! Your home sounds like it will be lovely! As for paint colors, I love every color you’ve chosen. In the bathroom, you have lots of great options because of the color palette you’ve chosen. Maybe take a look at Repose Gray for a greige, Lemon Meringue for a soft yellow, or Gossamer Veil for a gray. On the exterior, Urbane Bronze or Tricorn Black would look very nice with Clary Sage. I would also consider doing white shutters with an Urbane Bronze door or something similar. I hope your house is coming along well!

  38. What name the name of trimming

    1. Hi Josie! The trim color is Pure White.

  39. I am trying to redo the colors in my house. Right now I have a sunny yellow in the kitchen, rust/brick color in the dining room, and a sand color in the hallways. I love color, but am also ready for a change and thought that adding pops of color in the decor would be better. I am struggling with how to begin. My decor is beach and caribbean,. Any suggestions??

    1. Hi Cristina! I love a greige for a neutral color that just about any color goes with. Agreeable Gray is a great option. As the name implies, it agrees with just about any pop of color you want to put with it. The nice thing about a neutral wall color is that it allows the accents to really make an impact. If you hate the idea of a neutral, here is a post on popular colors for beach homes. Check it out for some ideas!

  40. What are your thoughts for kitchen cabinet color with agreeable gray walls? Counter tops are uba tuba that have all the colors in it (black, grey, light cream, amber, and green). I would like to downplay the green hue and bring any of the other colors. I do love the contrast, so I don’t want to have cabinets that actually “blend” in tone on tone with the agreeable gray walls. I have whimsy light beige curtains that let in a alot of light in the afternoon and the cabinets are facing west. Suggestions?

    1. Hi Lynn! For a white cabinet, Greek Villa would look lovely and bright. For a gray cabinet color, you may have difficulty using a true gray shade next to Agreeable Gray. I would stick to a greige that coordinates with Agreeable Gray, such as Mega Greige. Greige cabinet colors tend to go well with gold or black hardware. Hope this helps!

  41. Thank you so much! We want to avoid white (too many dirty kid & teenager hands in my kitchen at this point haha). What about a neutral color – somewhere in between beige and gray. Oh, and I was wrong. The wall color is anew grey, not agreeable grey. Help!

  42. I painted my kitchen and eating area mega greige. I have a bay window/patio door and have rockweed painted around that area for more accent color. It makes my mega greige look purple at times. I have brown counter tops with a splash of other colors in there. Mostly brown, tan, black, and very little grey. I want to change the color around the bay window/patio door. I have the golden oak kitchen cabinets that have to stay for a few more years. I would like to tie some gray into the kitchen since I have the stainless steel appliances. What are your thoughts?

    1. Hi! With the warm tones in the kitchen, I would stick to a warm gray (aka a greige). Popular Gray may go nicely, and of course Agreeable Gray would be lovely. Either of those shades would coordinate with the granite, cabinets and wall color. Check out this post for other greige paint colors!

  43. We are painting our dining room in SW Natural Linen above the chair rail and SW Antler Velvet below the rail. The kitchen, hall, and living room will all be painted in Natural Linen as they all connect with the dining room. What shade of white, in a semi-gloss, would you recommend for the trim in these areas? I would prefer something other than a bright white. Thank you.

    1. Hi Susan! What pretty colors you chose! Ivory Lace is a nice off-white that should still provide a little bit of contrast for you. If you add too much color to your trim, it won’t stand out from your wall color, which is fine if thats what you want, but just something to consider. Hope this helps!

  44. Doing some updates on our main floor, SW agreeable gray on all walls (foyer, great room, kitchen, dining & sunroom) and SW topsail in powder room. Kitchen cabinets are getting painted white with a white & gray granite for countertops. Now I need to choose a vinyl plank (wood look) floor and I am having a difficult time choosing a color. Any recommendations? Most of our furniture is neutral/earth tones.

    1. Hi Stacey! Sounds like the house will be lovely! For a vinyl plank floor (which is a great choice in terms of durability!), I would recommend going with something in a medium wood color. The gray wood looks have been in style for a bit and will probably go out fairly soon, so I would probably steer away from that shade unless you like to change your flooring frequently. Light wood is also trendy right now, but I’m not sure it will have staying power. Really dark wood had its moment as well, and orange wood is out. So that leaves medium toned wood look floors :). They’re classic, always in style, and go with everything. Hope this helps!

  45. We painted our open concept kitchen/living/dining room in SW Agreeable grey. We are going to be getting new kitchen cabinets and a new island. Our trim is white and we have wood-look lvp floors. Also, we are looking to sell next year so we want our cabinet color to appeal to buyers. What color do you suggest? And thank you.

    1. Hi Susan! White cabinets are classic and always in style. Gray has been popular for a few years now, and navy is trendy, but probably won’t last. If it were me, I would go with white. I think white cabinets are likely to appeal to the most buyers. Good luck with your home sale!

  46. Hi! We just painted our kitchen cabinets Agreeable Gray and love how they turned out! Now, we are looking for a wall color for our kitchen, dining, and living area; the rooms are all in one open area. I’d like a neutral wall color but also want it to contrast with the Agreeable Gray on the cabinets. Any suggestions? Thanks for your advice!

    1. Hi Leigh Ann! You could go a lot of ways with this. For a white, check out Alabaster. For a darker greige, take a look at Dorian Gray. And for a pop of color that is still a neutral, try it with Sea Salt. Good luck picking a color!

  47. Hello! Our home is a very open floor plan…you paint one room and 3/4 of the house needs to be painted. We’ve decided to do Agreeable Gray on all walls, Alabaster on upper kitchen cabinets, Peppercorn lower cabinets, marble countertop, flat black pulls and knobs, Pure White trim/doors. We currently have our open split staircase walls painted similar to SW Clarey Sage as accent walls and would like to keep them…but when I put the Clarey Sage 12×12 sample next to Agreeable Gray that I slapped on various places throughout the house, it looks awful! These accent walls happen to be the 2 walls that will not butt against a wall with Agreeable Gray…so it might work? Any suggestions for a similar green? Second question, we also are refinishing our red oak floors (ick!). We’re thinking of going very light on the floor…thoughts?

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Laura! Your house is going to be gorgeous when you’re finished! I love your paint color choices! Since the Clary Sage won’t be right next to the Agreeable Gray, you might be able to make it work. If it were me, I would paint the other walls how you want them, and then take a look at how it works with the Clary Sage (since the Clary Sage is already painted, no harm done!). For similar greens that might go better with Agreeable Gray, Escape Gray can look really green depending on the lighting. Is has a lot more gray in it than Clary Sage, but is a great shade. Another good green is Contented. It has more green than Escape Gray, and more blue than Clary Sage. It should go better with Agreeable Gray as well. For the floors, light wood colors are in style right now for sure! I would steer away from a yellowy looking floor color and go more towards an ash, but I think it’ll be very pretty! Good luck Laura!

  48. Hi Lauren, love the color ideas. Thinking of bluish gray for our new bedroom. We are definitely getting carpet and I like the linen look (basket weave color). Which colors would you suggest.

    1. Hi Linda! Check out this post on gray paint colors. You’ll be able to see all the ones with bluish undertones. Off the top of my head, Olympus White and Lattice are some grays with a blue undertone.

  49. Lauren,
    Love this site. We are getting ready to sell our house and want an interior paint color that appeals to the masses. We want to paint all the rooms the same color. The house is very open and sunny with 12 foot ceilings. You can stand in one area and see the great room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast area. The cupboards and trim are white and the floors are ceramic tile in a light beige with some gray in them. I have a navy blue sofa/love seat. Please help me select a greige paint color. I think you’ll say agreeable gray but I just need confirmation. Also, what about the bedrooms. Should we paint them the same or can you suggest another color(s). We are also replacing the countertops with granite. I’ve heard that countertops are trending toward lighter colors. Any suggestions on what to do there? Thanks very much

    1. Hi Lori! Agreeable Gray is a great choice. Super versatile and wide appeal. If you’re just looking to paint it to sell, I would stick with one color. It makes the place look like a blank canvas, which is what home buyers want. For an alternative to Agreeable Gray, Repose Gray is also very popular. For the countertops, white quartz is very in style. Good luck on your home sale!

  50. Hi!
    I just came across your blog and I thought your posts were super helpful! So thanks for all the info in the posts!

    It got me thinking…We recently moved into a new house! It has all oak trim and cabinets, wood (same colors as the cabinets) floors in the kitchen and eating area, and greige carpet throughout the rest of the house. Most of the walls of the house are painted in Agreeable Gray, with the exception of the kitchen and eating area which is Optimistic Yellow. I’m not a super big fan of gray. However, my husband likes it; and even though it’s not what I would’ve chosen myself, I do think it looks nice! So, in the interest of saving time and money, my we agreed that it wasn’t worth painting over the Agreeable Gray at this point—which is fine! We did compromise and decided to paint the kitchen and eating area though because I don’t really love yellow. I want to choose a lighter color so that it feels light and airy, but homey at the same time. I love blue-green colors and kind of always pictured having a blue/green kitchen, but I don’t want it to be over-powering, and whatever color we choose for the kitchen walls will meet up next to the Agreeable Gray walls. I haven’t tried any samples yet, but I keep coming back to rainwashed and sea salt. Maybe I might like to go with more of a light green though? Haha, Do you have any colors you would recommend for us for the kitchen??

    Also, in our master bathroom, there is kind of a charcoal black tile and a beige countertop with oak trim and cabinets. I’m not sure of the specific paint color in there, but it’s kind of a tan/brown color that I’m not crazy about. I might want to lighten it up while still making it feel homey and comfortable. Do you have any advice for that room? Our master bedroom is Agreeable Gray, for now. But eventually I might want to paint and go with more of a blue-ish color or maybe some kind of white/cream with a blue-ish accent wall.

    Neither of us likes to paint, which is why we haven’t been able to make any final decisions because we really want to get it right so that it’s a one and done thing! Any help you can give us is SO appreciated!! 🙂

    1. Hi Logan! Thanks for your nice words! Congrats on the new house! For the kitchen, Sea Salt and Rainwashed are both great shades – you won’t go wrong with either. One thing to consider, Sea Salt has more gray in it, so it can look more like a neutral depending on your lighting. If you want something that is going to have a bit more pop, go with Rainwashed. I’ve used both, and found that Rainwashed was a better fit for my kitchen, and tend to prefer Sea Salt in bedrooms (though either can be used anywhere). Here is a post on Rainwashed, and another on Sea Salt. If you go with a light green, I would err on the side of one with blue undertones still, to coordinate it with Agreeable Gray. Filmy Green is similar to Sea Salt, but has a bit more green than gray.

      For the bathroom, Healing Aloe is a beautiful chameleon color that goes back and forth between blue and green. It is perfect for a spa like bathroom, and is pretty light. It’ll definitely brighten the space up. Here is a post on paint colors that go with oak cabinets. You might find something on it you like for the bathroom!

      Good luck with your painting!

      1. Thank you so much for your advice!!! I appreciate it so much and feel more confident in choosing the right color! 🙂 Cant wait to look into those recommended posts!

  51. Hello, I really need advice. My open concept living, dinning ,kitchen are painted in SW Collonade Gray, which I love. My master is off my living room and I want a nice flow, I am looking at Comfort Gray, even considered Pussywilliow which is on the same strip at Collonade Gray. I have high ceilings and four large windows in the master. Any advice would be appreciated!
    Thanks Leisa

    1. Hi Leisa! I love Comfort Gray – it will look gorgeous in your bedroom with high ceilings and a lot of natural light. Between Comfort Gray and Pussywillow, I think you’ll find that Comfort Gray flow better. Happy painting!

  52. Lauren,
    Having trouble deciding on a color to paint my walls for my dining room, living room and hallway. Honey Oak furniture, medium blue carpet, sofa is golden brown. Accent color is currently aqua. I like beige but I know grays are more in. Any suggestions? My kitchen is mint green with oak cabinets. You can see all the rooms at one time but there is one wall that separates the kitchen from the living room. Could that be an accent wall? Really would appreciate any suggestions. I would like to use Valspar paint. Thanks

    1. Hi Terri! First of all, if you like beige, go with beige! The most important consideration when it comes to painting is to choose a color you love. Accessible Beige is a great greige color that leans much more heavily towards beige. It still has a touch of gray in it, so it will be a bit more modern than a traditional beige, but will also coordinate with the shades you mentioned. I am having a little bit of difficulty visualizing the wall separating the kitchen and the living room, but it sounds like it could be an accent wall. With the mint green in the kitchen, you may want to go with more of a neutral for that space though. Unfortunately, I’m not familiar with Valspar colors, but oftentimes the major paint stores have all the formulas for the best sellers. I would bet that Lowes could make you Accessible Beige in Valspar paint if you asked!

  53. Hi Lauren,
    Thanks so much for your suggestion. I looked Accessible Beige up and there is actually a sofa with aqua pillows that match the colors in my room, so I’m sure that color will be great. Thanks again.

    1. Oh good! I’m glad to hear it, Terri!

  54. Hi Lauren,
    What color trim would you suggest to use with Accessible Beige?
    Thanks

  55. Grabbed Agreeable Gray b/c it seems to be the neutral choice. However, after painting the half bath, my family claims it is a most disagreeable color. Thinking about accenting with navy blue on one wall or below the chair rail. Please share suggestions for a particular Navy or blue shade that compliments this gray. Thanks

    1. Hi Laura! So sorry that your family doesn’t love Agreeable Gray! Naval is a nice Navy – very dark though. For a slightly lighter blue, Endless Sea is pretty!

  56. Lauren,
    We are building a home that will have high ceilings with post beams, wood trim/doors. My husband is a hunter so naturally we have deer that will be hanging on the walls (I know, big compromise on my part ;)). Do you have a color that would be airy and compliment the colors of the deer? Along with that, it’s an open floor plan but would like to pick a different color for the kitchen that will compliment living room color. Thank you!

    1. Hi Stephanie! This may be my favorite question ever… what colors compliment a deer, haha! I love Edgecomb Gray for a pale gray that is airy, and I think the colors would work well for you. For a color that goes with it, I like Healing Aloe or Hale Navy. Sea Salt and Palladian Blue are also favorites. Any would look nice as a coordinating color to Edgecomb Gray. Good luck, and I love your willingness to compromise with your husband 🙂
