    Sherwin Williams’ Top Paint Colors

    The Bestselling Paint Colors from Sherwin Williams

    Sherwin Williams paint colors are some of the best paint choices on the market.  Rivaled only by Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams is one of the more top paint companies in the United States.

    Sherwin Williams publishes a list of its top 50 paint colors based on data from 2018. Here is a summary of their top shades in each color family.

    Top Greige Paint Colors from Sherwin Williams

    Agreeable Gray, Repose Gray, and Mindful Gray

    Greige paint colors so popular right now that almost all of the paint colors on Sherwin Williams’ top 50 list are variations of gray or beige.  Because of that, I had a hard time putting just one greige on this condensed list for you.  Here are the top three Sherwin Williams’ greiges that made the list.  

    This post may contain affiliate links. If you have any questions, please see my disclaimer page.

    Agreeable Gray (SW 7029) was actually THE most popular color that was sold by Sherwin Williams in 2018.  Because it is the perfect greige, it goes with anything.  It is definitely a noticeable color yet always understated. 

    Agreeable Gray reminds me of an art gallery wall.  It is soothing and pleasant, perfect for any decor you choose to pair it with.  Its Light Reflective Value (LRV) of 60 puts in in the “light” category of Sherwin William’s colors. 

    With subtle green undertones, Agreeable Gray goes well with both wood colored and white trim.

    Agreeable Gray can go in any room, but is a great choice in the common areas of a home because of its versatility. 

    I like to use Agreeable Gray to anchor my favorite whole house color scheme! Check out how Agreeable Gray goes with other great paint colors.

    Wondering how to pick the perfect paint color?

    I have a great solution for you!

    Samplize sells 12×12 stick on paint squares in almost every paint color. These eco-friendly, peel and stick squares are made from real paint, so they will show you exactly what the paint color will look like.

    I love Samplize squares because they are able to be placed on your wall and peel right off when you’re done. You can move these paint squares around your room to easily tell whether a color will go in your home, with your furnishings and accents, and with your lighting.

    Plus, you can pick the perfect paint color without having to run to the store or open a can of paint, and you won’t be pressured into picking a color because you have a bunch of different sample colors painted on your walls!

    Oh, and you get free shipping and $5 off your first order – that is basically like getting one square for free!

    Repose Gray (SW 7015) is the second greige on the list.  Because of its subtle gray undertones, many would classify it as a greige.

    It goes well in many homes, and is extremely popular with designers and homeowners alike.  It is just slightly darker than Agreeable Gray, as it has a LRV of 58.

    Mindful Gray (SW 7016) is directly below Repose Gray on Sherwin Williams’ color chart.  It has very similar undertones to Repose Gray, but has more depth and looks as though it has more beige in it than Repose Gray. 

    Mindful Gray has an LRV of 48, and while it is still considered to reflect a lot of light, it is darker than the other two greiges listed above.  It, too, truly is a greige color, and carries the versatility that most griege paints do.

    Top Beige Paint Color from Sherwin Williams 

    Accessible Beige

    Accessible Beige (SW 7036) is the most popular beige that Sherwin Williams has right now.  It is a warm beige, with a medium light depth.  Set against white, it will definitely look like a color, but is the beige version of Agreeable Gray’s greige. 

    Since it is a true beige, Accessible Beige does not lean towards yellow, but instead has brown undertones.  It has a LRV of 58, meaning that it reflects a good amount of light.  Accessible Beige is a good color the common areas of a home.  

    Check out this post for all the details on Accessible Beige!

    Top Black Paint Color from Sherwin Williams

    Tricorn Black

    Sherwin Williams’ top selling black is Tricorn Black (SW 6258).  Tricorn Black is a very dark color, with a light reflectance value of 3.  This means that it is one of the darkest colors that Sherwin Williams sells. 

    Tricorn Black does not appear to have any strong undertones, but is rather a true black.

    Top Green Paint Color from Sherwin Williams

    Sea Salt

    The top green color from Sherwin Williams is Sea Salt (SW 6204).  This popular color has been heralded for years as both an amazing shade of green and as a light color that can also act as a neutral. 

    Sea Salt is a light green color reminiscent of a pale green sea.  Sea Salt goes just as well in bedrooms and living rooms as it does in kitchens and bathrooms.

    Sea Salt

    Sea Salt is also featured in my whole house color scheme, as a perfect coordinating color for Agreeable Gray.

    Top Gray Paint Color from Sherwin Williams

    Light French Gray

    Light French Gray (SW 0055) is one of Sherwin Williams’ truest grays.  It is featured in their “Classics” collection, and is one of the few grays on the list that does not have some beige in it. 

    This gray has blue and purple undertones, but looks gray like a storm sky.  It is light and beautiful, and would go well in a living room, bedroom, or nursery.

    Top White Paint Color from Sherwin Williams

    Aesthetic White

    The top selling white from Sherwin Williams in the last year was Aesthetic White (SW 7035).  Aesthetic White is not a pure white, as is has a gray undertone. 

    Though Aesthetic White is a good choice for walls, cabinets or furniture, it has a bit too much tint for trim in my opinion.  This white will look like it is almost white when on the wall, but when paired with true white furniture, trim or cabinets, it will look more like a very light gray or a greige.

    Aesthetic White beat out many great white options to gain Sherwin Williams’ top white spot, so it has wide appeal!

    Top Blue Paint Color from Sherwin Williams

    Gray Screen

    Gray Screen (SW 7071) has the word gray in the name, but is actually a pale blue color. Gray Screen reminds me of a gray morning sky at the ocean.

    It has a LRV of 59, so Sherwin Williams considers it to be pretty light reflecting. It will give off a color on the walls though, and will look nice when paired with white trim.

    Hello, I made the huge mistake of having our entire interior painted Grey Screen thinking it was Grey. My question is what are some complimentary colors that would go with this? I would like it to not look so blue. Thank You

    Hi Melissa! I'm sorry you don't like your paint color! Gray Screen has a lot of blue undertone. To make it look less blue, I have two suggestions. First, try changing your light bulbs. Cooler light bulbs are going to accentuate the blue in the paint, because they give off a bluish light. Try warmer light bulbs and see if that doesn't tone down the blue at all. Second, if you pair blue accents with your wall it will make the walls look less blue. Try holding something blue next to your walls. It should make the walls look more like a true gray. Hope this helps!

    I painted my dining room a SW color called Gracious Greige. I don’t see that color mentioned often but liked it because it seemed to have more of a beige/gray mix than Agreeable Gray and was lighter. It’s pretty during the day but at night, seems a little washed out, so slightly disappointed there. I had planned to continue with this color in my foyer which gets a lot of natural light but the color almost looks like a blueish gray on one wall. I thought about using Agreeable Gray in foyer for slight contrast but thought I’d ask your advice on this. Thank you!

    Hi Laura! Gracious Greige does seem like a pretty color. It is a part of Sherwin William's HGTV Home line, which is sold by Lowes. Perhaps that is why it isn't as popular as some of the others. Unfortunately, I don't have a sample of Gracious Greige. Without being able to see the undertones, I couldn't even venture a guess as to whether Agreeable Gray will work with it. You could pick up a Samplize square of Agreeable Gray and see if the colors work in your home to test it out! Sorry I can't be more helpful - I'd hate to say, "yea sure!" and then you end up with clashing colors!

    Hi Lauren, Thanks for information on wall paints to go with dark trim. I have espresso color trim and doors all over the house with travertine tiles (yellow creamy colors with some grey/white tones). Brown beige glass tiles in kitchen and same around fireplace. We have dark cherry cabinets in the kitchen. We have an open layout- living room(south/east), dining room (East) and kitchen (North east). I am leaning towards contemporary look and looking for the right wall color. I love white but it looks very stark with brown. I am looking for airy light look. Even aesthetic white looks too bright in the room. I would appreciate your suggestions! Thanks, Ana

    Hi Ana! If you like Aesthetic White, Egret White would be a good choice for a slightly darker wall color that is along the same lines as it. I also love Edgecomb Gray for a light, airy greige. Do you like color at all? Or are you specifically looking for a white/gray shade?

    Thanks so much.... I am looking for a stunning color to go with my new grey furniture. I was thinking of Palladian blue but it has to be a softer muted color. The furniture 8s a lighter grey. My family room has wainscoting which is a creamy off white color.

    Any ideas?

    Hi Kathleen! Palladian Blue is stunning, but it is not exactly muted, I agree. Benjamin Moore Healing Aloe is a beautiful color. It is slightly more green than Palladian Blue, but is very muted. SW Glimmer is also very pretty, and has more blue than green. Also check out Bath Salts or Sweet Dreams. Both are similar to Palladian Blue but lighter. I love the color scheme you're choosing!
