Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray vs Repose Gray
At a glance- Repose Gray vs Agreeable Gray
At a glance, both of these greige colors are very similar. However, when you get them next to each other you will notice that Agreeable Gray is warmer and more beige while Repose Gray is slightly greener with more gray to it.
Repose gray is also just a shade darker than Agreeable Gray. Repose Gray has a Light Reflectance Value of 58 and Agreeable Gray has a Light Reflectance Value of 60. Smaller numbers mean darker colors because they bounce/reflect less light around!
This shade is a very warm tan color. It really doesn’t have too much undertones in it. My whole home is painted agreeable gray and it seems to really pick up the tones of the colors used around it.
That being said, if I had to nail down Agreeable Gray’s undertones I would say that it has slight pink and yellow undertones.
Repose Gray has more green and blue undertones. You will especially see these tones in a North facing room. North facing rooms get cool light, which tends to make color skew blue-r.
Repose Gray also seems to have more gray than beige to it, compared to Agreeable Gray which to me is more beige than gray.
Agreeable Gray can pair really well with a lot of different color schemes. I love it with bold, saturated colors, but it also pairs nicely with neutral wood tones, whites, and deep neutral blacks and navys.
I would steer clear of pairing it with anything too yellow, as that really makes Agreeable Grey look very beige and yellow to me.
I’d also steer away from any colors that are the same darkness and go for something lighter or darker to create more interesting contrast.
I would definitely pair Agreeable Gray with a crisp white trim like SW Extra White.
Repose Grey also pairs nicely with a variety of color schemes. Blues work especially well and paired with white can create a nice cozy beachy look.
If you want to lean into the green look, pair it with a cool minty green shade.
Steer clear of reds and pinks as the undertones tend to clash.
For trim, you can pair a Repose Gray wall color with a warmer white like SW White Dove or Cloud White.
