Looking for the perfect greige paint color? Agreeable Gray might be it for you! See it here in real rooms and read all about the undertones and qualities of this super popular paint color.
Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray (SW7029) is one of the most popular paint colors for homes.
Gray colors in general are popular, and greige is a super popular shade of gray.
What is greige?
Quite simply, greige is a mixture of gray and beige. It’s a gray paint color that is very warm and tan in appearance. Greige is an extremely popular neutral interior paint color.
But, greige isn’t an actual color that you can request at the paint store. It’s like going to the paint desk and adding for blue. You have to be more specific than that!
Our home was built in 2016 and every single wall in every room was painted Agreeable Gray by the builder (Pulte). Sean jokes that Agreeable Gray is the builder’s beige of the 2010’s.
But, since we moved into a home full of it, I decided that this was a great opportunity to showcase SW Agreeable Gray in all of it’s glory.
We have great examples of how it looks with different colors as well as in a variety of lighting at different times of day!
For the record as you are looking at these photos, all of the white painted trim in our home is Sherwin Williams Extra White SW7006.

Agreeable Gray Qualities
Agreeable Gray is a super popular paint color because it goes with everything. It is a warm gray paint color that works well as a wall color, door color, paint for kitchen cabinets, or even paint for the exterior of a home.
Part of the reason that Agreeable Gray goes with so much is because of the balance of undertones and warmth and coolness of it. It can really mold and meld to match so many styles of home decor!
Agreeable Gray Undertones
One of the reasons that Agreeable Gray is so popular is that it doesn’t have much of an undertone. In my experience, it takes on the tones of the colors around it.
However, it is definitely a warm toned shade of gray. This means it reads more pink/yellow/tan and definitely not cool/icy/blue.
Therefore, it’s easiest to pair it with other warm tones for flooring, tile, and cabinets. I would just stay away from pairing it with too many other light grays. It’s best to pair with other colors that you want to pop!
Contrast colors for Agreeable Gray
For trim, you can’t beat Agreeable Gray paired with a crisp white (like SW Extra White!)
For decor and accessories, Agreeable Gray can take on almost any color scheme! If you like bold colors, pair it with blues, greens, pinks, or purples.
If you prefer more neutral color schemes, Agreeable Gray works with almost every shade of wood, tan, cream, or white.
I would stay away from pairing Agreeable Gray with shades of yellow or similar toned gray colors. If you want to pair it with gray, go with something darker for more contrast.
Coordinating colors for Agreeable Gray
Whether you want to paint an accent wall, a coordinating piece of furniture, or even just accessories, if you paint all of your walls Agreeable Gray, you will definitely want to use some coordinating colors for accents.
A great way to select a coordinating paint color is to select a color that is on the same paint strip. For a darker accent color, select a shade 2-4 shades darker than your base color.
For Agreeable Gray this would be SW 7031 Mega Greige, SW 7032 Warm Stone, SW 7033 Brainstorm Bronze, or SW 7034 Status Bronze. These are all clearly brown shades that will bring out the brown undertones in Agreeable Gray.
Sherwin Williams recommends coordinating colors for each of their paint colors. For Agreeable Gray, they suggest SW 7006 Extra White (our trim color!), SW 9004 Coral Rose (a surprisingly random bold pink), and SW 7028 Incredible White (a creamier white).
