Sherwin Williams Morning Fog

Love the paint color Morning Fog by Sherwin Williams? Here is everything that you need to know about it!

Looking for a beautiful gray color for your home? Let’s talk about Sherwin Williams’ Morning Fog color (SW6255).

Morning fog is a medium toned gray color with crisp, cool undertones. You can see as you go darker on the color strip, you get to a really nice charcoal shade. I think that Morning Fog is a great choice if you want a pure, cool gray paint color.

What I like about Morning Fog

I love the crisp cleanness of this paint color. I also love that it is not too light. I think that a lot of people feel like they need to pick a light gray color for bright walls or deep gray for a moody feeling.

This mid-toned shade is dark enough to add pigment and interest to your space – no one will confuse it for white!

But, it is still light and bright enough to make a room feel airy.

This is a great neutral paint color and one of the best Sherwin Williams gray colors!

    Oh my gosh! Unfortunately, this post was just in time to be too late for us. We are in the process of renovating choosing what was supposed to be a light gray for most of the walls in the main living area. Who knew that the same paint could look so different on different walls...icy blue in the bathroom, a perfect shade in the hallway, but a pastel green in the family room! It kind of gives a whole new meaning to "Fifty Shades of Gray"!
