You can see in the image above how well Online matches the white and grey marble of our fireplace.

Our front room is accented with lots of shades of blue and teal, which play really nicely with the cool tones of the Online paint color.

You can also see how the shade of the color appears to vary from the darker corner to the bright areas around the window. This gives you a good feeling of how the color might vary in different areas of your home.

Grey is a go-to neutral paint color, but many people do not realize how many shades of grey there really are.

It is very important to pay attention to undertones when choosing a gray paint color.

I really love Online because it is a nice cool grey with almost blue undertones. I really hate the name though! Online is not very sexy.

I guess that they chose Online because it is almost the color of a 1990’s computer!

Sherwin Williams Online pairs really well with pure whites as well as wood tones. Accent with bold colors like teals or pinks for pops of color.

You can also see in the above picture how well Online compliments dark wood colors. These floors are dark walnut color and look very nice with Online.

Here’s all the best coordinating colors for Online!

Online is a really nice medium tone gray color – it’s not too light and not too dark. It can read much lighter in a room with more natural light, and richer in darker areas.

Online can really work with a variety of color pallets, but I would stick to cool color tones. Warm colors are less likely to coordinate with this gray shade.

I LOVE this color grey and how it pairs with Baltic Birch. I'm going to use it in my bathroom. I love how it pops with white, and with natural wood and with the faux wood tile I'm using. Now to figure out what colors to use for the bathroom vanity I'm building. Can't decide whether to go with black and natural, or white!

Your transformation is amazing. Thanks for posting all the photos. Following your process and reading about your thinking about the changes is very helpful.

Hi Mary Jo! We have Online above our chair rail and white below it. You could do white on top of online. Or, what about one of the other shades of gray on the same color strip as online? Gray Screen is one shade lighter. Software is a shade darker!
