Sherwin Williams Gray.  Is it the new white?

Sherwin Williams Gray.  Could I dare say, maybe even more elegant than white?  It’s the new must-have in your home.  Your furniture, window treatments or home design styles can stand confidently in front of the gray while your painted gray walls become the sophisticated backdrop.

Pairing Up Your Paint Colors

Painting your walls gray goes with most other paint colors, but the classic look in home design, or even fashion design, is the pairing of gray with pink, purples, turquoise, or white.  This can mean painting accent walls these other paint colors, or just adding these colors to your accessories within the room.  Just as you would pair a good wine with a dinner selection, you must pair the perfect gray with the main color you are trying to showcase in your home.

But maybe you aren’t into the classic feel in your home or office.  There are many hues of gray with different “temperatures” that reflect your vibe such as modern, traditional or eclectic.  The beautiful thing is that you can play around with these colors on online sites such Sherwin Williams Color Visualizer.  You can drop in the color you are trying to showcase, let’s say a shade of pink on the couch, flowers, artwork, and then drop in different grays on the wall to see which one works the best.  Keep switching the gray wall color to the best one to highlight the focal color you are looking to pop in that room.

Highlighted here are three Sherwin Williams paint selections:

  • Mink Sherwin Williams #6004 from the cool neutral family
  • Silverpointe Sherwin Williams #7653 from the cooler whites family, and
  • Cloak Gray Sherwin Williams #6278 from the violet family.

So get bold this year, try a gray paint color as your new white in your home or office.  You won’t regret it. Make this year your year for sophistication with gray paint.
