Agreeable Gray paint color, by Sherwin Williams, is one of the most popular shades on the market today. It can pair with wood or white trim, goes well with all warm colors, and serves as a neutral backdrop for furnishings and accessories.
It is soothing and does not make much of a statement on its own, leaving the furniture and accessories to really stand out.
As with all colors, the lighting in your home will make a difference in how Agreeable Gray looks.
However, in a room with more yellow-toned lights, Agreeable Gray will take on more of a beige look. Agreeable Gray has been chosen by homeowners and designers as the go-to color for years.
In fact, it is so versatile and popular that many realtors recommend it as the best color to paint your walls if you are selling your home. Agreeable Gray is light, doesn’t have strong undertones, and plays well with any style or color that you put with it. Let’s explore some of the most popular greige colors on the market and compare them to Agreeable Gray. Both are included on almost all lists of the most popular gray paint choices (even though they are greiges). With an LRV of 55, Revere Pewter is also a slightly darker shade than Agreeable Gray. Revere Pewter was particularly popular several years ago when beiges were more in style.
Edgecomb Gray is another highly popular Benjamin Moore Color. Edgecomb Gray has an LRV of 63, meaning it is a color that will reflect a lot of light. Agreeable Gray’s LRV is 60, so it will present as just slightly darker on your walls. Accessible Beige, by Sherwin Williams, is another very popular paint color choice.
Pale Oak is another gorgeous, soft shade by Benjamin Moore. Pale Oak has slightly more beige in it than Agreeable Gray does, and can almost look a little creamy on walls.
Simply place them on your walls next to your trim, furnishings or fixed elements, and easily see whether the paint colors work in your space and with your lighting. But, if you enter your email, you’ll get $5 off your first order – which basically means that you will get free, overnight shipping!
Painting the rooms in your house is such a quick, easy way to make your whole home feel fresh, clean and welcoming, but choosing a color can be a headache.
I figured that the majority of people couldn’t be wrong about what colors looked best in a room.
Agreeable Gray is the perfect foundation for a whole house color scheme. My favorite coordinating colors for Agreeable Gray are Sea Salt, Steamed Milk, and Mega Greige.
It can look more green or blue depending on your lighting, and coordinates perfectly with the other colors listed. Sea Salt is a great color for a coastal paint scheme as well.

While Sea Salt is a neutral, Comfort Gray has always appeared more of a color to me when it is on a wall. It looks absolutely amazing in a bedroom with dark wood furniture and wide white trim. Steamed Milk is my favorite color for a room that does not have a lot of natural light coming in.
It stands out against white or wood trim, and it makes the whole room feel warm and inviting. I painted my super high staircase walls with Steamed Milk using an extension pole. Since I had never used one before, I chose this color because it was light enough that it wouldn’t be noticeable if I hit the ceiling with the paint. Be warned though, this color is much darker than the others discussed, and you may want to grab a sample of it before you paint your whole room in it. This is the color scheme that Sherwin Williams lists for Agreeable Gray. Finally, Incredible White is a good shade to put in nearby rooms, as it will blend nicely with Agreeable Gray.
If you want a color that will go with anything, is light but still noticeable, and is perfectly neutral, Agreeable Gray should definitely be on your short list!
