#1 Sherwin Williams Repose Gray SW 7015

Repose Gray is the perfect paint colour for almost any room whether you’re living in your home or preparing it for sale. Repose Gray is a soft, light gray that has soft and SUPER subtle undertones of brown with a wee dab of purple – not enough brown to qualify it as a greige, it’s just the undertone that adds a certain softness to this lovely colour – keeping it from falling flat.

Gauntlet Gray is an amazingly rich paint colour that is great as a feature wall colour or if you’re feeling ‘really’ brave – as an overall colour for the walls. Gauntlet Gray is primarily a charcoal gray with a subtle brownish purple undertone mixed in for softness which keeps this colour from feeling heavy and cold.
#3 Sherwin Williams Collonade Gray SW 7641

While I have it as #3, Collonade Gray is in fact my #1 fave Sherwin Williams gray paint colour. This gray is closely comparable to Benjamin Moore’s popular Revere Pewter, but it is more neutral with a veeeery slightly more taupe base, whereas Revere Pewter has been known to flash a touch green.
#4 Sherwin Williams Mindful Gray SW 7016
Mindful Gray is one of Sherwin Williams more ‘neutral’ grays – as many of them have subtle and not-so-subtle undertones. The undertone of Mindful Gray is a subtle brown with a touch of purple. This doesn’t mean that your walls will look even remotely purple, it’s more that the colour has a softer, more subtle approach than typical ‘gray’ paint colours which can often go blue or green.
#5 and #6 Sherwin Williams Useful Gray SW 7050 and Analytical Gray SW 7051

Useful Gray and Analytical Gray are beautiful tones of greige with very slight (very slight) green undertones. These 2 colours are more like grays that happen to have a bit of beige/green in them making them sit slightly to the cooler end of things, rather than warmer (beige) end of things. You will see how they flex just slightly (very slightly) towards the beige/green end which you can see when you compare it directly to Mindful Gray which sits considerably toward the other end of the spectrum.
#7 Sherwin Williams Dorian Gray SW 7017

Dorian Gray is a gorgeous mid-tone gray paint colour that has a slight brown undertone to it. It doesn’t go very far with it, but it does stop it from looking like a heavy, colder gray.
#8 and #9 Sherwin Williams Amazing Gray 7044 and Worldly Gray SW 7043

Oh how do I love these colours, let me count the ways….these colours are lovely tones of gray that ALMOST become greige as they do have that subtle brown/taupe undertone, however the overall look of these colours will be grays that are soft and slightly romantic feeling. Worldly Gray is the lighter version of Amazing Gray. See the subtle shift from taupe to green when you compare Worldly Gray to Useful Gray.
#10 Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray SW 7029

While Worldly Gray and Agreeable Gray are very similar to each other, they aren’t quite the same. Both are trying to sneak into the ‘greige’ world as they have far more beige/brown in them than the average gray, however Agreeable Gray just has a slight bit more purple (taupe/brown), Worldly has more of a gray/brown undertone.
