One of the BEST Greige Paint Colours…
Out of the THOUSANDS of online colour consultations I’ve done, there are ALWAYS a handful of faves – there’d be two handfuls, but a girl has to hold a glass of wine ya know.
And this dining room is DEFINITELY one of those faves BECAUSE it has dark wood trim – AHHH, THE DREADED DARK WOOD TRIM (ye shall dread no more)! With Pinterest and Houzz jam-packed with white painted wood, I was excited to work with this room, to help it look modern and beautiful – rather than dated and drab…consider it DONE!
Before, this room had the right BONES, but the warm paint colour wasn’t doing any justice to the dark wood or the room itself – it looked a bit suffocating.
After, with the PERFECT new paint colour and flooring, this room looks COMPLETELY different…
That church pew SLAYS me. I had a church pew in our last home and loved it, however, Tim was NOT such a big fan and since I ALWAYS listen to Tim (said nobody ever) so I sold it.
The styling was okay the first time around, but the SECOND time around she TOTALLY nailed it!

And who is ‘she’? She is Rachel from Gingham and Grace, who’s just a lovely soul with a great sense of style! If you love this dining room, you’ll LOOOOVE her blog (and she’s a cutie-patootie).
In Rachel’s E-Design consultation, I suggested several colours for her to choose from (along with some explanations and chit-chat) and was pumped when she decided on Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray. Agreeable is a light warm gray-greige. With an LRV of 60, Agreeable Gray was the perfect choice for this space AND the perfect colour.
Let’s take a quick break to talk about paint samples…
Undoubtedly, you’ll be heading out in the near future to grab paint samples – stop right there! I want you to check out SAMPLIZE. Samplize offers peel and stick paint samples that are more AFFORDABLE, EASIER and more ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY than traditional paint pots. Here are just a FEW reasons why I recommend Samplize to my clients…
- Samples arrive ON YOUR DOORSTEP in 1-3 business days, depending on location
- At $6.99, they’re more affordable than the samples pots/rollers/foam boards that are needing for traditional paint sampling
- If you keep the samples on their white paper, you can move them around the room
