I love to show RELATEABLE & REAL homes, so ONLY use photos from my Online Colour Consulting clients. This means I don’t always have the quality pics I need (hence the ‘QUICK Review’), but DEFINITELY have some SUPER helpful info to help you on your way!

What type of paint colour is Argos? Is it warm or cool? 

Argos is a gray paint colour, but with its depth and strong blend of blue and green undertones, it’s not running in the same world as some of the more traditional cool gray paint colours.

If you have north-facing light, you will find Argos looking that bit MORE cool as its compounded by that cold northern light. However, Argos can be a GORGEOUS balance to the warmth of south-facing or afternoon western light!

What’s the LRV of Argos?

Argos has an LRV of 51. This puts it in the light-medium range, so it won’t wash-out as much as a lighter colour can in BRIGHT light, but isn’t so dark that it will weigh the average room down. (learn more HERE).

What are the undertones of Argos? Will it look like a true gray?

Argos definitely won’t look like a true gray as it has a decent green-blue undertone that tends to SLIGHTLY favour green over blue, but this can shift depending on its surroundings and exposure.

What’s the best way to sample Argos?

Like with every paint colour, I highly recommend using SAMPLIZE. Samplize is a peel & stick paint sample that you can easily move around your room for over HALF THE COST of traditional sample pots – and they deliver right to your front door!

Is Argos a good colour for the exterior of my home? 

Argos could definitely be a pretty colour for the exterior of your home as it suits quite a few of today’s most popular asphalt roofs. If you have warm-toned stone or brick, it will contrast it without looking TOO colourful.

Is Argos a popular paint colour right now?

Argos isn’t SUPER popular, only because of its depth, as most of my Online Paint Colour Consulting clients lean a bit more into the light range when it comes to the more popular gray paint colours.

What Benjamin Moore paint colours are the same as or similar to Argos?

You won’t find an exact match for ANY colour between brands – you WILL see shifts in undertones, temperature and depths. However, there are some with similar intentions, but different approaches…

And if you’re thinking of colour matching between brands (ie: getting BM to make an SW paint colour), you might want to read THIS first.
