What type of paint color is Comfort Gray – is it a COLOR or a GRAY?

While its name might SUGGEST gray, Comfort Gray is actually a green paint color (blend) with the color showing up to the party JUST enough to be obvious without overstaying its welcome. We’ll get into its particular blend shortly.

With its slightly higher chroma (color), Comfort Gray can be a gorgeous choice for north-facing rooms, whereas gray paint colors with green-blue undertones can often look icy cold. It’s also a beautiful choice for south-facing rooms or spaces with western exposure, helping to balance out the warmth of the sunshine!

What’s the LRV of Comfort Gray

Comfort Gray has an LRV of 54, making it a light-medium depth paint color, but on the HIGHER side of this range for sure.

This slightly lower LRV along with its extra bit of color makes Comfort Gray a beautiful choice for bright and light rooms as well as darker rooms (as long as you’re not expecting an abundance of color).

What are the undertones of Comfort Gray? Will it look overly green or blue?

Just like the lighter version, Sherwin Williams Sea Salt, Comfort Gray is a NINJA. While it should cater to a green undertone, it easily leans into blue. However, unlike Sea Salt, it rarely becomes DOMINATED by the blue and usually shows up as a beautiful blend.

What’s the best way to sample any paint color?

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…
