Jogging Path: undertones, LRV & more!
It can be hard to find the right shade of warm gray or greige. In between undertones, depths and subtle nuances, picking the best neutral for your space needs to be done carefully. This is why I’m glad you’re here, learning more about the best paint colors on the market, including this bad boy…
In order to show you RELATEABLE & REAL homes, I ONLY use photos from my Online Color Consulting clients. This means I don’t always have the quality photos I need or the RIGHT photos, but DEFINITELY have some SUPER helpful info to help you on your way!
What type of paint color is Jogging Path? Is it warm or cool?
With the extra bit of beige in it, Jogging Path steps out of the warm gray world and into the greige world.
Because Jogging Path is a WARM neutral, it’s a great option for cool north-facing rooms, without being so war that it overheats a south-facing space. But no matter WHAT exposure your room is, if it doesn’t have enough light, you might want to avoid Jogging Path altogether (suggestions coming shortly).
Let’s find out…
What’s the LRV of Jogging Path?
Jogging Path has an LRV of 47, so it’s tucked nicely in the light-medium range. HOWEVER, because of its slightly lower LRV (compared to lighter popular shades of greige), Jogging Path can look heavy in rooms without enough natural light. This depth is compounded by its earthy undertone, which can leave your walls looking a bit muddy or dingy looking.

What are the undertones of Jogging Path?
Jogging Path has a VERY legit green undertone. This undertone will never disappear, but also isn’t so overpowering that you have GREEN walls. But if you’re sensitive to green, you may want to a running path away from Jogging Path.
What’s the best way to sample any paint color?
Undoubtedly, you’ll be heading out in the near future to grab paint samples – stop right there! I want you to check out SAMPLIZE.

Is Jogging Path a good color for the exterior of my home?
Jogging Path isn’t a POPULAR exterior paint color, but this doesn’t mean it won’t work for you and your home. Its slightly lower LRV helps it stand up to bright light, but watch that green undertone and make sure it suits your roof, brick or any stonework.
Is Jogging Path a popular color for kitchen cabinets?
The only person who would like Jogging Path on their cabinets is Miss Piggy as it’s just too green for most homeowners. In my Online Consulting adventures, I find that people lean into the likes of Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter which is lighter and more subtle, while still having a green undertone (passive).
