Sherwin Williams Pediment: LRV, Undertones and a Little More

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 Sherwin Williams Pediment? Is it warm or cool? Is it greige or taupe?

Pediment is a TAUPE paint colour which makes it a WARM colour. While some people might call it a greige, I find that its undertones and soft warmth put it more in the taupe range.

If you have north-facing light, you may see Pediment lean that wink grayer, but it will STILL look warm. If you have south-facing or afternoon western light, it will look warmer and you may notice the undertones a bit more (which we’ll get into shortly).

What are the undertones of Pediment? Will it look purple or pink?

Pediment has reasonably strong undertones of purple and pink. If you don’t like purple or pink undertones, I would HIGHLY recommend looking at some more neutral options as Pediment isn’t very shy!

Is Pediment a popular paint colour right now?

While the greige range is SUPER popular, because Pediment has a stronger purple-pink undertone, making it more taupe, Pediment is not a popular colour.
