I love to show RELATEABLE & REAL homes, so ONLY use photos from my Online Color 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 color is Sherwin Williams Cityscape? Is it warm or cool?

Cityscape is a COOL gray paint color, but at this depth, they’re also referred to as charcoals. A color like Cityscape is often used on bathroom vanities, kitchen islands, exteriors and on feature walls, but can ALSO be used in an entire room if you’re wanting a moody look!

However, you’ll want to pay attention to the exposure and amount of light in your room if you’re thinking of using Cityscape, as not every room (ie: a dark north-facing room) will be able to handle a color with this low of an LRV. If that sounds like a different language to you – keep on reading!

What’s the LRV of Cityscape?

Cityscape has an LRV of almost 22. This puts it on the medium depths, but it’s on the HEAVIER end of that for sure (learn more HERE).

Not sure what LRV is? It could save your paint lovin’ life – read all about it HERE.

What are the undertones of Cityscape? Will it look green or blue?

Cityscape has a decent green undertone, meaning it won’t look AS neutral as some other popular gray paint colors. Green can be a warm green (green-yellow) or a cool green (green-blue) – Cityscape is a COOL green, meaning it leans more into blue.
