Greige — the combination of beige and gray — is a warm shade that rarely goes out of style. This color category is classic and neutral, and it usually looks great in any room of a home. Many home sellers use it to “neutralize” their home because it pairs well with any decor or furniture, and this appeals to home buyers. It’s the perfect shade if you’re going for a cozy, traditional vibe.
When deciding on a warm gray (greige) paint color, it’s important to understand the different gray tones. Cool gray colors typically have a slightly blue undertone. Warm gray, on the other hand, has more of an earthy undertone from colors like beige, red, or brown. If you notice the gray paint colors you’re considering look slightly blue, or have blueish tints under certain lighting, you’re probably looking at a cool gray paint color rather than a warm gray paint color.
If you don’t want a shade that has subtle blue tones, greige and warm gray tones are right for you. Here’s what our professional painting experts recommend:
This PPG paint color is a soft, warm, stormy gray with an ebony undertone. It’s also one of PPG’s most popular paint colors. We recommend using it for a living room, den, or home office space. Pair it with bright white baseboards and crown molding for contrast and an added wow-factor.
If you want an earthy, greige color, Talavera is the paint for you. It’s a gray, rusty beige with a chocolate undertone. Because of its warmth and coziness, talavera looks best in living rooms and kitchens, and it pairs well with light woods or white trim.
Looking for a warm gray paint color for your home’s exterior? Look no further than PPG’s Intuitive. It’s a light, gray, taupe greige with a pink undertone and it’s neutral enough to pair well with a bold, bright front door and/or window shutters.
Even warm gray paint colors can make a bold statement when you choose the right one. Equilibrium is one of those jaw-dropping grays. It’s a midtone, warm, heliotrope gray with a raspberry undertone. Think of how elegant your hall bathroom will look with this shade and some bright white trim.
This warm, neutral gray has been on our lists in the past, and for good reason: it’s one of our all-time favorite paint colors. Stonehenge Greige is a saturated, gray, golden greige with an almond undertone. Can’t you picture this beauty on the walls of your home’s entryway? It’s sure to impress guests from the moment they walk through the door.
You can’t go wrong with a cozy, inviting, greige paint color. These are classics that not only bring beauty, but longevity. They’re neutral, so your options are endless when it comes to selecting lighting fixtures, furniture, wall decor, and accents that pair well. Choose one of our five favorite warm gray paint colors above for an incredible transformation.
