Agreeable Gray by Sherwin-Williams: A complete review of one of the best light gray paint colors for your home. Plus, see how its undertones compare to similar popular light gray paint colors and greiges like Repose Gray, Accessible Beige, and Edgecomb Gray, and Revere Pewter!
SHERWIN-WILLIAMS AGREEABLE GRAY
As far as undertones, Agreeable Gray is a great warm light gray and could be considered one of the best greige paint colors. In certain light conditions, you can see a yellowish or slight green tint to it; but, I don’t think the undertones are substantial. When you see the color on the wall it truly reads as a warm greige or light gray. You can see in the graphic below how it compares to similar light gray paint colors from Sherwin-Williams and Benjamin Moore.
It has saved me hours of work and I wish I bought it sooner! Seriously! So many disagreements with my husband over painting would have been avoided!
Sherwin-Williams Agreeable Gray Undertones Compared
Here are several of my favorite light gray paint colors (see them all here and make sure to print out the checklist!) Plus, don’t forget to pick up any paint chips with this comprehensive list from both Sherwin-Williams and Benjamin Moore! No more forgetting a certain paint chip and having to go back!
AGREEABLE GRAY VS. ACCESSIBLE BEIGE
Two of Sherwin-Williams most popular warm gray paint colors. You can see side by side that Accessible Beige has more taupe in it but is overall very similar to Agreeable Gray. If you are looking for a more beige palette, then go with Accessible Beige; and if you want a greige, then go with Agreeable Gray.
AGREEABLE GRAY VS. EDGECOMB GRAY
One of Benjamin Moore’s most popular light gray colors up against Sherwin-Williams, Agreeable Gray. Read my complete review of Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray here. You can see from the paint chips above that Edgecomb Gray is significantly lighter than Agreeable Gray and has more green/ yellow undertones.
SW AGREEABLE-GRAY VS. REPOSE GRAY:
Two of Sherwin-Williams most popular gray paint colors are shown side by side in the above graphic. (See my complete review of Repose Gray here.) You can see from comparing the two, that Agreeable Gray is much warmer than Repose Gray and in comparison more of a greige than a true gray. Both are fantastic colors and if you were stuck deciding between the two, I would recommend doing SW Agreeable Gray in a northern-facing room and Repose Gray in a southern facing room (which receives more sunlight.)
SHERWIN-WILLIAMS AGREEABLE GRAY VS. REVERE PEWTER:
You can see above how similar Agreeable Gray is to Benjamin Moore’s Revere Pewter. The two are nearly indistinguishable–but there is a little more green in Revere Pewter.

These tools have literally saved me DAYS of painting and cut my time painting by 66%! I only wish I knew about them and made the under $10 purchase before!
- Abrasive Hand Pad
- Use this instead of sandpaper. Using sandpaper will rub off too much of the varnish and the stain on your oak wood trim will permeate your newly painted white paint. We use these abrasive pads everywhere instead of sandpaper.
- Paint Pad–– save yourself HOURS by buying this under $10 painting tool!
- Paint Trim Guard
- You are going to want this if you have wall-to-wall carpeting or hardwood floors that you want to protect. I use it along with Painter’s Tape to ensure that I don’t have drips on my floor.
