GREIGE PAINT COLORS
When you are looking for a greige paint color (or any paint color for that matter) pay attention to the undertones. If you aren’t sure what I am talking about, it’s the tint of color that you can see a little bit in any neutral color. Some gray paint colors will have a slight bluish tint, some gray paint colors will have a warmer brownish tint, and some even have a greenish tint! For example, see how much blue Benjamin Moore’s Gray Owl has compared to Revere Pewter? BM Gray Owl has a blue undertone and BM Revere Pewter has a brown undertone.

Pro tip: Look at the most saturated (or darkest) paint chip on your paint If you aren’t sure what the undertones of any paint chip!
For North facing rooms that don’t get as much sun, I like to go lighter and warmer; whereas, with my South facing rooms, I go darker because they often get washed out by the sunlight and appear lighter.

PSSST! If you are looking at painting a room, don’t forget to pick up these things! 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.
BEST GREIGE PAINT COLORS
Stumped as to what greige paint color you should use in your house? Here are the best seven greige paint colors that are designer favorites and my foolproof picks!
1.) Benjamin Moore Balboa Mist
Benjamin Moore Balboa Mist is one of my favorite warm gray paint colors and one of the best greige paint colors you can find! We loved it so much we used it in both our living room and our dining room/ playroom! See my complete review of it here and how it compares with other warm gray paint colors: Benjamin Moore Balboa Mist
2.) Sherwin-Williams Repose Gray
Repose Gray has a similar color value (or saturation) as Balboa Mist, with a touch more blue. Nevertheless, it is a fantastic light gray pant color that is still warm, and hence, I consider it a greige. See my complete review of it here: Sherwin-Williams Repose Gray
3.) Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter:
A true greige if there ever was one, BM Revere Pewter is a popular greige paint for good reason…it’s warm and cozy feeling while still giving a “clean” aesthetic. See real rooms with Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter here and how it compares to other warm gray paint colors.
4.) Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray
Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray is another fantastic greige paint. It is slightly lighter than Revere Pewter and has a bit more of a greenish undertone than Revere Pewter. It is a lovely greige that looks fantastic in rooms. While we don’t have it in our house, I’ve rounded up several amazing rooms that show it off here: Edgecomb Gray
5.) Benjamin Moore Pale Oak
Pale Oak is another fantastic light gray paint, and an airy yet warm greige paint color. It is very similar to Balboa Mist and Classic Gray but is slightly warmer. It looks wonderful with wood trim if you have some in your house!
6.) Sherwin-Williams Agreeable Gray
Sherwin-Williams Agreeable Gray is one of their most popular paint colors–for a good reason! It is a warm gray without any bluish tones and works well with other paint colors. See my complete review of it here: Agreeable Gray
7.) Sherwin-Williams Accessible Beige
Sherwin-Williams Accessible Beige is one of their top greige paint colors, and you can see below how similar it is to Agreeable Gray (another top greige paint!) Accessible Beige has a touch more taupe in it–a tad more beige than gray (hence the name). But both have similar color values.
Honorary Mention: Benjamin Moore Classic Gray
Technically not a greige (I think of it as a true gray, but worth looking at!) Benjamin Moore Classic Gray is another one of my tried-and-true favorite light gray paint colors (and I even consider it one of the best light gray paint colors!) It is slightly lighter than Balboa Mist and still very airy feeling. We have used it in our master bedroom, our mudroom hallway, and our front foyer. If I was to choose one color to paint an entire house, I would go with Classic Gray. See my complete review of Benjamin Moore Classic Gray here.
