Are you on the hunt for the ideal greige paint color? Look no further than Agreeable Gray! Discover why this popular paint color is loved by homeowners and designers alike. In this article, we'll explore the undertones and qualities of Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray (SW7029) and showcase real-life examples in various rooms.

What is Greige?

Greige is simply a blend of gray and beige. It's a warm and tan-toned gray paint color that has become incredibly popular as a versatile neutral for interior spaces. However, it's important to note that you can't just walk into a paint store and ask for greige. You need to be more specific!

Our home, built in 2016 by Pulte, was painted entirely in Agreeable Gray. It has been jokingly referred to as the "builder's beige" of the 2010s by my husband, Sean. But since we have a home filled with it, I saw it as a wonderful opportunity to showcase the beauty of SW Agreeable Gray.
