Looking for the perfect coordinating colors for Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray? Whether you want to create a neutral palette or add a pop of color, we've got some great ideas to get you started!

Are you a fan of color? Well, when we bought our new home, every single wall was painted Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray. It has become the new "builder beige" and is one of the most popular neutral gray paint colors out there. So, whether you inherited an Agreeable Gray home like we did or painted your home Agreeable Gray by choice, today we're rounding up some accent colors that pair beautifully with it! But before we dive in, be sure to read my whole guide to Agreeable Gray and see it in my home!

How to Select Your Accent Colors

When choosing accent colors for your home, there are a few things to keep in mind. First and foremost, consider whether you want a neutral color scheme or if you want to bring in pops of color. If you opt for neutrals, you can bring in other shades of gray, greige, beige, and white. On the other hand, if you want a bold pop of color, you need to decide what color family you want to explore - cool tones like blues or warm tones like golds, for example.

Take into account the non-changeable elements in your home, such as trim color, flooring, and kitchen cabinets. Although these can be changed, if you don't plan on doing so, select colors that pair well with those existing tones. Additionally, consider the lighting in your home. Darker colors might appear lighter and brighter in a room that receives a lot of natural light. Lighting really affects wall colors, so make sure to view your color choices in both daytime and nighttime conditions.

How to Use Accent Colors

Accent colors can be used to paint accent walls or painted furniture. They can also be incorporated into curtains, rugs, pillows, or as accents through lamps and home decor.

How to Shop for Accent Colors

When looking for the perfect accent pieces to match your home, try this hack! Get a paint sample or paint swatch of Agreeable Gray and keep it with you in your car or bag. This way, when you're out shopping, you can quickly pull out the sample and compare it to potential coordinating colors to ensure they match well.

Neutral Agreeable Gray Color Schemes

If you prefer a perfectly neutral color scheme, stick to other shades of gray, greige, beige, and white. One great option is Sherwin Williams Extra White, which pairs really nicely with Agreeable Gray. It makes the color look fresh and crisp. Avoid creamy whites as they tend to make Agreeable Gray appear more beige-like.

For those who want to work with brown paint colors, consider SW 7031 Mega Greige, SW 7032 Warm Stone, SW 7033 Brainstorm Bronze, or SW 7034 Status Bronze. These shades bring out the brown undertones in Agreeable Gray.

If you want to pair Agreeable Gray with another gray color, go for something a little darker. Aim for an accent color that contrasts with Agreeable Gray. Some recommendations include SW Gauntlet Gray, SW Light French Gray, and Benjamin Moore Boothbay Gray.

A note on Repose Gray - because this comes up all the time. Agreeable Gray is warmer, with more tan to it, than Repose Gray. Repose Gray is also slightly darker than Agreeable Gray. They look very similar until you place them next to each other. If you are in doubt, get samples of both! Avoid using Repose Gray and Agreeable Gray in the same room, as their similarity will make it seem like a mis-tint. Opt for colors with a stark contrast instead.

Accent Colors for Agreeable Gray

If you want to bring in some color, consider either a pastel or a dark shade. These colors will contrast nicely with Agreeable Gray while still adding a touch of vibrancy to your space.

For those who prefer a lighter color palette, pastel accent colors like SW Krypton, SW Silvermist, SW Slate Violet, SW Sea Salt, SW Breezy, SW Rainwashed, and SW Copen Blue are great options. These colors pair beautifully with Agreeable Gray and can help create a serene and calming atmosphere.

If you prefer a darker color, consider shades like BM Newburyport Blue, SW Storm Cloud, SW Tempe Star, SW Navy, SW Pewter Tankard, and SW Tricorn Black. These rich, dark hues offer a bold contrast to Agreeable Gray, adding depth and sophistication to your space.
