Why Repose Gray is a Chameleon and What You Should Know

Repose Gray by Sherwin Williams is all over Pinterest and it seems like it's popularity will never wane, even in 2019, I still get clients asking about Repose Gray. The gray trend is still here but the shift to white, greige, blacks and fresh colors are the go-to colors today.

What a lot of people don't realize is that Repose Gray has two undertones that react when it comes to lighting, so don't be surprised if your wall color changes throughout the day. 

The two undertones in Repose Gray are blue and violet, each undertone will either make your wall color look lighter or darker. In this video, I will talk about what you should know about Repose Gray before rushing to a decision that it's the color you want for your home.



Yes, Repose Gray is definitely a chameleon, in a good way, works well with a lot of colors and most importantly you have the knowledge to make a better decision of this paint color will work in your home. 

There is something else I want you to know, it doesn't matter what color of gray you may like, it will never make your home beautiful by itself because you need lot's of other colors to make your home shine.

What do I mean by color?  Gray in general needs color to bring it to life, to make your home look and feel vibrant. It starts with your accents, artwork, rugs, flowers, vases, and furniture to name a few. I will throw you a tip that I use when I'm interior decorating a client's home, find a common accent color, let's say it's a teal blue pillowcase then repeat the color in the room and if you can find books with complimentary colors use them to add texture to your room!
