What Type of Paint Color is Repose Gray?

Repose Gray is a decidedly and purposefully neutral color, leaning slightly toward the “warm” side of the color scale. This avoids some of the common trappings of the modern-looking grays, including the blue and darker gray undertones that can sometimes come out in these colors. Skewing to the warmer side also allows this neutral paint to be more adaptable to different rooms and color patterns without appearing too clinical or commercial in tone.

In brighter atmospheres, Repose Gray SW 7015 can even border on a beige-like appearance. This can be great for living spaces that could use the extra warmth, but those looking for a sleeker, more modern gray may want to utilize this in darker rooms with less natural light. These environments keep Repose Gray closer to a natural, classic gray. Warm, neutral colors like beige and gray are regularly listed among realtors and home renovation experts as the best colors for selling a home or adding value to your property. Repose Gray hits on both of these traits by utilizing brown undertones and also maintaining its traditional gray appearance in dimmer-lit environments.

Repose Gray Undertones

Undertones can really make or break your paint choice, particularly when it comes to rooms with ample natural light. Sherwin Williams Repose Gray gains most of its warmth from these undertones, which are primarily brown, gray, beige-gray (or greige), but also with a hint of purple. The purple undertone may cause some to worry, but it is quite understated in the case of Repose Gray SW 7015. The purple undertone in this paint is just sufficient enough to prevent the color from feeling flat, while also helping maintain its appearance in dimmer lit or enclosed spaces.

The other, lighter undertones really show themselves when exposed to excess natural light or in very well-lit rooms, particularly when paired with existing warm lighting. This can help make an area seem more inviting than other traditional grays may be able to do, while also being a bit more unique than traditional pastels or beiges that can seem outdated. Generally speaking, gray is seen as more modern which can add significant value to your home. The beiges and creams of recent memory are increasingly seen as outdated as the pastels of the 1980s or floral wallpaper of the 1960s.

Repose Gray has an LRV of 60, further certification of its warmer nature. This keeps rooms from looking too uninviting, all while still maintaining some modern style.

Best Places to Use Repose Gray in Your Home

One of the many benefits to utilizing a warmer, neutral color is its versatility. Repose Gray can be utilized most anywhere in your home, provided the right pairing of décor and fixtures.

Living spaces and sunrooms are likely to have more natural light and thus bring out the warmer undertones in Repose Gray SW 7015. This generally is a benefit, as those two rooms in particular are typically designed to be inviting, open spaces that benefit from warmth. Still, the neutral Repose Gray offers an upgrade to traditional “warm” or “light” colors by bringing a home into the 21st century.

Depending on the location of your kitchen and the light sources within it, Repose Gray could compliment a kitchen update nicely. If it’s a lesser-lit kitchen or one utilizing cool lighting, the more conventional “gray” with purple undertones can add a sharp contrast and contemporary feel to a modernized kitchen.

As neutral is, well, neutral, colors like Repose Gray can be utilized throughout the home without much detriment. While some may like to vary their color choices slightly throughout the home, SW 7015 offers a solid foundation on which to build your ideal style.

Similar Colors

We’ve gone over the benefits of Repose Gray, but maybe you’re not completely sold. Or your existing furniture and decorations just needs something slightly different. Either way, there are some good alternatives in the same family that may suit your needs.

The first would be Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray. This would ideal be for those seeking to modernize their home from the earlier mentioned beiges and creams, particularly if you’re hesitant about fulling committing to the gray-modern look. Agreeable Gray holds many of the same quantities as Repose, but with generally warmer undertones that slant more towards beige and taupe. This trade-off here is less traditional, sharp or crisp gray in exchange for all-purpose warmth. In homes with less natural light or cooler lighting, this alternative could seem more inviting.

On the opposite end of the spectrum lies Dorian Gray. Still similar to our original Repose in that it offers a decent amount of warmth through beige undertones, Dorian leans further into its gray base. Giving off a crisper, more conventional gray than Repose, this alternative could be for those looking for a truly modern, neutral look for their home. Dorian has an LRV of 39, indicating a soft color with enough heft to contrast nicely with white trimmings or modern furniture. For those who aren’t afraid to leap, rather than step, into the modern style, Dorian Gray could be a good option.

Still, Repose Gray offers a compromise between the two that allows a balance of contemporary style with conventional warmth, making it a solid choice in this category for nearly any purpose.

"Mike was great to work with. He explained all that needed to be done to install a quality roof that would last. Had other quotes but other contractors were not as informative and did not include everything that was needed. Mike’s crew was courteous, did an excellent job and completed the work in a timely fashion. If you are not familiar with working with insurance adjusters be sure Mike meets with them when you set up a meeting. This was helpful in my case and made the claims process run smoothly. I am very pleased 😀 with his service and recommend him to my neighbors of which two have used him across from my home."
