Gray Paint Experts Needed

bichonlover3July 20, 2014

My DH and I are going to paint our son's and new daughter-in-laws first house. We need to use SW paints as my son is a Navy pilot instructor based at Vance Air Force Base in Enid, OK. and this is the brand of paint that is available. The new couple like accent colors of dark teal and burnt orange and they have a sectional that is a taupy-beige solid fabric which my son refuses to give up. lol. I was looking at SW Functional Gray or Mega Greige with white trim to make the gray pop or will these grays be too dark for their small mid-century home? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I just used SW Amazing Gray in my dining room and really loved it.

I just tried samples of Mega Greige 7031, Incredible White 7028 and warm Stone 7032. Does Mega Greige have a green cast or is it just me?

Perhaps this article will help you.

Remember, whether or not the paint has the cast of green, it may be coming from your room. I painted the wall color in my DR also on the ceiling in my library, but due to the light in each room the colors look very different.

Here is a link that might be useful: Choosing gray
