Colour Comparisons

As you can see below, it’s when we start comparing colours that you get a much better sense of a paint’s true colour.

Taupe Tone SW 7633 and Zircon SW 7667

Colour Comparisons with similar colours by Sherwin Williams

Taupe Tone is quite a bit darker than Anew Gray and it’s a Taupe, just as the name suggests.

Although don’t be fooled, because this isn’t always the case with paint colour names!

You see when Anew is Gray beside Zircon, a blue gray, now it does not appear to be as gray as you may have initially thought.

When I do Colour Consultations in a client’s home, I am always comparing colours so they too can easily see the differences between the paint colours.

When I hold my large paint boards up to a decorative element such as fabrics, wallpaper or subway tile and then swap out one board with another board, it becomes clear as to which colour will work best.

Best Whites To Pair With Anew Gray

Extra White SW 7006 by Sherwin Williams

The truest white out of the three, Extra White is a great white to use on ceilings and trim when considering painting a room with Anew Gray.

Greek Villa SW 7551 by Sherwin Williams

A slightly creamier white, Greek Villa is a wonderful trim colour to go with Anew Gray.

Shoji White SW 7042 by Sherwin Williams

A much richer white (and some might say not really a white at all) is Shoji White by Sherwin Williams and it makes a gorgeous paint combination with Anew Gray.

Looking at all three whites together you can more easily see how a different look and feel would be created for each one in a design when paired with Anew Gray.
