Repose Gray Colour Review
Undertone: green/slight violet undertone
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.
Agreeable Gray SW 7029 and Passive SW 7064
This comparison above gives you a much better idea of where Repose Gray fits in.
Passive looks cooler and has a more noticeable violet undertone when compared to Repose Gray.
You can definitely see a bit more of the green undertone in Repose Gray compared to Agreeable Gray which also has a green undertone but is not nearly as gray.
A much lighter gray, Agreeable Gray looks gorgeous in this living room.
When I do Colour Consultations in a client’s home, I always compare colours so they can easily see the differences between the paint colours.
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. This helps to clearly show which colour will work best.
Best Whites To Pair With Repose Gray
