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.

Colour Comparison with similar colours by Sherwin Williams

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.
