Not Always Love at First Glance

Home Builder with West Magnolia Charm

We all know gray is a popular paint color. Even if it is not quite as trendy as a few years ago, it's still a popular choice. And quite frankly, gray is a great paint color to go with, especially if you are selling a home.

For the most part, people tend to gravitate towards the more popular or best-selling paint colors by a brand. There's nothing wrong with that because those colors are best-selling for a reason. But there are just far too many gray paint colors that are underrated and unloved.

This brings me to a gray paint color that I have admittedly ignored or forgotten about until recently while helping my mom choose a paint color for her living room/dining room.

She said she was tired of the old grays she used in the past. She said she wanted a light color but not too light and she did want beige or even a greige. Everything she was looking at was either too light or dark and then too beige and warm. 

Finally, I had to take over because at the rate she was going she would have never found a color she liked. I sifted through my colors and I found the one. I told her to trust me on this one and grabbed a sample of it 

We painted the color on the wall and she said "yup, that's the one". Little did she know this was one of the colors she instantly wrote off. 

The color I choose was Sherwin Williams Silverpointe. It's a beautiful subtle light-ish gray. It has a very light cool undertone but it is not icy. It truly is a clean, crisp, elegant gray.

I guess the point of my story is that sometimes the color you least expected is the color that is best fit for you. And that proves that sampling a paint color is 100% necessary in choosing a paint color.

Long story short, Silverpointe is a fantastic gray paint color option that I plan on recommending and suggestions more often.

Cate, luckily she let you take over, and totally understand, it is tough to choose a color.
