Our Top 5 Shades of Greige

It doesn’t always have to be one or the other – that’s why we love the duo that’s greige. When you’re stuck between neutrals and can’t seem to decide, our top five shades of greige might be what you’re looking for.

Perfect Greige

This balanced hue is the perfect blend thanks to equal parts of gray and beige. Perfect Greige sets the backdrop for a transitional space where warm and cool tones can be mixed and matched with ease.

Anew Gray

Anew Gray has a touch of warm color that’s ever so subtle. Use this taupe-inspired hue in a space with other warm accent colors to pull everything together for a snug and welcoming look.


Choosing the right greige can have a big impact on how everything comes together in a space. A neutral greige like Alpaca creates a softer look that complements a variety of different accent colors whether they’re light, dark or somewhere in the middle.

Mega Greige

Warm up a room with Mega Greige. The warmer tones lean a little more yellow, which makes this hue perfect for creating an environment that’s extra cozy. Play it up with lighter colored textiles and decor to create inviting contrast.

Functional Gray

Looking to make a statement with greige? Functional Gray’s medium hue is perfect for creating a more saturated look that lets your walls stand out in any room. It’s especially great for focal points and accent walls.


  1. Have Versatile Gray picked out as whole house color to be painted next month. Is there a trendier color close to this. What color sofa and accent paint should I be looking at?
    Thank you

      Hi Sherry! Versatile Gray is a greige and greiges are very popular right now. For an accent color, you can stay in the same family. Try Spalding Gray SW 6074 or Turkish Coffee SW 6076. You could also pull a color from your furniture and/or accessories. A pretty green or blue would work as well. Consider a Virtual Color Consultation for further assistance.

  2. I’ve bought way too many samples!!! They all look blue on the wall. Tried Aldey Grey and it took out the blue but then looked purple on another wall. I just want a hint of Greige color on my walls closer to taupe, not blue. What do you suggest?

  3. Hi, what would a color two shades darker than Alpaca be called? I’d like to look it up.
    Thank you!
