Gray Green Paint Colors To Try

Gray paint colors with green undertones are making waves in the interior design space. These shades add a little something extra to the classic gray neutral paint colors we all know and love. If you’re looking for grayish-green paint options, this guide is for you!

If you take a look around this site, richly colored greens and grays are clearly my thing.

So, you can imagine how thrilled I was to learn that my two favorite colors are now all the rage for interior design color schemes. Gray green paint colors are totally IN!

This green gray paint color guide contains affiliate links, but nothing that I wouldn’t recommend wholeheartedly. Read my full disclosure here.

My love for grayish paint colors began when we moved into our fixer-upper. I was determined to get rid of all of the horrible tan and baby blue colors that were everywhere.

Basically, Behr Chic Gray saved the day for that challenge.

Gray plays a big role in our whole house color scheme. In most of the rooms, we’ve used some kind of gray paint color. You can check out all of our paint color overviews as well as our whole house color scheme here.

Gray vs. Grey

First of all, why is grey spelled two ways? Every time I go to write a blog post with gray, I never know whether to spell it gray or grey. So, I officially Googled it and figure out that gray is the American English spelling and grey is the British English spelling. That makes sense, right?

So for the purposes of this round-up with gray-green paint colors (since our audience is primarily American), I’m going to spell it gray-green paint colors instead of grey-green color ideas, but for all intents and purposes, I mean the same thing as grey green paint colors when I write gray-green colors, ok?

These gray green paint colors are perfect for your kitchen cabinets, living room, bedroom or anywhere in your home! C

Gray Green Paint Colors

I love this new trend of grayish-green paint. It’s like our ole trusty gray neutral got an upgrade. It’s not too green, too gray, or too blue. It’s just right. 

These paint color tones give off cozy, warm-hug kind of vibes that will mesh with just about any style of home decor. Largely depending on the other colors in the room and natural lighting, this color combo creates a cooler, relaxed shade.

The undertones of these colors will affect how the paint color will look once dried and on the walls. It could be gray with green undertones, gray with blue undertones, or even appear as more of a blue-green paint color.

It all depends on the natural and artificial lighting, other colors, decor, and even the type of stain you are using on the floors. All of this greatly influences the final result, so keep this in mind as you consider different paint colors.

I never thought greenish gray paint would be the next hot thing as a neutral paint color. But, hey! It works well in just about any home and decor style, and I’m all here for that!

Whether you are into the modern boho, traditional, farmhouse, or purely modern, definitely check out these hot gray-green paint colors for your next project.

These green gray shades from BEHR Paint add a little something extra to the classic gray neutral paint colors we all know and love. If you’re looking for grayish-green paint options, this guide is for you!

It is one of the bolder options on our list and very similar to Behr’s In The Moment, but with a slightly more blue-green tint. With a light reflectance value (LRV) of 30, this will be a deeper kind of neutral. 

Depending on the vibes you are going for, you can make this as moody or as fun as you want. Pair this with pastel pink, coral, or bright yellow for a lot of contrast and a lot of personality!

Alternatively, this shade would evoke soothing coastal vibes when paired with soft, muted linen fabric and gently-toned complementary colors.
