Paint Colors in Our Home

I’m often asked about the paint colors used in my home and wanted to compile a list so you (and I!) have them all in one place.  All of the paint is by Sherwin Williams- it’s what our builder used and I’ve been happy with it, so I stick with it.  Of course, it’s difficult to get a true reading of a paint color over the internet.  Sometimes I edit my photos to make them brighter which may distort the color, but I’ve tried to pick the photos that depict the way the color looks to my natural eye during the day.  Also, the color changes depending on the light in the room.  If you have any questions, leave me a comment and I’ll reply to it.  I hope this is helpful! 

All Downstairs Walls – Accessible Beige
I previously reported it was Agreeable Gray because that’s what I thought- but after buying Agreeable Grey for touch-ups around the house, I realized I was wrong. 🙁 I had go into the attic to see what old paint we had and finally figured out it is, in fact, Accessible Beige.  Agreeable Gray is cooler, but not too terribly different.  I repainted the entire entryway wall (the one with the stripes now) Agreeable Grey and it blends very seamlessly with the adjacent wall that is Accessible Beige.  I hope this makes sense! 

The best way I can describe Accessible Beige is as a creamy greige.

All of the walls downstairs are Accessible Beige- except the entryway stripes, so you can refer to other photos below to see how it looks in other rooms.  It’s also in the upstairs hallway.

Meet Megan

Hi! I’m Megan, mom to a thoughtful teenager and spunky young girl. We call Houston home and recently moved into our dream home. I traded my lawyer hat to become a full-time blogger in 2010. I love sharing my passion for affordable fashion, home decor, organization, & fitness to help inspire you to take care of you!


  1. I love that most of your downstairs is the same color, but you have it dressed up and it's not boring! I've been trying to think of a way to work with our open floor plan and paint colors, but I was afraid to use the same color over and over again. Now I see it could totally work!

  2. Love your house! especially the closet and the kitchen.
    I have a non-house related question for you – i'm thinking of getting the Michael Kors Salma as a work bag – I see that you've listed that as you favorite bag, how are you liking it as a work bag so far? how's the capacity and is it heavy? Thanks!

  3. i went to Sherwin Williams today looking for paint for our bathroom. I picked up the sample Accessible Beige (not knowing that was one of your colors) Is that the color in your kitchen also? It just looks lighter in your kitchen.

  4. Aren't those stripes great? Your home is so beautiful. Wow Megan, I am so envious. I think it's time for me to re-do my home especially my room. Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. Hi Megan, I just bought sample pints of accessible beige, divine white, agreeable gray and black fox. The in-store chip of divine white looked so beige and I'm surprised that you used flat paint on the trim and cabinets – how does it clean up? I'm ready to paint my LR, my kitchen/dining/hallway and maybe paint an accent wall with black fox behind my TV so it doesn't look as prominent. I paid for two gallons untinted paint in semi-gloss and two gallons of satin because I've had problems with cleaning marks off of walls in the past. Now I'm having second thoughts on which sheen to use. Your cabinets and trim look so much lighter/whiter than the store chip though I can definitely see using it on ceilings. Time will tell, when I try out the pint samples. I love that white is back in style, and gray, but I want a lighter gray. My bedroom has been a shade of gray for many years. The current paint is named True Taupe but it matches my silvery gray carpeting pretty closely. I love your house! I've wanted a white built-ins wall in my narrow LR for a few years, it makes sense in the room and will avoid dead corners. I'm inching closer to being happy with my LR, it's been a long time coming. Thanks for all of your paint information and sharing your home. ~ Mary

    1. The clean-up is okay, I went with our builder's suggestion on those finishes. I'm curious if you've found your perfect paint yet- can be such a hard decision.

    1. The ceiling is exactly Honest Blue and the color match is as close as I can get you to the walls, but Sherwin Williams will know how to color match other brands colors- that doesn't make the matched color anything that is specifically SW if that makes sense. Great question though!

  6. Hi, for the stripes in Urbane Bronze and the main wall color (Accessible Beige), what finish of paint did you go with? Is it Satin or Flat? Did you use the SW Emerald Line? Thanks!

  7. Your home is lovely. I love the colors! I found your site while searching agreeable gray and accessible beige. Which of the 2 colors do you prefer?…i currently have accessible beige and love it but ill be moving to a new home with dark kitchen cabinets and was contemplating agreeable gray. Im worried about the accessible beige showing beige undertones next to dark cabinets and the agreeable gray possible showing blue undertones. I figured you look at thosr colors daily and would know…

    1. Thank you Chelsea! The Agreeable Gray is more grey and the Accessible Beige is more beige so it just depends on what you're going for. I don't think the Agreeable Gray looks blue, but try both on a poster board and move them around your kitchen and at different times of the day to see how the color changes. Hope this helps!

  8. Thank you so much for this blog! It is so informative & entertaining.

    I am renovating my home & I love your kitchen. Do you know what brand cabinets you have? Also, how are your cabinets holding up?


    1. Thank you so much! Our cabinets were built when we built our home, so they aren't by a particular brand. They've held up well!

  9. Hi Megan,

    I love your home! What do you think about Repose Gray by SW or Behr's Billowing Clouds for a living room that is north-facing?

    Thank you!

    1. Thank you! I'm not familiar with those colors, but a good tip is to paint the swatches on a poster board and move it around the room to see how it looks at different times of day and in different light.

    2. It's hard to say, I would still recommend painting the swatch on a poster board and moving it around the room to see how it looks in your home.

  10. Is the color in your master "Anew gray" the shade darker than agreeable gray? It looks so pretty on the walls and a bit lighter than it looks on the swatch to me and just wanted to make sure since the name is slightly different. I'm contemplating it also for my master bed and bath! Thanks!

  11. Your home is beautiful! I was dead-set on Agreeable Gray, but once it was up …it really flashed blue…so we started over and repainted with accessible beige. Love the color! Agreeable Gray is quite lovely but with my spiced maple cabinets and gold countertops. (Home built 9 yrs ago)..the accessible beige seemed to be a better match. Definitely looks more beige on the swatch, but difinetly more gray on the wall…it’s beautiful. We have decided to use this color as a whole house color…very light and airy! Glad we made the switch!

    Happy painting!

    **Tried inserting pic of both but blog would only allow for comments.

  12. Hi Megan,

    Love the colors and decor. Planning to repaint our doors in darker color and noticed your darker door handles. Do you know the brand and if they are truly blacker or rubbed bronze? Most I have seen in stores are not truly black, or if they are, look too contemporary to me.


    1. Hi Birgit, I’m not sure the brand of our door handles, but ours are almost black with a bit of bronzed distressing. Hope that helps!
