Why Is “Amazing Gray” so Amazing?

Amazing Gray (shade SW 7044) is one of the most popular shades at Sherwin Williams and has been making waves throughout central Ohio recently. Even our owner, Tom Hodgson has the shade inside his house and says, “my wife and I felt like it was the most perfect warm gray tone that complemented our home décor.”

I recently had the chance to tour and admire the M/I Homes model home located at Regency at Riviera in Dublin, Ohio. This model showcases a Slate Grey Hardiplank exterior with black and white trim and carries the grey indoors with Amazing Gray featured throughout. Aside from some of the bedrooms, Amazing Gray can be seen on most of the walls in the house, laying the perfect foundation for sleek furniture and daring decorations.

Amazing Gray is not a true gray, but it is the perfect neutral greige (gray+beige) hue. This paint seems to change based on the lighting, sometimes transforming from a cool gray to a warm taupe with greenish undertones.

Amazing Gray is amazing because while it may appear to change tones depending on the lighting, it is also easy to match with any other color combination. Amazing Gray is a true neutral - not too warm and not too cold - so it is no wonder that homeowners across the country are loving this shade from Sherwin Williams!
