A greige wall color in a dining room combined with black accent dinings chairs and fresh green plants

A greige wall color is a gray-beige, or better said a warm, gray paint color with warm undertones. Greige paint colors come in a variety of shades and the amount of natural light the room gets will highly influence the red or yellow undertones in the paint.

Greige, or warm gray walls in the living and dining room

The living and dining room in this turn-of-the-century Swedish home has a beautiful greige wall color on the walls, which brings out the white trim on the ceiling, windows, and door frames in such a nice way. The white-soaped hardwood flooring has a very light color which complements nicely with the greige paint on the walls.

A white linen sofa (it’s an Ikea sofa with a Bemz custom cover in white linen*) in the living room lightens up the color palette and the warm tones in the linen throw pillows bring out the warm undertones in the greige wall color. The vintage cabinet by the wall is an ideal spot to store the firewood next to the fireplace and the black accents in the masks and the floor vases add a bit of character.

The dining table has these beautiful black accent chairs as well, which look very fresh in combination with the white linen tablecloth* and the green plants.

A white kitchen with wood countertops

The walls of the kitchen have been painted off-white, which matches nicely with the simple white kitchen cabinets and the warm wood tones on the countertops. The round kitchen dining table has the same chairs as in the main dining room, yet in wood tones that match the kitchen countertop.

The same greige paint color on the bedroom walls

The same greige wall color as in the living room has been used in the bedroom as well, where the gray-beige walls have been paired up with white fabric lampshades on the bedside tables and a paper shade pendant in the middle of the room.

The mixture of gray and beige textiles on the bed brings out the warm undertones in the paint color and just like in the living room, you can find some black accents in the form of the bedside tables to add some contrast.

The best greige paint colors to try to achieve this look

If you are looking to achieve this look on your walls, you could give a warm and mute gray like Charleston Gray from Farrow & Ball* a try, which has brown undertones that create a warm atmosphere. Note though that you should always try out a sample of the color in the room you are planning to paint so you can get an idea of the effect of the material and the natural light in the space on the undertones of the paint.
