Sherwin-Williams, Behr, Benjamin Moore, Farrow & Ball, and the crazy-for-color folks at Pantone, for starters. Benjamin Moore’s color of the year, October Mist, is a gentle sage to “anchor and uplift.”

LRV is a value (0-100) commonly used by design professionals to represent what percentage of the light a surface reflects. Knowing the LRV of a paint color can help you decide if it is right for your room, lighting situation and mood.
Check out these gray green paint colors that we spotted at our local home shows and in use by some fellow DIY bloggers. Note: On some of the photos from our local home shows, we were unable to find the exact paint color so we used a paint color matching app to find a close match 🤞. It’s the no-mess, no-stress way to quickly and easily test a paint color.
