AGREEABLE GRAY NOTES:
Agreeable Gray belongs to the yellow hue family over near the yellow-red hue family.
You can see where it plots out on The Color Strategist Color Wheel above.
In a balanced quality of light, Agreeable Gray looks like a mid-tone, warm, near neutral gray.
However, in certain qualities of light it can shift and look purplish.
Near neutrals from Agreeable Gray’s hue family neighborhood are notorious for shifting purple in unbalanced qualities of light. See infographic below.
Which is why you will find a range of opinions about what it looks like – or as some people call it undertones. The problem, as you may have realized by now, is that the theory of undertones is just someone’s opinion about what they think a color looks like – to them – in whatever lighting and context they happen to be in.
Some people say Agreeable Gray has a “green undertone” while others insist it’s “just a warm neutral gray” with no hint of any other color. And then we have the instances where it actually shows up and flashes purple quite noticeably in their space.
If it does shift and shows up in your space in a way you don’t want it to, then you know you need to try near neutral grays from a different hue family neighborhood. If it’s flashing purple or even blue, I’d start with a color from a hue family that is outside that big purple parenthesis you see up there in the infographic.
How do you find those colors? The Color DNA Table. You can easily sort thousands of paint colors by hue angle, hue family, value, chroma and even LRV. It’s an amazing tool that puts you in control of color.
Color strategy doesn’t get any easier than this! It’s always best to test. I recommend Samplize Peel & Stick samples because they’re mad with real paint.
