How do I decide between these two colors?
These are both great neutral paint colors. However, Edgecomb Gray is going to lean a bit closer to beige while Agreeable Gray feels a bit more like a warm gray.
If your room has low light or northern exposure, stick to Edgecomb Gray. The cool light will tone down the yellow undertones to make it feel more neutral.
Southern facing rooms with bright, golden light might prefer Agreeable Gray, as that southern light will make edgecomb gray really pull a bit yellow. Plus, super bright light could wash Edgecomb gray out more, making it look closer to cream or off white.
