Granite Peak by Sherwin Williams


Granite Peak has slate gray undertones. The gray undertones keep Granite Peak looking a bit muted versus looking like a very saturated blue.

Cool artificial lighting or north-facing windows will bring out more of its cool, gray undertones. Bright, natural light or south-facing windows will make this shade appear a bit more neutral.

It’s very important to swatch colors on your wall to make sure they look good – day and night – in your actual space before committing.
