How to select your accent colors

When choosing accent colors for your home, there are a few things to keep in mind.

First of all, and probably the biggest with this color, is if you want a neutral color scheme or if you want to bring in pops of color.

Obviously, with neutrals you will bring in other shades of gray, beige, and white.

If you want more of a bold pop of color, you then need to decide what color family you want – cool tones like blues, or warm tones like golds for example.

Consider non-changeable things in your home like trim color, flooring and kitchen cabinets. Sure, they could be changed, but if you don’t plan to change them, select colors that pair well with those tones.

Also keep in mind the lighting in your home. If your room gets a lot of natural light, darker colors might appear to be lighter and brighter.

Lighting really effects wall colors and you should look at all colors in daytime and night time to be sure you still like them.

How to use accent colors

Accent colors can be used to paint accent walls or painted furniture.

They can also be used for curtains, rugs, pillows, or accents like lamps and home decor.

How to shop for accent colors

When looking for the perfect accent pieces to match your home, try this hack!

Get a paint sample or paint swatch of Agreeable Gray and stick it in your car or bag.

When you are shopping, you can quickly pull out the sample and compare it to make sure you like how the colors coordinate!

Online SW 7072

Online by Sherwin Williams

What color is Sherwin Williams online?

Online is a cool gray Sherwin Williams paint color. It is a mid toned gray that reads as a lighter – but not washed out – gray in bright homes.

The Light Reflective Value or LRV of Online is 45.30%. This means that it bounces back forty five percent of light shone at it.

The smaller the LRV, the darker the color. So, Online is actually closer to 1 (pure black) than 100 (pure white), meaning it’s not THAT light of a gray color.

The Online HEX# is B0B4B4.

The Online RGB is 176 180 180.

Sherwin Williams Online undertones

Online has crisp, cool undertones. There are notes of blue and a cool green to it in certain light. It definitely can go a bit icy, especially in bright natural light!

What trim paint color should I use with SW Online?

I would (and did!) pair Online with a crisp, cool white. A warm white would look yellowed next to the blue undertones.

My pick for a trim color to pair with Online is SW Extra White. SW Pure White is another great option.
