Sherwin Williams Online: a complete color review

Looking for the perfect cool gray paint color? Let’s talk about Sherwin Williams Online gray – undertones, coordinating colors, and the best trim colors!

Gray paint colors are a super popular option for a neutral wall color. Grays come in tons of shades and tones – it can be so hard to find the right shade for your home.

Today we are going to chat about a cool gray color that I am particularly fond of. I actually painted the entire downstairs of our last home Sherwin Williams Online! All of the pictures that you will see below are from that home.

This is a cool gray paint color. It was perfect for pairing with all of the blues we used to decorate that home in a coastal style!

Color Family

Online is in the cool gray color family.

Light Reflectance Value

45 – very mid-toned, a light gray that still has some great color depth to it. Won’t feel too washed out.

Light Reflective Value is the measurement of how much light a color bounces around. This is on a scale of 0 to 100 with 0 being pure black and 100 being pure white.

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!

Best uses

This color works really well as a whole house paint color. It also is beautiful on an exterior, especially if you have cool toned stone outside as well.

I love Online for a coastal, beachy, or even lake cottage style home. It works really well in any space with cool toned gray and blue accent colors!
