Grey House Paint Colours

Paint colour scheme used by talented blogger Katrina, from Katrina Lee Chambers blog. Katrina has used Colourbond Shale Grey in a Taubmans paint combined with a colour bond Surf Mist roof. Her white trim is just plain white paint with no tint. If you need your paint to have a name use Dulux Vivid White as that is really white with no tint.

A Whole House Paint Color Plan


The BEST whole-house paint scheme that looks great in every lighting. Daylight will bring out the colors - beautiful blue-green in rainwashed, periwinkle in solitude, pretty purple in swanky gray...and then interior lighting at nighttime will bring out the grey undertones to create beautiful, calming colors. This is the perfect paint palette. Sherwin Williams Paint Colors


I think it's safe to call this color from Restoration Hardware a classic. Silver Sage is not too gray nor too green and goes with about everything. In our old house, I received so many compliments on this color, paired there with a lot of cream.


Paint is relatively cheap, easy to apply, and makes a big impact. The hardest thing about paint? Picking colors! It's hard to even know where to begin, but I know I want a subdued, neutral/natural feel, with colors that flow from room to room. Since I don't have the house yet, I've been experimenting digitally with paint colors. #domesticheart #sherwinwilliams
