Intellectual Gray by Sherwin Williams

Today's post title is a bit weird, but I will explain.
Ever since we moved in to our new place, I have been wanting to paint a few of our walls a neutral gray. I know gray is pretty popular now, but I used it in our last home in our master bedroom and LOVED it! Plus, a lot of what I wear is gray/black/white and green, so it makes sense to decorate using those colors in our home.

I am pretty sure I know what color I am painting our dining room and our family room and kitchen area...but I am waiting for Sherwin Williams to have another great sale since that is where I get my paint colors from anyways. They are so great and their colors last a long time. The one color I have fallen in love with is Intellectual Gray. I have only seen it used a few times on other blogs, but that is fine with me...I don't want to use what everyone else is using for their wall color- if that makes any sense. To be consistent, I am using mostly this color swatch for our home...with a few exceptions thrown in there like our laundry room and mudroom. More to come on those later!

Anyways, I was able to find a few inspirational pictures out there of this beautiful gray and I am pretty sure it will be going on the upper walls of our dining room. I can't wait!!

This photo I found on and Joanna Gaines used it. I love that woman! She has a great talent and more importantly a love for the Lord!

Intellectual Gray was used on the cabinets here and throughout this home.

  1. Hi! I'm ben searching trying to find out what color was used for the last two pictures (Joanna Gaines master bedroom). I see you list it as Intellectual Gray by SW, may I ask how you know this? Thanks!

    1. Hi Julia...I found it through a Google search...I think. It is a pretty color that can take on a green hue.


I always love to hear from my readers! Thanks for taking the time to post an encouraging & uplifting comment.
