Best Selling Sherwin-Williams Paint Colors (Updated for 2024)

What are the most popular paint colors from Sherwin-Williams? From whites to blues, greens, and grays, here are the best-selling Sherwin-Williams paint colors–one of the most popular home decor paint brands!

The most common questions I get are always related to paint colors.

How do you choose a paint color?

What paint color is that?

What’s the best white paint color?

How do I choose the perfect paint color?

It is SO hard to choose a paint color.  I really do get that. It’s one of the reasons why I created my product: the Ultimate Guide to Popular Paint Colors!

Sometimes it’s still hard for me to choose just one (have you seen the amount of paint samples I’ve tried out in our closet??).

So, I thought I would try and make the paint-picking process a little easier for you by sharing the popular paint colors from one of the most popular paint brands out there – Sherwin-Williams.

The Most Popular Paint Colors from Sherwin-Williams

A montage showcasing Sherwin Williams' quintessential paint colors, accompanied by text overlays proclaiming "Top 50 Sherwin Williams Paint Colors."

I’m going to share their number 1 best-selling paint color, their top 5 best-selling whites, and then their top 50 most popular paint colors. This is all information from Sherwin-Williams.

Then, I’m going to share some research I did trying to see which paint colors were used the most from each individual color family.  So, for instance, the most used blue color.  The most used green color, etc.  

Now, this information is NOT from Sherwin-Williams because they said they don’t have information on their best-selling paints by color.

Sherwin-Williams #1 Best Selling Paint Color: Agreeable Gray SW 7029

Sherwin-Williams most popular paint color, Agreeable Gray, is a greyish beige color.

Agreeable Gray is Sherwin-Williams’ #1 Best Selling Paint Color (and it has been for years!) It’s a nice blend of gray and beige, aka greige. Greige is HUGE now with the farmhouse-style movement started by Joanna Gaines.

It’s often considered the perfect “greige” because it stays relatively true to color without stark undertones. That being said, it can pull a little purple in northern-facing light.

One of the reasons that Agreeable Gray is such a great color is because it doesn’t have crazy undertones to worry about. It really is the “purest” combination of gray and beige you can get!

We used Alabaster in Evie’s nursery in our old house.  It was the perfect neutral white for her room with just a hint of warmth from the creamy undertones.

Acacia Haze is a paint color that has smoky gray tones, which would look great in any space where you want a bit more of a subdued look.

Rosemary is a deep green that feels a bit muddy and has cool gray undertones.

I love this color, so much so that I painted it on all of the walls of our master closet before changing my mind. It wasn’t the right color for the closet (we eventually went with this color), but I did LOVE it once I got it on the wall.

Love how much coziness it adds to this sitting room from Vintage Revival when used as an accent wall.

Light French Gray is a great choice for a true gray because it doesn’t really have those sneaky undertones. It is a little darker than its name would suggest.

Passive SW 7064

Passive is another true gray color, it can even look like a white with gray undertones in bright, natural light. This means that can be used in small, dark rooms, too.

Love it used in this bathroom from Amelia Lawrence Style.

Mindful Gray SW 7016

A photo of Mindful Gray SW 7016 paint color.

Mindful Gray is the same color card as Repose Gray and Dorian Gray, but Mindful Gray is the shade in between the two. It’s a warm mid-tone greige. It’s cooler than a lot of other greiges out there but still has a warm feel to it.

On The Rocks is a bright gray with cool undertones that appear more cool in strong lighting. It is very versatile and would work in any room!

It’s a great option if you want gray but don’t want a warm gray.

It works perfectly as the wall color when used in this small powder room bathroom from Little House of Four.

So, that’s the end of the most popular colors by color family.

I decided not to do “most popular reds” because I feel like most people are looking for gray, green, blue, or white colors.

Now, here are the 50 most popular Sherwin-Williams paint colors!

Sherwin-Williams Top 50 Paint Colors (Updated for 2024)

Here are the 50 most popular colors from Sherwin-Williams! This paint color palette is largely neutral, with browns, creams, grays, beiges, and a few blacks. If you're looking for a stunning neutral color for a living room, bedroom, or anywhere else in your home, one of these 50 paint colors will be the perfect choice!

I originally created this list of the most popular Sherwin Williams paint colors in 2020, but when I went to update it for 2024 about half of the colors had changed. I’ve updated the list above with the most recent release from SW.

SW paint colors that were popular in 2020, but have been replaced by 2024:

  • Dorian Gray
  • Dovetail
  • Balanced Beige
  • Colonnade Gray
  • Softer Tan
  • Gauntlet Gray
  • Requisite Gray
  • Nomadic Desert
  • Perfect Greige
  • Peppercorn
  • Morning Fog
  • Latte
  • Popular Gray
  • Online
  • Mega Greige
  • Cityscape
  • Tony Taupe
  • Wood Skein
  • Urbane Bronze
  • Divine White
  • Functional Gray
  • Black Fox

New popular SW paint colors that were added to the Top 50 in 2024:

  • Greek Villa
  • Eider White
  • First Star
  • Ceiling Bright White

  • Origami White
  • Pearly White
  • Creamy
  • Incredible White
  • Egret White
  • Heron Plume
  • Westhighland White
  • Frosty White

After reviewing what changed between 2020 and 2024, it is interesting to note that most of the ones that were removed were grays and greige colors and most of the ones that were added were whites!

You can literally see the trend moving from gray, greige, and beige to brighter whites.

And, there you have it!  A lot of neutrals and way more beiges than I thought for sure.

  1. Hi. I’m looking for a white wall color for a bedroom. I’m leaving a blue painted ceiling with white clouds and small stars painted by my daughter. New carpet is going to be a light natural beige color. I like Snowbound and Pure White. I want a warm color that I can accent with blues. Please let me know your thoughts.
