The Best Paint Colors for Gray Trim

A round-up of taupe and gray trim paint inspirations for a modern-meets-classic look and the best paint colors to pull it off.

Our sad, beige, spackle-marked guest bedroom has finally been getting a paint job as of late. After rolling some white paint on the walls, it’s already looking 1000% percent better.

But our next step in the paint plan is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while… gray trim!!!

If you haven’t noticed this trend floating around on the scene lately, allow me to introduce you to this gorgeousness. Even though it’s sort of the latest “what’s in” with interior design, it’s also a classic that can look stunning in all kinds of styles.

So I thought I’d share a few of my favorite gray / taupe trim inspiration photos along with some of the best paint colors to pull it off.

After filling up my guest bedroom Pinterest board with a bajillion gray trim pins, I dove deep into all of them for hours to research all of the best, most recommended gray and taupe paint colors to pull off the look.

(And I found a winner for our space that I can’t wait to show y’all later this week!)

  1. As someone who grew up as a military kid and then a military wife, and either living in military housing or rentals, I ABHOR white walls. Now granted, they were almost always paired with white trim. Maybe if there had been some lovely gray trim in that 46 years I wouldn’t feel so adamantly opposed to a white-walled room now.

    1. Hi, Cindy! I have the nursery currently that has the grey trim. We use the grey for the room side of the door while the hall side of the door is still wrought iron. We will use the same technique for the guest room.

  2. We are redoing our house right now, and I have used all 3 of the Sherwin Williams colors! I love the Repose Gray! It changes colors with the time of day. The Dorian Gray is an accent wall in our dining room, and the Agreeable Grey will be the master bed and bathroom color. I have never thought of painting the trim gray, but after this, I want that it in our next house!!! It is beautiful and thank you for the idea!

    1. We went a step down on the card from SW Repose Gray to Mindful Gray for the base color of our home and I second that I changes color during the day. I adore it, we go from a bright clean gray in the morning to a moody clay gray in the evenings. Our bedrooms are Dorian Gray and I love the cozy feeling it gives them. That paint chip card was the best!
