Sherwin Williams Repose Gray has an LRV of 58.
LRV, or Light Reflectance Value, measures the percentage of light a paint color reflects.
It’s a number to assign how light or dark a paint color looks on a scale of 0 (black) to 100 (white).
The higher the LRV number is, the lighter the color is.
The lower the LRV number is – the darker the color is.
So an LRV of 58 means that SW Repose Gray is a light color that reflects a decent amount light.
You need to test it in your room however, to see how it looks with your rooms lighting!
And remember! A light paint color will not necessarily lighten up a room or work in a dark room!
Repose Gray has slight purple undertones.
It’s a chameleon, complex color and can have a green undertone or a blue undertone depending on the lighting in the room.
It’s very important to test this paint color in your room!

FAQ about Repose Gray:
Does Repose Gray look green?

Oak cabinets have a brown, yellow and/or orange color which will clash with the purple/green/blue undertones in Repose Gray.
So I recommend that RG not be used as a kitchen wall color if you have honey oak cabinets.

Honey Oak cabinets can vary a great deal with how light/dark they are and how much brown, orange and yellow is in the stain color.
So it’s really important to take your oak cabinet color into consideration when picking wall paint color to coordinate.
Does Repose Gray go with marble?
