Does any one have Sherwin Williams Keystone Grey as their exterior paint color? I can’t get a sample, as they’re sold out everywhere.
We currently have SW Virtual Taupe, but I wanted to go a bit more Grey/greige.
Here is Keystone gray exterior
From my monitor they are very similar and what do you mean by they are sold out of samples .
There’s a paint shortage, and so they don’t have the ~$5 sample containers of paint.
Cloak Gray SW 6278 + color complement for entrance

Darker compliment to SW Modern Gray?
SW Dovetail or SW Intellectual Gray?
So get a gallon and test it .
I was going to, but paint takes 2 weeks to order and we need to decide on paint this week. I didn’t realize how hard it was going to be to get paint right now!
Thank you! That is super helpful. We have similar color stone as well so it’s great to see how it looks with it. What color is the trim?
I actually just started painting our exterior this color. This is only the first coat. I’m hoping it was a better choice than virtual taupe (which is the color of my island).
We are using City Loft for trim.
It looks great, @Rachel Nye! Send another photo when it's done and let me know how you like the color.
Finally finished painting(thanks Fl rain…) and we love Keystone Grey! It goes great with our new black shingles.
@Rachel Nye It looks great!! Does Keystone grey lean more beige? Or how would you describe it?
And is City Loft a cool or warm white?
I think it leans slightly more taupe over grey??? It depends on the lighting.
City loft I thought would be super cool but also leans warm in certain lighting.
I think they both fall pretty close in the middle of the two categories and that’s why I like them so much.
And thank you! Will add I used the free color consult from SW to make the decision. I really liked the process.
Thank you! This is super helpful with finalizing my decision 😊 We start our exterior painting next week.
Rachel, it looks really nice! I just used the free color consultation from SW. We're still trying to decide but the color palette she sent me was helpful. It included some colors already on my list. Our painter can't start until next month.
Did you find your color choices look lighter on the exterior?
I think it certain light it does. Since I could only compare it to the chip I think it’s pretty close to that? Our house is North Facing in FL sun so I imagine it will always be a tad lighter.
Thanks. I've seen paint look quite a bit lighter on the exterior. Definitely lighter than the paint chips, but those are really not good to go by. It just seems the natural light outside lightens paint up, especially on large surfaces.
