It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Color Spotlight and there are so many color that I want to focus and highlight that I’m going to get back to doing the feature regularly. Today, I wanted to to a highlight one of the most versatile paint colors out there, Sherwin-Williams Mindful Gray.
Mindful Gray is a near perfect greige color with a beautiful mix of warm gray that is about is neutral as you can get. There are no strong undertones whatsoever like mauve, peach or green as you often see with similar colors.
In my book, there is hands down, no better cabinetry paint color than Mindful Gray because it’s a dark enough shade for contrast, the color is absolutely stunning and it will work beautifully with any color combination because of it’s transitional (warm/cool) base.

I use Mindful Gray on all my cabinetry throughout my home and I also recommend it more than any other cabinet color for my clients because it always looks amazing and it’s really the most dependable cabinetry color out there.
I used Mindful Gray on all the cabinetry and built-ins in my craft room (Repose Gray is on the wall).
I also used Mindful Gray on my built-in buffet in my dining room.
We used it also on our built-in bar, also in the dining room.
If Mindful Gray looks familiar to a lot of you, it’s because it’s one shade down on the same paint color card as Repose Gray. In fact, this whole color card is probably the best card when it comes to paint because all of the colors are near perfection and include rock star colors like; Sherwin-Williams Eider White, Repose Gray, Mindful Gray, Dorian Gray, Gauntlet Gray and Black Fox.
The Sherwin-Williams color strip number is 244.
Mindful Gray is also an all-around great color on walls, exterior homes and trim work. However, on walls, it is a rich darker color. Not super dark but if you want a rich greige, Mindful Gray is for sure a color to sample. Let me show you some examples.
In spaces with a lot of natural light, Mindful Gray does not appear as dark and it’s just a true beautiful warm gray:
In spaces with less natural light, you can see, Mindful Gray is a more den-like rich color. Of course, it’s still a perfect warm gray but just a little darker.
At evening or dusk, with no natural light, Mindful Gray will look like this.

If you’re looking for a wall color that is just a little lighter, Sherwin-Williams Repose Gray is the next color up on the color card and it’s one of the best colors out there and you can see my Color Spotlight here highlighting Repose Gray.
Here’s Repose Gray, so you can see the difference:
As with all paint colors, it’s always best to paint a poster board in the color and tape it to the wall (or cabinetry) to see how it looks and it it’s perfect for your space. You’ll love both Sherwin-Williams Mindful an Repose Grays!
