The Sherwin Williams Jogging Path Color Strip
Sherwin Williams doesn’t really give us a proper light-to-dark color strip for Jogging Path:
You can see that the shade Grecian Ivory is significantly lighter and Mountain Road is significantly darker, but there isn’t a lot of LRV range otherwise.
The other shades on this strip are:
- Grecian Ivory

Jogging Path and Benjamin Moore Dove Wing
Dove Wing is a really nice neutral off-white that you can use wherever Jogging Path is a bit too dark, or where you don’t want to go bright white.
An off-white like this will help Jogging Path feel lighter.

Jogging Path and Benjamin Moore Soot
I just cannot help myself with this color lately! It is the perfect deep gray blue for any scenario, so of course it looks great with Jogging Path!
Jogging Path and Sherwin Williams Cascades
This palette needed some color! Why not complement the green undertones in Jogging Path, with the jewel green of Sherwin Williams Cascades?
(This will actually make Jogging Path look warmer and more beige.)
Jogging Path and Tricorn Black
I really like the idea of using Jogging Path with a solid black and soft whites.
Of course the most solid of all blacks is Sherwin Williams Tricorn Black.
Jogging Path and Sherwin Williams Snowbound
I played around with a few different whites for this palette, but I feel like SW Snowbound looks the best with Jogging Path.
It’s a simple true white with just enough warmth and softness.
Complementary Color for Jogging Path
The “official” complementary color for Jogging Path (the color directly across the wheel) is a dusty blue.
I feel like you can get away with the deep gray blue of Soot, but if you want to be proper, try something like Sherwin Williams Aleutian:
What Trim Colors Go With Sherwin Williams Jogging Path?
Here is a selection of popular trim whites from Sherwin Williams, and how they would look with Jogging Path:
White Paint that Goes with Jogging Path
- Sherwin Williams Snowbound – I mentioned in the color palette that I personally like Snowbound the best with Jogging Path. I think it doesn’t influence the color too much, which I like.
- Sherwin Williams Alabaster – Alabaster is a slightly darker and creamier white, so it will allow Jogging Path to look a little bit lighter, but also more gray.
Don’t Forget Your Supplies!
This little brush might look funny, but it’s my absolute ride or die!
Rollers like these hold the most paint and make the job faster. Get a metal roller cage for easy on and off.
DryDex is the fastest (and funnest!) way to make chips and dents disappear. (Make sure you get a small spackling tool that actually fits in the container, and a sanding sponge.)
This tool will save your back and limit time on a ladder.
- Sherwin Williams Greek Villa – Greek Villa is a creamy white that still reads like a soft true white. The creamy beige undertone will look great with Jogging Path.
- Sherwin Williams Pure White – Pure White is a soft, slightly gray, white that reads like a bright true white. It would be a classic white and greige combo with Jogging Path.
Sherwin Williams Jogging Path for Your Home’s Interior
Now for the fun part: Let’s see Jogging Path in real homes!
Sherwin Williams Jogging Path in the Living Room
Here in Rach’s living room (@rachcaron), Jogging Path looks its most gray.
You can see that there is still a good amount of beige in the color, even when it looks coolest.
Sherwin Williams Jogging Path in the Dining Room
We lucked out today with a bunch of Jogging Path photos from a dining room, thanks to Kela! (@athomewithkela)
These pictures also show a cooler side of Jogging Path, but I believe they are filtered to be a little cooler and brighter. (Just judging off the rest of the decor.)
This one looks a little bit warmer and true to tone.
I like how Kela accented the decor with pops of black.
Sherwin Williams Jogging Path in a Bedroom
Kela also used Jogging Path in her bedroom:
The color coordinates surprisingly well with the deeper taupe that Kela chose for the dresser.
What a restful space!
Sherwin Williams Jogging Path in the Bathroom
I have two surprisingly similar bathrooms where Jogging Path has been used for both vertical and horizontal shiplap.
Hannah from @southgadesign used Jogging Path on this wide horizontal shiplap in her bathroom:
Doesn’t that just look smooth and sexy?
Here is another one:
The color looks totally creamy and neutral here. Note how light it looks when it is the main wall color, compared to the next bathroom where it is used alongside white.
In this bathroom by Morgan (@mydivinehome), she used Jogging Path on vertical shiplap as well as the trim.
Not only does the color look darker when used with white, in this space it is also showing it’s slight green undertone.
Morgan didn’t say what the white was here, but it looks very much like Sherwin Williams Snowbound.
It’s interesting how much darker and more contrasting the trim and shiplap look in here compared to Hannah’s bathroom.
Here’s a shot where you don’t see the white, and the color looks much more similar to the last bath:
Eventually Morgan added wallpaper, which is a gorgeous additional upgrade in this space!
Sherwin Williams Jogging Path on Kitchen Cabinets
If there’s something you should know about me, it’s that I looove a beige cabinet. Maybe not forever, only time will tell, but I am feeling this vibe!
In this kitchen by Tara (@tara.g.norman), all of the cabinets are painted in Jogging Path. The island looks lighter but it is just the lighting.
If you visit Tara’s Instagram, you can see the kitchen in video form as well!
The first photo looked light and beige. This next one is the darker and more gray side to Jogging Path:
Tara describes these cabinets as a mushroom color, and it’s totally accurate.
If you like the feel of these cabinets, you might like my post The 3 Faces of Smokey Taupe on Kitchen Cabinets (Plus Alternatives!)
Sherwin Williams Jogging Path For Your Exterior
These neutral greigey shades are often surprisingly hard to find on exteriors, but today we have two!
This first shot by Heiler Painting (@Heilerpainting) shows us the most buttery beige that Jogging Path will ever look:
I think it’s down to the sunshine mostly, because the other pictures don’t look this yellow. If this is the look you want, you might prefer Manchester Tan (although it is lighter).
Here is Jogging Path as it went on over a muddy brown:
The finished product!
I think this color works surprisingly well with the brick sides of this home.
The black shutters complete the look.
This next Jogging Path exterior is all siding:
The trim is a slightly darker shade. It looks pretty similar to Sherwin Williams Acier.
You can see that on exteriors, Jogging Path is a nice neutral base for your trim, shutters, and gardening.
Is it going to stop traffic? No, but it’s a classic choice.
Jogging Path Compared to Other Greige Paint Colors
Let’s take a look at how Jogging Path compares to the ultra popular greige samples you are likely also considering:
Sherwin Williams Jogging Path vs Accessible Beige
Accessible Beige is much warmer and lighter than Jogging Path. It almost looks pink in comparison to the green undertone. (It’s not though.)

Sherwin Williams Jogging Path vs Agreeable Gray
Agreeable Gray and Accessible Beige are the tippity top Sherwin Williams neutral paint colors.
Here you can see that Agreeable Gray is also lighter than Jogging Path, but it has a more similar tone.
Agreeable Gray is technically a little bit warmer than Jogging Path, but it is also a bit more gray, so it cancels out.

Sherwin Williams Jogging Path vs Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter
Revere Pewter is the OG classic greige by Benjamin Moore. Again you can see that the tone is very similar:
The big difference is that occasionally people find Revere Pewter to have a purple undertone, and Jogging Path would never lean that way.
You can see that Jogging Path is darker than Revere Pewter. On the color wheel, Jogging Path is also a little warmer, but it doesn’t really come across.

Anew Gray is more taupe than Jogging Path, and can have a slightly purple undertone.

Jogging Path Pros & Cons
That’s all I had planned for today and Jogging Path. I think we are going to see this color become a favorite Sherwin Williams neutral over the next few years.
Let’s run down some pros and cons:
- Perfectly neutral – neither too warm or cool
- Perfectly greige – neither too gray or too beige
- A really nice neutral for cabinets where beige is still a less expected choice
- Works with almost any other color or coordinating white
- Slightly darker than most whole home neutrals
- Slight green undertone on occasion
