Recently my daughter and her husband painted the exterior of their home in Shoji White and the shutters in Iron Ore, both by Sherwin Williams. She was looking for the best option to match those colors and teh cocoa warm tones of her brick. Warm Stone was the perfect neutral paint color that matched both.
I think she made a great choice!
With an LRV of 20 and a color balance of R 136 G 123 B 108, it is the least reflective and warmest of the greige's we've featured today.

Monday 17th of April 2023
Are you talking about Oxford White, an HGTV Sherwin Williams color at Lowes? If so, the RGB is 236, 238, 235. Because these numbers are so close, I would think it is fairly neutral, meaning it is a clean, clear color leaning slightly on the cool side.
