Sherwin Williams’ Jogging Path is a timeless, versatile, warm greige shade with strong khaki undertones. If beige makes you think early-2000s builder-grade homes, our designers’ smart, interesting uses of more complex beige and greige paint colors like Jogging Path will make you think again. This color is adaptable and pairs beautifully with a variety of other colors and textures. With its combination of beige and subtle gray tones, this paint’s color, style, and undertones can come across differently depending on the accents it’s paired with.

You might notice that the color looks a little bit different from house to house as you read this post, even though they are all rendered with the same paint color. That’s because our virtual exterior design services consider the direction your home faces, natural light, the surface you plan on painting, and many other factors. We also only use paint colors for our renderings that we have applied in real-life situations. We want our clients to not only love their chosen paint color, but love it on their home specifically.

Jogging Path: The Specs

Jogging Path is a warm, subdued greige hue. With an LRV of 49, it falls in the medium range, so it will reflect an average amount of light. (Learn more about LRV here — you’ll definitely want to understand it before painting your home’s exterior.)

Jogging Path is almost a completely even balance of red, green, and blue (known as ‘RGB’ in the world of paint color). Because the amount of red in the mix is just slightly higher than the others, the shade has a beige appearance.

Also, please note that before you commit to a paint color for your home’s exterior, it is extremely important to test until you get it right!

Recommended Applications for Jogging Path

Jogging Path is versatile and adaptable. It looks incredible on a variety of textures, including siding, stucco, and brick. We’ve used it on both traditional and modern homes and have found that it is becoming one of our favorite universal shades of greige to recommend.

Jogging Path Paint Color Pairings

Because Jogging Path has a medium LRV, it can be paired with a higher (aka lighter) LRV paint color, like the stucco on the house above, or a shade with a lower LRV (Benjamin Moore’s Black), as on the trim shown below.

We love Jogging Path when its paired with darker hues like Benjamin Moore’s Dragon’s Breath or Black. These deep colors create a striking contrast against the medium greige shade. We’ve even incorporated pops of color with Benjamin Moore’s Galapagos Turquoise for the front door of a home with a Jogging Path exterior. This paint color lends itself to being creative with accent colors.

White trim is another look we love with this warm greige shade, especially if a more subtle, traditional look is what you’re going for. There are so many great warm white paint colors to choose from. When paired with white accents, Jogging Path gives off a timeless, refreshing vibe.

Jogging Path works great with so many different design elements. Our designers have paired it with wood, red brick, and iron. It truly is one of the most versatile neutrals.

Pros and Cons of Sherwin Williams’ Jogging Path


  • Adaptable and versatile
  • Warm, subtle tone
  • Works great with both modern and traditional design styles


  • There are strong khaki and tan undertones with hints of gray, so this color can look different depending on the material of your home and the accents used
  • This is a very “medium” shade, so if you’re wanting to make a statement, this color might be too neutral for you
