  1. Black and grey never go out of style, for any thing and garage doors really look attractive and smart in them.

  2. A combination of black and white may be one of the most sought-after colors. Monochrome, as this alloy is commonly called, will produce a combination of contrasts that seem oddly appropriate.

    Hi, I’m looking for the color code for Charcoal Gray to match my wood trims.
    Can you send the code to me? Thank you.

      Hi Alan, Amarr paint colors are part of the Sherwin Williams National Database. A Sherwin Williams representative will be able to mix “Amarr Charcoal Gray” for you in-store. Thanks!

        I have been to two Sherman Williams stores o try and get charcoal gray paint since Amarr will not send sample color chips ( call made on 4/13/19) and I could not obtain or even see samples in three different Lowes stores. One SW (Orange CA) store sold me sample they said was charcoal gray- seemed very light, so I went to another store (Irvine CA) to request the Amarr black- they told me they could not find the color code, and called the original SW store who told the clerk she had “made an educated guess” on the gray but had not informed me of this. Help!!No samples and no paint to even try to see what they true colors might be.
