Whether warm or cool, charcoal or pewter, gray is one of the hottest go-to colors for designers. Contrasted with white, it is sophisticated and sleek.
The latest decorating trend is painting the spaces in your home in varying shades of gray. It’s a fabulous elegant neutral backdrop to set off any color, adding depth to subtle hues and making bold tones pop. 1
As grey doesn’t have a ‘personality’ of its own, paired with any other colour, it allows that colour to be visible whilst grey takes a back seat. 2
Refer to nature when choosing colors to mix with grey. Tans, taupes and subtle neutrals blend well with grey. The combinations are reminiscent of mushrooms.
