From cool to warm, light to dark, Gray is a beautiful nuetral that can work well with other neutrals and calms bright colors. I have always loved using it and although I hear it is going to replace brown, I love using gray with brown

All neutrals, except the painting on the wall. There are different shades of gray, beige, and browns in the room this is a sophisticated palette, a palette that can only come together with the trained eyes of a professional designer.

It's a lovely example of the color gray and how it can work in any style. The color of the cabinets in the dining room, the gray of the wicker chair, the sourond on the bath tub, it makes for a very well thought out palette.

  1. I like gray but I wouldn't put it on the walls in my house, context is everything. If I had to choose I'd pick a green undertone!
