Gray may be in the cool tones, but right now it’s HOT! HOT! HOT! And some of the most pleasing shades of gray have a warm hue to them. Just take this dining room as an example, paired with a beautiful cream it makes for a very warm and inviting room.
Another trend is pairing gray with a sunny yellow… a play on silver and gold. Think of a sleek sofa upholstered in a gray suiting material with some punchy yellow bold floral pillows and putting a subtle gray on the walls. YUM-MY!
So the next time you think about paint your walls… I urge you to walk past the beiges and tans and go to the gray paint chips in the paint store. Consider a gray sofa… In my opinion gray is the hot, new neutral.
