I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED GRAY! …I have loved it and have used many versions and shades of it throughout my home. What I love about GRAY is that is is a color which complements everything, but does not expect to be complemented in return…If Gray were a friend she would be a very good listener …it supports…and lets other colors take center stage…and for this reason….
WINS THE OSCAR FOR BEST SUPPORTING COLOR!!!
LETS TAKE A LOOK AT SOME SCENES OF GRAY AT WORK…
DOING WHAT IT DOES BEST…
NOW, HERE IS A BIT OF AN OPTICAL ILLUSION…LOOK AT THE PHOTO ABOVE..THE LIGHTER OF THE TWO FLOOR COLORS IS COVENTRY GRAY…
A COLOR WHICH ON THE PAINT SWATCH IS DARKER THAN STONINGTON GRAY…BUT WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE WALL (STONINGTON GRAY) IT APPEARS DARKER! THIS IS WAY YOU MUST ALWAYS PUT THE COLORS UP AND SEE HOW THEY APPEAR IN YOUR LIGHT IN YOUR ROOM!
THE DARKER OF THE TWO FLOOR COLORS IS SHAKER GRAY…..!!!
I Have heard rumblings that Gray is on the way out. So be it…whatever…I think we are so completely over exposed to trends and the ins a nd outs of designs tat we are simply tiring of them faster…I do what I do in my home because I love how it looks..not because it is IN or OUT…that being said. …you won’t find me digging my old avocado oven out of the junk yard! I LOVE they way the grays and the pale grieves in my home allow me to go crazy with color in my art and furnishings ….I do think that gray on gray on gray is a tad sad and such a waste with all that color out there but if that is your thing…Go for it!!!
DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE GO-TO GRAY??
