Decorate Using Gray

By
Home Stager with Redesign Etc. Home Staging Incorporated in TX

Gray is a very neutral color, one that is cooler,but easy and relaxing on the eyes.  It has that calming effect and is being used alot in home decorating in all types of roomsGray can also have a cooling effect when placed next to other more vibrant colors. It can have a stabilizing effect, making vibrant colors stand out while muting them a bit.  Instead of using white and black, try using lighter shades of gray.  You will also find grays in taupe.  Gray is a good neutral background color.  The color gray is timeless, practical, and solid.

Is gray the new "Black or White"?

Gray is such a classic choice when put together well ... I love mixing it with black and white accents for a clean look.

Hello Cindy!  Grey has been hot over the past year and continues to gain momentum.  Great examples you posted and most people are surprised when they see how fabulous this 'neutral' can look! Great post!
