I’ve started something new here at Remodelaholic: The Color Files. Each week, I look around the web for beautiful rooms and furnishings that have been given a fresh coat of paint in a similar color family. Did you check out all the beautiful, moody rooms dressed in black, last week? Well, this week we’re dialing things down a shade or two, and taking a look at this year’s hottest neutral: GRAY. It’s the color du jour for designers in home, fashion, and graphics right now. And why not? Gray can actually be pretty versatile when it comes to color palettes.
I would love it if you would use the Pin It button (above) to share this post with your friends on Pinterest. If you’d like to pin individual photos, please follow the links provided and pin directly from the source. That’s good Pinterest etiquette!
I’m listing some of the gray paint colors today that I think work really well in (and on, in some cases) homes. I’ve got them going from light to dark, so that you can see how close to white some grays are, and how much variation there really is when it comes to shading and warm vs. cool. Gray really does give you a lot of options, as you’ll see in the following rooms.
Martha Stewart Gray Pearl at Dreamy Whites
Benjamin Moore Horizon at For the Love of a House
Valspar Woodlawn Colonial Gray at To Newlywedism and Beyond
Glidden Oyster Bay at Centsational Girl
Benjamin Moore Cobblestone Cape May at Four Generations Under One Roof
Benjamin Moore Graystone at An Urban Cottage
Martha Stewart Bedford Gray at DecorPad
Benjamin Moore Cotswold at Dear Lillie
Martha Stewart Graceful Gray at Martha Stewart Living
Benjamin Moore Gunmetal Gray at Young House Love
Benjamin Moore Fairview Taupe at An Urban Cottage
So, I’m curious—have you tried any gray in your home, yet? Are you thinking about using it? What’s your favorite accent color to use with gray?
