You read it right! Gray does not have to mean boring, drab or dreary! Gray is actually quite the glamorous neutral. It serves as a wonderful back drop for colors that pop like a sunny yellow or feminine lavender. I also loves shades of blue like aqua with gray. Picture it with Hermes orange. I’m using that color combination for a client in Dallas right now.
I featured a swanky sitting area of gray & yellow on GMT last Friday & created quite a buzz about the hot neutral. Watch the video here.
Make no mistake, gray is certainly hot on the scene right now, but it’s a timeless neutral that has been used in interior design for generations. It’s always been a favorite especially amongst those who love the look of Hollywood Glamor.
Benjamin Moore makes two of my favorite shades of gray to use. Wickham Gray will lightly wash your walls with a subtle yet fresh gray. Dior Gray, on the other hand, will give you instant drama with a rich blue undertone. It’s simply stunning. I actually walked into my friend Shelly’s house recently only to discover that her master bedroom is painted in this stylish gray. I’ve also specified it for an upcoming project for a client’s office.
So, my fellow design devotees, I encourage you to embrace this neutral color & get glamorous!
