Shades of gray can stand alone–or almost alone, with the help of black and white–to create a welcoming, cool, cozy interior that is simultaneously striking. Another way to make gray work if you’re afraid it may be too dull on its own is to add a burst of color in a bold or bright shade.
When used alone in a grayscale color scheme, the effect is carefree sophistication that flows together effortlessly.
When used with other colors, the effect draws the eye to focal points in the room and adds energy and warmth. The magic of gray lies in how well it works in any type of room. It’s perfect as a backdrop for almost any other color.
