We have another guest post today. This one comes from Design Shuffle a great place to get inspiration! Enjoy!
These days gray is the new neutral. Gray paint is available in a rainbow of tones and hues from the palest whisper of gray to warm grays to cool blue grays and deep, rich charcoals. Gray works well with most other colors, you just have to choose the right gray. It’s important to pay attention to the undertones when choosing a gray paint. When looking for decorating ideas, explore the world of grays and add this new neutral to your walls. You might be surprised how much you’ll like gray as a neutral.
The palest gray can easily replace white to give a slight hue to any living room wall. A very subtle shade like in this living room adds dimension without adding color.
This light gray has a yellow undertone that warms up the room. Gray doesn’t have to be a cool color. There are both warm and cool grays.
A deeper gray adds more color to the walls while pale gray upholstered furniture creates a soothing, monochromatic palette.
Many grays take on different tones depending on the time of day. This paint, Lamp Room Gray, from Farrow & Ball, has cool undertones.

The gray grass cloth in Kate Spade’s bedroom has a lot of blue tones to it. The blue gray looks great paired with dashes of yellow in this and many other bedroom designs.

Another warm gray. This gray has a lot of brown in it. It works well especially when paired with crisp whites.

The eclectic furnishings and accessories stand out against the dramatic charcoal walls. The lighter gray fireplace contrasts the darker walls but is less shocking than a white fireplace.

A charcoal gray adds drama to a wall and makes a great backdrop neutral for furnishings. The warm wood of the dresser is highlighted against the dark walls. Lots of white keeps the room feeling lively.
