shades of gray

A sweet friend of mine asked me recently to name a few of my favorite gray paint colors.  As I’m sure you all know, gray is HOT right now and has been popping up all over the design world for some time!

Almost every room needs a little weight to anchor the space and create contrast.

The “it” color changes every few years.  The color du jour was black a decade or so ago, (and black will always be “in!”)

Miles Redd

then it was chocolate brown…

Christina Rottman
David DeMattei & Patrick Wade

now it’s the very chic greige!

It’s everywhere!

And it seems to bring out the best in almost any color it’s placed next to.

I asked the girls at the office their “go to” gray paint color, and here they are!

Kendall: Benjamin Moore Kendall Charcoal

and Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter

Scarlett: Sherwin Williams Amazing Gray

Kelly: Benjamin Moore Texas Leather

and my favorite (this week, at least) is Sherwin Williams Gauntlet Gray

Be inspired!

And maybe this is one of those rare times that it’s ok to follow the trend;)
