Going Gray: Distinguished and Grand!

 

We’ve taken a look at black walls, we’ve taken a look at navy walls and today we are going to take a look at just how beautiful gray walls can be.  Many people think of dreary-town when they think gray, but it actually has quite the opposite affect on a space when done correctly and paired with classic pieces.  It has a certain serene, classic essence about it that you might not expect.  And just like a fine gentleman….going gray can give your space a very distinguished, polished air and appearance!

Very unexpected to use gray in this cozy little “sunroom” type of space, but it works.  An interesting, soft back drop for the yellow and teal.  Notice they carried it right up on the ceiling.
