After doing a blog post last week called “Shades of Beige Can Be All The Rage” (if you missed it – check it out by clicking here) I was recently asked the question, “Isn’t gray the new beige?” And, the answer is, well, in a word – yes. While, beige is timeless, beautiful and works with all sorts of colors, styles and textures, gray has replaced it – or at the very least given it some serious competition as I guess you could say – it’s hipper, cooler, “more chic” cousin.
Gray works well in a multitude of styles and with a multitude of colors.
See what I mean?
So many colors, styles and textures……..all take on a bit cooler vibe when painted, dyed or paired with gray.
See how this space pops with personality when yellow is paired with gray….
A mix of color that creates an unexpected joyful vibe.
And, notice this modern space takes on a rather regal, elegant air with purple accents….
Of course it looks great with red!
Totally hip with hot pink…..
Luxurious and serene with teal blue….
Wild and exotic with orange….
It even works shades of green….
Here it creates a stunning, sophisticated master bedroom….
And, even looks sweet and spectacular in a nursery.
I mean….who knew?
So, yes, gray is very versatile and works with a multitude of textures, styles, and colors just like our good, old friend – the tried and true, timeless beige. But, somehow gray just has that “now”, that “it” factor making it the hipper, cooler “new age beige”.
