The Color Gray Has Its Way!

So far this year I have been seeing a trend in the selection of the color Gray for interior painting. When putting this color up against a white ceiling and molding, it really shows its purest intention.

Kate Smith, from Sensational Color, sums it up pretty well about Gray:

"Gray is the color of intellect, knowledge, and wisdom. It is perceived as long-lasting, classic, and often as sleek or refined. It is a color that is dignified, conservative, and carries authority."

Gray is also very useful as a basecoat when using bold, vivid and transparent colors. Sherwin-Williams calls them P-shades and they range from P-1 through P-6. The higher the number is the darker the shade of gray it is. About 20% of their colors recommend this process.

But back to the actual beauty of the color by itself. Grays come in a wide array of choices, with the variety of blue, green, and brown undertones they contain. You are sure to find a shade of gray that will suit your decorative needs.
