However you spell it, I am a ginormous fan of the color Grey.
Be it a warm or cool version, it is a must have in my design bag o' tricks.
I even painted grey horizontal stripes in my dining room and my kitchen is also a greyish/blue hue.
It not only finds it's way into everything I design, it finds it's way into almost everything in my life. The only place I have yet to embrace it, is in my food options. Other than one of my favorite mustards, Grey Poupon, which of course we all know is not grey in the least--the actual grey hue is not a "got to" food color choice.
Here's the thing about the color, it makes everything else it comes in contact with in your room better.
You want to go daring with color, pattern and texture? Add some grey and watch it all work as seamlessly, as a perfectly engineered sports car let loose on the autobahn.
You've decided to put Lady GaGa and her meat dress to shame with your over the top wardrobe choices? Slap on some charcoal grey Louboutins, a wide, shiny, grey leather belt with a pewter buckle into the mix, and Anna Wintour will call your fashion venture: "New Sophisticate"
If I could give you one color palette as a go-to, no matter what is going on in your room, it would be grey. It will make everything better. Trust me.
Go Forth and Grey/Gray.
