€œLighting conditions will have a profound impact on gray tones, making them appear even cooler than intended, especially in northern exposures,â€ she says.
Far from being dull and dreary, gray is a useful backdrop for showing off a homeownerâ€™s personality in a given room. For Mathew, gray functions like mutable canvas. It dutifully serves as the backdrop for any design, heightening the intended mood.
â€œThink about color in the context of the way you live your life. There are many creative and acceptable color combinations, but itâ€™s more about fitting the look around the way you live, rather than the other way around.â€
Grays paired with warm colors like red and orange suggest high energy so the combination works particularly well in kitchens, Jordan says. â€œIn any room, for a more tranquil feel, pair warm grays with warm beige and crisp white. Dusty lavenders and blues also work well.â€ A cool gray combined with sleek steel accents instantly modernizes a space.
