Grey Doesn’t Need to Be Gloomy

Grey isn’t new to the scene, but it has overcome it’s predecessor of beige. If you’re not ready for walls of bright and bold hues, grey can be used as the main color allowing you to take smaller risks with spots of color. If you live in an area with lengthy winters, shy away from grey with cool  undertones. Winter provides all the cool you need! Lean towards a grey/beige that still leaves you feeling warm.

If you’re questioning your color choices for an upcoming paint project or interior design update, you can’t go wrong with Emerald Green, Moroccan Blue, coral, or grey for 2013.
