COLOR | GRAY ON WALLS

We cannot imagine why, but the British have always spelled it, “Grey” while we Yanks spell it, “Gray.” Either way, it is the hottest neutral right now. If you think of Gray as being cold, you would be wrong! Gray is a sophisticated neutral that provides a chic back drop to other colors, if you wish, or as part of a neutral palette.

We can’t think of a color that doesn’t look amazing with Gray. Swap out the pink accents in this room with any other color (imagine it -citron, aqua or orange) and it would be just as pretty!

Crazy about that mid-century modern piece your mother gave you, but the finish is just ho-hum?  Choose Gray!  Join one of our workshops and we’ll show you how easy it is to transform furniture pieces with Amy Howard paints and we have a half dozen excellent shades of  gray to choose from.

We must say, don’t forget the importance of the hardware when you are painting! Here the pull is painted to blend with the piece.

If you’ve got some great grays going on, we hope you’ll like us on Facebook and show us your stuff! Everyone could use a little inspiration, after all.
