Gray, But Not At All Gloomy

Gray, But Not At All Gloomy

It's been raining cats and dogs for the past day over much of the eastern part of the country. All that rain and gloomy clouds have turned my white walls into an interesting shade of gray that I'm actually loving. While of course I miss the sunshine filling my home — I could get used to all this gray indoors.

Gray walls create an ambiance unlike any other color. It provides a cool and calm atmosphere no matter what room it goes in. I particularly love it in bedrooms — it ensures relaxation!

While you might not immediately think gray would be the best choice in the home office, it actually works really well in a place where you need to focus. If you're after the dark, dramatic yet romantic look — gray is your guy. Accessorize the room to play up the dark attributes or go with the opposite; totally bright and white.
