This week in the Cure we're thinking about color and one of our Curees needs some help. Dean loves the grey on the walls of Kate Spade's bedroom and writes:

I'm searching for the perfect grey for my living room. I want something in the cool medium-range, nothing too dark or too pale. I can't go too grey-green or grey-brown, as I'm recovering my couch in mustard yellow and want it to pop as a more yellow couch, not blend as a greeny-yellow or a sandy-gold...So I suppose maybe a grey with a vague hint of blue?
