Paint Color Portfolio: Charcoal Living Rooms

It seems that gray has become the new neutral of choice. From soft, cool grays to darker, warmer ones, there's a gray to suit every taste. But for many, nothing beats a deep, rich charcoal. Tenebrous and moody with a cozy, elegant edge, charcoal is a reminder of the first hints of evening when the gloaming shadows come out to play. Bold enough to create a distinct backdrop, it's also neutral enough to let other colors come to the fore. INSPIRATION ROOMS: 1. House to Home 2. Crystal's Dramatic Home in San Francisco 3.
