Gray has a reputation for being dull, neutral, and downright gloomy, so be inspired to take a chance on this much-maligned shade. Beautiful décor accessories in gray can add a calm and soothing effect to a home. The varying shades, from light dove to a dark charcoal, make gray highly versatile and a fresh alternative to the traditional neutral palette of browns, beiges, and taupes. Whether a subtle complement to colors like orange or blue, or as a bold statement piece, gray can stand its ground with bright colors or blend elegantly with softer neutrals. Add texture to a space with a variety of fabrics and materials; bring out the hidden colors in gray with rich velvets, or accentuate the industrial sheen of gray with framed photographs printed onto acrylic glass. Be bold – take a chance on gray in home décor. However it’s used, gray is sure to turn heads.
