Gray or Nay?

I grew up with gray for a while in my home. I didn't really care for it. Looking back, I think it had more to do with the finish than the color. I'm careful using gray because of it. Eggshell or satin are paint finishes I cannot use with gray. Flat or matte for me. I found these gray rooms on Houzz that I like. I must say, I still steer towards light versus dark with this hue. A friend recently told me she painted her family room charcoal. I got a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach when she said it. "I committed to it and I did it." She likes it so I am happy for her. Have I been there to see it yet? Nope.

What say you ~ gray or nay?


  1. Gray is such an interesting color. There's so much of it out there right now and it looks fresh and new. It also looks well with so many other colors. But I've also lived with gray in my own house and found that it's depressing to have it day after day. So I say nay!

  2. Hey Paula! Beautiful blog and great post on gray. I'm all for it :) I used a pale grey throughout our home, but the darker gray as an accent in the living room. Thank you for selecting one of my houzz photos of our home to demonstrate gray in an "eclectic living room design."
