Turning Gray Into Greige

Deciding on a paint color can be a daunting task- take one look at a paint deck, and you'll see endless possibilities. While it can be difficult to choose, simplicity is the best option for your walls.

The color gray has been the most popular color choice as design trends have evolved over the last few years, but the latest trend is incorporating warmer, lighter paint colors mixed with various textures. While grays can work well with modern, sleek designs, a warmer toned "greige" (gray-beige combination) offers a sense of comfort and neutrality that can go with just about any design style.

Take a look at the design scheme pictured- while the paint colors selected (Sherwin Williams Accessible Beige and Shoji White) would be great neutral choices for so many spaces, adding the warmth and texture of the samples shown bring life to the design. Texture is one of the most important elements of design, and picking the right paint color adds the perfect backdrop to your furniture, rugs, window treatments, and decor!
