Provenance® Woven Wood Shades


Gray is a Stylish and Sophisticated Neutral


Gray is a very flexible interior design color that you can use as a neutral, instead of beige, white or cream. Depending on the shade of gray you select, you can go cool or warm. Very few grays are simply a mix of black and white; usually they include tones of purple, pink, green, yellow or other colors.

In addition to so many variations in gray colors, gray can come in varying intensities too, from the lightest dove gray to dark steel gray.

And don’t just think of gray as a solid, smooth color when you use it in design. Part of the beauty of gray is in its texture: think different textures in fabrics, wood grain in flooring and furniture, and matte or lacquer finish in paint.
 

Gray is subtle and goes well with a lot of colors, letting the other hues get all the attention. Think French blue, purple, pink, gold, black, brown and white for accent colors.

For the most part, gray is a peaceful color that adds serenity to an interior environment. However, gray can be edgy and avant-garde when it’s used for concrete flooring or countertops.

Many elements in your home lend themselves to gray as a neutral. These include:
- Wall paint
- Tile and stone
- Upholstery fabric
- Window coverings

As an accent color, use gray for throw pillows, table linens, lamps, artwork, bed coverings and more.
