Turn your case of the “winter blues” into the “winter grays!” If all this time indoors has you contemplating a change to your space, and you have a contemporary or modern home style, incorporating shades of gray will infuse subtle sophistication into any room. With such a wide spectrum of grays, from red-toned to blue-toned, there is sure to be a shade out there to suit your existing furnishings or décor. Here are several ways to use this neutral in your home:

Gray provides the perfect neutral backdrop for currently trending accent colors like soft, dusty pinks, and pale blues and greens. Gray drapery or furniture will allow any accent color you use to truly pop, whether it’s on the softer side or more vibrant. Or combine gray with white to add variation to a minimalist space.
This “Gray All Day” moodboard from studiobstyle has us inspired to go monochromatic using varying shades of gray, from darker matte charcoals (as shown in the countertop piece) to the lighter gray-white cabinets and backsplash. The flooring, our Lime Silk Oak RP96, ties both grays and the stainless steel fixtures together, as it features a variation of dark and light grays.
Instead of using the floor to tie elements together, you could start with a neutral gray floor to set the stage for a room remodel or build. We offer plenty of gray floors to suit your style, including the rustic Aged Redwood VGW100T, textured Cambric CER20, clean-lined Grano WP311, sleek Raven Oak LLP302, and streamlined Washed Grey Ash RKP8104 – just to list a few.
