A classic color from Benjamin Moore is Titanium. This gray changes as the light inside of your room changes from morning to night. Also, experiment with Behr’s Gray Area, another classic that can add much desired touch of mystery and drama to a boring white room.
But why settle for one shade of gray when you can choose a few? Surely, a nice combination of different shades of gray is never boring. Next time you decide to take-on a weekend project, or if you recently moved into a new home where all walls are covered with contractor-grade yellowish white or soulless beige, go to a store and pick up some brushes and a couple or three buckets of gray paints.
This photograph below shows a selection of beautiful grays by BHER paint. A carefully chosen combination of 2 to 3 shades can give a room or hallway an element of interest.
Yes, we all think and agree super white walls are always great… and Art displayed on those white walls are, no doubt, impeccable. But why settle for the expected? Go a step further and choose a perfect shade of gray that is in-between, not too bright not too dark. Choose a chameleon-like very light gray (almost white with few drops of gray). The kind that even you cannot tell if it’s white or gray… a shade that keeps you and your friends guessing every time they see it. Choose a shade which makes you feel good and I promise your Art will never look the same.
