Shades of Grey

Source: houzz.com via Erica on Pinterest

Grey wall colors look sophisticated and elegant, and they can have a peaceful, calming effect on a room. But depending on the undertone, each grey also has its own distinctive characteristics. For example, pure greys are clean and crisp; bluish greys are pretty and light-hearted; green-based greys are more serious and grounded, while greys with purple undertones add a touch of mystery and warmth to a room. Grey walls look best when they have a chalky, flat finish. A glossy sheen does look sleek, but it also brings out the coldness in greys. Deep, dark grey color looks stunning in powder rooms, formal dining rooms, living rooms and bedrooms (but it needs to be balanced with white or cream) as shown above.
