GIVE ME A GRAY.....
Gray. It's a popular color in design, and not going away anytime soon. In rooms filled with light, high ceilings, lots of white wood trim - it's beautiful and fresh. But what about a small room, with low ceilings? Can gray work here?

Hi, and thank you for reading the blog! I love to receive questions and comments. In a dark room, double up on the lighting. More lamps, good overhead light, some mood or accent lighting and task lighting. If you have adequate lighting, your room will be even more beautiful with lovely wall color. Two singularly beautiful grays with plenty of light are Benjamin Moore STONINGTON GRAY and BENNINGTON GRAY

You can use a deeper gray if you use it with white. Here specific accent areas add color to a room, while the remaining white walls keep it light and fresh.
