CALL IT GREIGE

beige-y gray?   or gray-ish brown?

whatever you prefer to call it, the effect is the same
calm
soothing
warm
and the perfect background for the beautiful trappings of a room

Greige is a blend of gray and beige, brown or taupe.  In this case, a gray with a brown undertone

Some call it a 'warm' gray.

and in this case, a beige with a gray undertone.  
A cool beige.

but just as wonderful as a deep dark gray/taupe

Its hard to find a color that DOESN'T look good with Greige.

HI Claudine... I need your help!
I am remodeling our kitchen/family room , and I  picked out creamy buttery cabinets for the kitchen with  ivory  granite( its has some light-ish gray and small specs of espresso) .   The island is an espresso color cabinet. ( the same ivory granite would  be on the island) . I want to modernize  the feel and am using brush nickel knobs for the doors.
My question is , I want to use a gray color on the walls (nothing that can turn gray or blue)  in the kitchen/ family room , but would like a beige-y wall accent color.  I have a large wall behind the TV. Or if you have another suggestion ?
I want to keep the feel light and modern and also have a taupe sofa that I bought to go in family room.
My original decor is very mediterranean , and I just want to get rid of that feel.
...I would like BEHR/Glidden paint for your suggestion...
Thank You so much!! I live in Tampa Florida
love your blog and pictures by the way....
Juanita, 

Hi Juanita, A little confused on wanting a gray that doesn't turn gray...?   but I'll go with the no blue undertone and suggest beautiful BEHR Dolphin Fin, or beige BEHR Castle Path.

A deeper tone - BEHR Ashes or Ashwood.

If you want a beige accent wall, the beige-r BEHR Koala Bear is great.
