    Hate gray. If gray is the new color they can keep it.

    yes, one room has grey walls and grey and brown carpet.

    I am ACTIVELY looking for grey batiks that don't have a lot of patterning/print to them. IOW - they read as a solid from the galloping horse. Grey batiks are harder to find than red batiks.

    My carpeting throughout the house is light gray, my marble is dark gray. I decorate very modern/minimalistic and have always preferred gray over tans or beiges. My colors are red, black, white and gray.

    Oh gosh yes and I hate it. Honey loves the color, gray paneling in the bedroom, it depresses me to go in there, gray walls and carpet in the den, YUK! I know its the rage right now and I'll be glad when it passes.

    In one bedroom, we painted it a very pale grey. It's a Behr paint and the name of the color was Tsunami sky. It really looks very nice, not gloomy at all. The carpet in there is a slate grey, and there is some black and metallic furniture.

    We had our house painted on the outside with light gray, black shutters, and white trim. Only gray hair on the inside.

    I used to have gray carpet. It was great because it goes with anything.

    We have grey in the hallway and grey in the bathroom. Our bathroom used to be pink but I much prefer the grey because you have more choice in the accent colors. I have black towels and chocolate brown and rust color towels that I change every few days. Yellow also looks great with grey but I don't dare use yellow towels not with two little grandsons who don't always get all the dirt off their hands when they wash them.

    Yes, I have a pretty gray wall with granite flakes mixed in with the paint. When the sun from the skylight hits it, it's so sparkling. On the opposing wall I have a soft greyish marble wallpaper that compliments the wall. Never thought I would like grey, but it is really stunning and makes a great backdrop for hanging a quilt.

    I had grey carpet in a former house and could not wait until we finally got it changed out. Gray doesn't go with anything!

    Yes, yes, yes! My carpet is a pearl grey (light). We also had the same color in our last house in Arizona (purchsed in 1987). Grey has always been a neutral - just now being discovered by decorators I guess. Went with this color because I absolutely detest beige in any way, shape or form and it seems like most carpeting has been in this color for years - did have it in a house fromm 1979 but it was a step up from the 1975 rust that was in our first home!!

    Oh forgot - my hair is starting to match my carpet!

    I just painted my living room a "Shimmer Gray" and love it. Depending on how the light hits it you can see bluesish, lavender or gray. Very pretty. I am 70 and did all the painting and moving of furniture by myself, pretty proud of that.

    Accidentally....but I really love it! I thought I was buying more of a taupe paint to pull the color in my tile. It looks grey more days than taupe, but I get more compliments on it.....

    The walls are painted battleship grey in both my bathrooms. My brother, who is a finish carpenter, suggested the color.
