    No gray in my house. I love creams and tans with darker trim, forest green :-)
    My sewing room is lilac.

    Not if I can help it. I live in the pacific NW where the skies are often gray. I tend to like my colors a bit brighter inside. I do put gray in my quilts as a neutral but just a little.

    Get a couple of yards of gray fabric and hang it up on the wall for a few days of cloudy and bright weather to see how well it works. One thing about it, it will make a good background to hang very bright quilts on.
    And
    a decorator's tip... paint only one wall gray, the others white.

    HATE grey. Went to a Catholic High School, and had to wear the most hideous uniforms for 4 years. I have no grey in my house, and have bought nothing grey in almost 40 years!!!!!!!

    Funny you should ask, because I am moving my sewing/creative space and am going to paint it gray.

    I find gray a depressing color...would not use in my house. Might use small amount in a quilt for a specific reason...but as a last resort. Reminds me of cloudy, depressing days.

    I agree. My only sister in law has grey everywhere in Fl.
    Her accent color is mauve. Even her floor is marble chips painted grey. She only likes grey/black and white.

    Yes, light grey painted walls. It is a cool neutral. Many accent colors can go with it. I also have rooms with grey contemporary designed wallpapper in it in our formal dining room.
    All grey carpeting. It too is a cooling color, it does not show marks easily, since most marks are blackish grey from shoes and dirt. Accent colors used in the past, pink, currently using lavender and deep purple and white. If you like pure white in things....wood trim, your doors, or shades, as opposed to off white, beige, cream.....you will really like using grey. I have never liked cream for some reason....always preferred pure white....so this was a good choice for me and was easy to change accent colors through the years.

    I had a grey entry for the past 18 years, just had it painted last week to a "winter white". Sure wish someone had told me that grey was going to be the "in" color in the near future.

    DH has decided to paint his office in a pale barely gray. I think it will be fine. It will look nice with the raspberry carpeting. (It is better than the canary he was going to use.)

    The thing I like about it is that it's a "cool" neutral. And yes, it can be combined with so many different colors, to either keep it cool, or spice it up.

    Everytime I glance at this topic's heading, I think it reads "Do you have any gray in your hair?" !!!!!!! So with THAT in mind........YES!!!!! I have LOTS of gray in my HAIR!!!! But it is well hidden with Revlon!!!!!:lol: :lol: :lol:

    Now to answer your REAL question: no, I don't have much gray in my house. I like earth tones (greens, taupes, etc.) and pastels, but I'm not really fond of gray. ;)

    My master bath is small and not very bright so its painted a soft gray, looks great with my blue walled bedroom. I also have gray doors in my kitchen (french doors and door to the garage). They came gray and I decided they looked nice in my red, white and black kitchen.
