    Apparently gray is the new neutral, when it comes to the up-and-coming fabric collections.

    And so I'm wondering.... do you have any gray in your house?

    Yes. Our bedroom is pale grey with burgandies and black. It's actually pretty neutral. That's why I use a lot of grey in my quilts.
    Now if you're talking about my hair, I recommend Nice & Easy haircoloring.

    I don't have gray in my house but have started using it in quilts... I don't think I'd like gray walls in my house but in quilts I love it.

    We're doing some minor remodeling and afterwards will be painting all the downstairs rooms and have been thinking of light gray. It would be a nice change from the beige walls we've had for years, the gray looks so cool when viewed on those TV redecorating shows.

    I once rented a furnished apt. that was all done in black, gray and white. Talk about depressing. Even the bathroom fixtures were black. Only good thing, toilet never looked dirty.

    Gray hair! :lol: I should have known someone would mention it!

    Hadn't thought about the cats, though!

    Ok, looks like I do have two sources of gray in my house then!

    I have a large design wall (White) just read where a grey is a better color..so on my smaller design wall I covered it in light grey..I must say.. I like the effect it gives off..thinking of trying it somewhere else as a neutral !!

    We have a gray bathroom and a gray hall. I like it. In my last apartment, my living room was a brownish gray (the paint was called "mushroom" ).

    I love neutral and warm grays. I do not care for cool grays. One of my favorite color combinations is gray and citron!

    i don't but i am ALWAYS SEARCHING for fabrics that read gray---grays seem to be so hard to find- if it is coming out as a new neutral i am excited!
    i have so many quilt patterns-ideas that need that gray that i search and search for- and it isn't all that easy to create your own...
    yea gray!

    No gray in our house either. Some people need to know when enough of a color is enough. I remember way back when we bought our house...everything was a olive green (inside and out)except three rooms (out of 8)one was not painted walls, one was a bedroom and was bright yellow with lime green carpet, and the kitchen was bright yellow with fruit (huge print) wallpaper. The walls were green, carpet was green, curtains were green. We think they got a great deal on a 55 gallon drum of the paint.
