    I painted my grandaughters bedroom a pale, silvery gray and when I first chose the color my daughter said oh my gosh Mom, that's awful, but once painted on the wall, she loved it. All the other colors in the room just seem to sing with this lovely gray as a background. I painted very large roses on one wall and they just appear to jump out at you. It is really beautiful.

    It seems a bit 'weird' to me, though.

    In the late 1950's - back when the dinosaurs still walked the earth - that's what the high school guys were wearing - in Minnesota in a tiny rural town!
    Elvis was King and wore those colors. Ah, my favorite skirt was a double circle that was black with four inserts that were several shades of grey. I always wore it with a pink sweater.

    Well, in a bathroom that color you wouldn't want to linger long - good psychology. Some restaurants do that with colors. They want the tables to turn over quickly.

    I personally love pink & gray & made a Dresden Plate quilt for my DH's boss's baby back in the 80's from that combo (wow... I'm OLD!). I also remember back in the 60's that my aunt's house had pink & gray marble in her master bathroom (oh, I thought it was so elegant!)... the house had probably be built in the late 50's.

    My DD just bought her first house & painted quite a bit of it in gray. You're right... it's the perfect foil for all the other colors she brought it... I love it!

    Gray & yellow seem to be a very hip color combo right about now, too. In fact, I've been trying to find out the name of some of the lines in that combo. I personally love it!

    Another big color combo is grey and yellow. I have also seen grey and lavender. Love the more modern look. Luann in CT

    My family is having a bumper crop of baby boys in 2012 and most of them have/will have gray in their nurseries. Their moms are mixing gray with light blue and white or brights like turquoise, orange, and yellow.
