Popular Interior House Painting Colors for 2014!
The new Black…Is Gray!
Charcoal, one of many popular Gray colors, can be used as the new “black” for ANY room in your home.
We are finding this silky color everywhere as it blends the right amount of chocolate, gray and a touch of green. In this bathroom, it’s beautiful with gold, white and black accents!
Depending upon the undertone you choose, gray can vary greatly. From cool to warm and comfy but it never has to look like a “Battleship”!!

SW has pulled together a few Gray Colors along with a handful of muted accents.
I personally use bold colors sparingly, so this collection is “right up my alley”! Notice the blue, green and brown undertones? Not all grays are equal.
Gray is the perfect backdrop tho’ for 1 or 2 bold color choices in these below rooms.

Gray is not what it used to be. Today there are so many different undertones to choose from that you are certain to find a Gray that goes very well with your “fixed finishes”, such as flooring, tile, stone and countertops.
I hope this article has helped you to learn a little more about this versatile color. If you have further questions, just give me a call!
I agree! Grays have always been in our homes – in or out of style…our accent colors have just changed through the years.
