Light Gray Bedroom

Terri G – March 27, 2016 – 2:07 AM Laurel, thanks for the beautiful articles on the different Grays. I have a question. I am getting ready to paint some of the rooms in our new house Gray. The first room is the living room combo dining room which is cobalt blues and white w/some champagne intermingled. This room faces the North East. From this room, you can see the family room / kitchen (great room?). It has a wheat sectional with area run in wheat dark Gray & beige design. The Kitchen cabinets are going to be painted a dark tone of whatever Gray I go with on the walls. This room faces South West. All of the rooms get lots of light depending upon the time of the day. My question is when it comes to cool and warm Grays. My colors of cobalt in the one room I feel should be done in a cool Gray and the wheat colors in the family / Kitchen should be in a warm Gray. All of the trim – base boards & doors will be in white. I would prefer to use one color Gray in all of the rooms if possible and using a light Gray to keep the rooms light and bright. Is there a Gray that will work with both of my color schemes without giving off an undertone that will possibly clash? Thank you for any help you can provide on this. TerriReplyCancel

Light gray is this decade’s trendiest neutral. It has replaced beige as the wall color of choice. (I actually don’t know if this is true in a statistical sense, but it sure feels like it.) A true neutral gray is a mixture of black and white, but we hardly ever see a true neutral gray. What we see are infinite shades of warm and cool grays. Warm grays have yellow or brown undertones. Cool grays have a blue undertone. The ubiquitous “greige” is a very warm gray that can look almost beige.Cool or blue grays tend to have a very crisp, almost icy look to them. They are wonderful with bright whites in formal rooms and with blues and beiges. You can treat them almost like a light blue. Warm or yellow grays are complemented by creamy whites and warm colors like yellows, pinks and natural woods.But, of course, there are no fast rues. A cool gray can be the perfect way to offset wood, and you are more than welcome to mix a warm gray with blues. These examples show a variety of mash-ups that work and illustrate the beauty and versatility of the color.

anne – February 27, 2017 – 12:32 PM I’ve been trying to find a gray to emphasize my golds, greens and reds in my living room and dining room which open up to each other.. My rooms are small and dark (Chicago winters!) with east exposure. I’m thinking of painting the walls light gray and the ceilings a light gold to reflect light, like BM Antiquity OC107. Warm gray is recommended for my colors, but some blogs have said that using gold with a warm gray will muddy the gray. I’d appreciate your advice. Your site is very helpful, although I just found it yesterday. Lots of information. Thank you.ReplyCancel

Choosing colors for a tween boy isn’t always easy — nor is designing a room that will grow with him. Blue is so basic; gray, on the other hand, can add a masculine touch that feels right at any age. “Our challenge for this project was to design a room for a 12-year-old boy that wasn’t too age specific, and was personalized enough for him to feel comfortable in a more ‘grown-up’ space as he transitioned into his teen years,” says designer Laura McCroskey. “We used a soft gray paint (Benjamin Moore HC-95) on three walls and the ceiling of this room to create a neutral and cozy retreat, but painted the accent wall behind his bed with cinnabar for a splash of energy. We also used values of gray from dark charcoal to light gray in his bedding and draperies. The chrome lamps and accessories complemented the grays and added a touch of bling. The room is accessorized with a bookcase for books and his childhood treasures and a wonderful study desk in gray canvas with leather trim.”

Gray may be everywhere in design right now, but which gray you choose for you own space depends on the other colors you’ll be incorporating. In this bedroom, part of a modern condominium in Chicago, a steel gray works perfectly with the saturated shades of the bedding and rug. “Our client prefers the absence of color, but wanted her daughter to be able to express her own personality in her bedroom. A neutral background allows for bold pops of color such as the Donghia Suzani headboard, the Atelier Lapchi rug and the Missoni draperies,” says designer Jessica Lagrange.

Laurel Bern – March 2, 2016 – 6:30 PM Hi Anne, You’re confused, because it IS confusing! Because when we are talking about color, we are talking about the light that it is reflecting. The prevailing thinking is pretty much what you say, except that I’m not a big one for hard and fast “paint rules” because light changes. For instance, my bedroom faces south and west, but in the morning, it’s more like a north facing room and on a gray day it’s well… gray! Then, at night—it’s always the same, of course. Nobody ever seems to talk about that. This is why Iargely prefer to classify rooms more as light and dark and because you can have a dark south facing room and a bright north facing room! Some colors seem to look good no matter what. But they will look different is all. This is why I advocate for making separate large samples and moving them around the space in all different lights to get the over-all effect.ReplyCancel
