Last summer's hot read "Fifty Shades of Grey". Is it the color of our nations' mood? It is the drabbest color on the palette! The answer is....
The color Gray is the color of intellect, knowledge, and wisdom. It is perceived as long-lasting, classic, and often as sleek or refined. It is a color that is dignified, conservative, and carries authority. Gray is controlled and inconspicuous and is considered a color of compromise, perhaps because it sits between the extremes of black and white. Gray is a perfect neutral, which is why designers often use it as a background color.
I recently asked some other designers what their favorite color of grey was - I received 40 different shades of grey's Here were the top chosen colors
|Abalone 2108-60 Benjamin Moore|
OC28 - Collingwood Benjamin Moore
gray owl – 2137-60 Benjamin Moore
