October 2022 - Gray 

We’re in the throes of fall and as we see color change all around us with brilliant bright leaves lining the streets - nature is giving us much more deep, moody tones to work with. This transition into the colder months and the spookiest month of the year is the inspiration behind October’s Color of the Month—meet Gray!

Gray is not going anywhere anytime soon because it is a classic. As a color it has more drama than white, but still gives you that neutral palette. So it's no wonder that it's so wildly popular and a timeless color. Gray is a fantastic option for those looking for a neutral color that is anything but boring. While many neutrals can feel flat, Gray has a depth to it that can make it feel both dramatic and relaxing at the same time. Like all other colors, it can have warm or cool undertones. It’s all about the undertones, friend! There is really a gray for everyone! The shade you choose will largely be dependent on the lighting in the room—the undertones will show up more or less based on the light.  

When creating a palette to work with your favorite shade of Gray, you’ll want to consider the overall feeling you want to create in the space. To keep that cool neutral vibe, pair it with other cool colors like blue, lavender, green, and crisp white. If you want to bring out a warmer look, choose contrasting colors such as pink, orange, and yellow. Of course, you can never go wrong with a crisp, bright white as an accent—it’s a classic pairing that will never go out of style! 

Of course, Gray isn’t just for the inside of your home! It will work beautifully as an allover color for your home’s exterior. When paired with bright white trim and a pop of color on your front door, Gray will instantly give your home a sophisticated, modern look with a ton of curb appeal.
