Living in Portland, Oregon, I’m accustomed to gray. We’re old friends. I’ve accepted that soon the blue skies of summer will be replaced by the cozy gray dome that we live under for most of the year. You’d think I’d be sick of gray, but gray happens to be one of the hottest colors in home décor right now and I love it! Painting a bedroom gray is a great way to provide your room with a grounding neutral color to which you can add luscious pops of color. Yellows, purples, turquoise and hot pink all look stunning against a gray base. Conversely, adding gray accessories in a room adds an element of sophistication. It shows that you know what you’re doing. In the September 2012 issue of House Beautiful readers listed gray as one of their favorite color choices. Let’s take a closer look:

Gray tufted bed with hot pink accent pillow and monogrammed shams. So elegant!
The red bed and yellow pillow really stand out against the washed gray wall. It’s rustic and cozy.

If you aren’t able to commit to painting your room or you are still saving up for that special bed purchase, how about choosing gray bed linens? Try the European linen duvet and shams from Charles P. Rogers. Nothing brings a room together faster than good bedding. Enjoy!
