A Vancouver WA Home Builder Discusses Finding the Right Shade Of Gray

Spring is right around the corner and with it comes bright spring greens and pastels, reminding us of the revolving color palette we see so often in this beautiful area. Gray is a great color to serve as a base for these beautiful colors. There are so many shades to consider, a few of them are: River gray, rock gray, cloud gray, and fog gray.

While gray is definitely rising in popularity, many homeowners are still shying away from using the color. This is especially true in climates that experience overcast weather. Here are some tips for making the most of gray:

  1. Use the right gray
  2. Complement gray with color accents
  3. If you are nervous about the color, start small
  4. Incorporate living plants with gray
  5. Consider purchasing less permanent window coverings in gray
