Choosing Paint: How to Pick The Right Gray?

Gray is such a popular color now. It has become the new neutral.

"Gray has certainly undergone a radical transformation in the past few years — in terms of how we view it, that is. No longer is gray only associated with dreary days, serious attire and a gloomy outlook. This quiet neutral has shaken off its bad rap. Gray has not only replaced beige as being the "It" neutral, but grays are now synonymous with style, sophistication and glamour. Read on for some hints on picking a great gray paint color for your space."
