{shades of gray}

Happy Friday Friends!

This is the year of gray's....EVERYONE is using gray and I love it as much as any other designer out there.  But I have to say....Gray can be very tricky to work with.  There are so many shades of gray with various hidden undertones...you can have pink-gray, blue-gray, green-gray, brown-gray, the list just goes on an on.  

It's a no brainer, white trim + gray walls (any shade there of...) looks good.  It's a no fail combination.  There are thousands of images of this combination on Pinterest right now.  But Gray walls instantly become trickier when you have dark stained trim.  Your woodwork can really make or break your wall color so it's important to get it right.  

Here are some of my favorite gray walls with dark stained wood.

Wall color with dark trim

I know especially in older homes...painting original woodwork isn't an option.  So finding the perfect shade of gray can really help freshen up a space! What are some of your favorite grays to use with dark trim?
