A Newer Way to Do Gray
"Gray is not going away," says Jackie Jordan, director of Color Marketing for Sherwin-Williams. Yes, it's been trending as a bedroom color for years, but she notes that people have recently been gravitating to those with opal and violet undertones.

Why You'll Love It: It obviously goes well with metallics, but it also pairs nicely with natural elements like driftwood or wool.

What to Watch Out For: Gray isn't as neutral as you might think, says Jordan. Warmer tints can be much easier to work with and won't give off that cold, industrial feel.
