gray.

Last weekend, we painted our back guest room a slate gray & did a few much wanted/needed updates to the house. I have found I have an obsession with gray walls and the calming, neutral, and cozy atmosphere it creates, yet still seems to maintain a modern & sophisticated ambiance. I have been warned to now not paint the whole house gray... but I just can't get over the color. It pairs so nicely with clean, crisp whites, and plays nicely with browns AND blacks. Pretty sure I would love to have it as my nursery's color... but I am not going to get ahead of myself. For now our guest rooms are sitting pretty in grey... and the entry way and office might be creeping that way soon, too... :)

what is the color that you used that you're so smitten with? I'm wanting to paint my guest room a gray as well, but have felt a bit overwhelmed with all the choices!
