my new gray favorite....


Right now I'm trying to get the feel of this den into my own den and I think I've gotten the wall color just right; Sherwin Williams Repose Gray. I just took my own advice and tried it from my list of favorite grays I'd published earlier on Houzz. Call me a happy gal, 'cause this one doesn't go blue or green - a problem I've had lately. It has a little gold in it (now don't get all scared...that's a good thing). See how awesome the brass and bronze tones look with this gray? That's what I'm shooting for....

Ooooo I like this grey, too. It's light and airy not oppressive at all. Fab! Cheers from London!

Wonderful post about a very misunderstood color! Love Love Love Shades of gray....and I'm not talking about the book! Glad I found you.

I used Repose Gray in my family room, hallway and kitchen (all connected in an open floor plan) about a year ago and still love it!

I'm taking my paint decks home with me after seeing this! I love the color and I'm dying to repaint something!

Love it! The gold definitely looks good with it and the purple is a perfect foil. Sometimes you just have to take your own advice! :)

This lounge is a beautiful shade of grey. I love that purple rug, capiz shell light, and the elegant bookcases and fireplace. Lovely room!

A great gray, as you said, not too blue or green. I have to give this a try.
Best...Victoria

Love the colour and thanks for the undertone tip. Question: Do you mind sharing your source of your wall sconces? Thank you!
