Glidden's Best Gray Paint Colors

You guys are the best.
 And I know you love your gray paint colors.
I've gotten a lot of e-mail asking for a few gray color selections in paints available from home improvement stores.  
The good folks at Glidden were kind enough to send me a little information for you...

Seal Grey and Pebble Grey, both pictured above, are Glidden's top selling gray selections. (Notice that Glidden uses the spelling 'grey'.)   

Krim Danzinger, Senior Color Consultant for Glidden Paint says, "When decorating a bedroom, 'Pebble Grey' is a nice choice.  More and more the bedroom is where one wants to surround oneself with a sense of peace.  We are over stimulated by our busy days and we need a space of respite, a place to fall asleep quickly and soundly.  However, a grey selection is also a wonderful backdrop for a spark of color as well. 
'Seal Grey' is a beautiful expression of quietness in this seating area.  If rest and relaxation is on your list for the weekend, this is the area to enjoy reading your favorite book." 

Glidden's Tips for Grey
·        A grey selection is a stunning color to be used for a nursery color on an accent wall.  It’s the kind of unisex color that can be companioned with either gender.  A grey appears very calming and creates a wonderful contrast with yellows or pinks. 
·        Using a grey in your kitchen can be very welcoming.  This neutral can be a backdrop to those interesting materials that are also used in your kitchen such as granite, marble and stainless steel.
·        Grey, perfect for a “man cave” atmosphere, gives the man his personal space to enjoy.  Whether it is a collection of his antiques to a movie theatre area, this grey surrounds his environment with meaningful things.

investment piece: a french pastry table



I saw one in an antique shop a while back.
The marble top was pitted and worn and it was just beautiful.
I have never forgotten about that piece.
