But Color Expert defines gray besides the cloudy gray gloom and doom we might be used to:
"Gray is timeless, practical, and solid. A longstanding favorite suit color, gray can mix well with any color."
But Color Expert then unloads the common conception:
"Although well like and often worn, people rarely name gray as a favorite color possibly because Gray also is associated with loss or depression."
So where's this all going? Well, when it comes to your home, in pretty much every case, gray will be the timeless, practical, and solid color you're looking for. It's one of those neutral colors that are the easiest to match up with. And to show us how to pull it off, we've got 5 gray bathrooms that make a gray statement, but aren't associated with loss or depression!
Some of these kind of kick the old gloomy gray stereotype out the window by involving a lot of white and a lot of light, like the one above, which uses gray walls to define the blinding white of the rest of the room.
