Interior Décor Going Gray?

Heritance®Hardwood Shutters in the Living Room

After binge-watching HGTV, it becomes very clear that most designers, including Chip and Joanna Gaines, are going gray. Variations of gray are being used in flooring, walls, cabinets, bathroom tile, kitchen backsplash, countertops, and window treatments. They have even introduced gray concrete kitchen sinks!

How Many Shades of Gray?

Gray can be seen as trendy, fashionable, and even aspirational. It can convey seriousness and the message “I mean business.” The colors that we choose to decorate our homes with are often said to be a reflection of our personalities. Perhaps that is why gray has become so popular. When we see gray, we think timelessness, dependability, and quality. It’s best to use the shade of gray that resonates with you. There are warm grays (yellow-based) and cool grays (blue-based). Selecting gray serves as a versatile backdrop for any style of furniture, artwork, and accessories. Perfect for the bedroom, it can appear either warm or cool, with traditional, modern, cottage, or any style of bedroom retreat. Add values of gray from dark charcoal to light gray in bedding, draperies, and window treatments.

Cool Window Treatments

Provenance® Woven Woods Vertical Drapery

By using multiple shades of gray paired with complementary cool tones, you can create a space that makes you feel at ease and peaceful. A favorite way to do this is by adding a cool window treatment. Check out the Hunter Douglas Salt and Pepper hardwood shutter called Heritance® Hardwood Shutters. This exclusive shutter collection offers six techniques to enhance the inherent character and color of the genuine hardwood, including:

  • Glazed
  • Heirloom Distressed
  • Glazed & Burnished
  • Rustic
  • Classic Distressed
  • Textured

You can select from a wide range of frame types that fit any décor. Also consider the Charred Wood colored vertical drape by Hunter Douglas called Provenance®. By adding a dark edge banding to the woven reeds, grasses, and woods, you will create a captivating conversation piece for any room in your home. Edge banding gives you the freedom to customize your vertical by combining fabric, textures, and colors.
