    I think that depends of the size of the room and the actual color of gray.Posting a picture would help others with your color choice.

    A soft butter color would look great with gray.

    I agree with Janet. More information would help. Does your room get a lot of light? What other colors or accents do you plan to use in the room. What colors have you used in the rest of your house? Does this room open onto any other rooms?

    A butter or turquoise

  • What colors do you love? Gray is a neutral and will go with almost any color. If you have no clue, I would visit some model homes and open houses in higher priced homes and get a feel for color. If you have little sunlight then darker deeper colors will darken and make the room appear smaller. If you have a lot of sun light pouring in then you can go with deeper colors to give you a cozier feel. Go to the store and get 4-6 paint chips and tape them to each wall and at different time sof the day see what the color looks like. Sometimes in the store it may look gray but you get home it can be more purple or even green. Never ever just buy a color without taking home a sample! good luck

    Try a sample of Ballet Slipper Pink, Martha Stewart ... It doesn't really jump out at you pink and it is beautiful with grey. I did that color on my walls with gray and white counters and floors. It is GORGEOUS!

    what shade of gray..there are so many. Depending on the shade..some look good with greens, some lavender..white is always good. You can use a pop of color like orange or pink. Gray is a lovely color..paired with black and white for the drama.
