Gray seems to have replaced beige in the “go to neutral’ which is fine with me. There are so many variations of gray that will really please just about everyone so it may be around for a little while longer. I’m wondering, is too much a of a good thing bad? Are we breaking gray right now?
The only great thing about gray is that it goes with all the other “colors of the year”. How long before we get tired of gray? Gray walls, gray furniture, gray carpeting, gray this, gray that. If we break gray, what will the new neutral be?
Blue is still going hot and heavy and I have a feeling that gray will be long gone before blue even starts to show a wrinkle. What if a super pale blue comes the new neutral for the home? Everyone is crazy about blue and I can so see this happening.
What about if a really pale green becomes the new neutral? Not so much. Green is having a bit of trouble with some staying power these days and I just don’t think it has enough bones to stand up to a predecessor of gray … or does it?
There are only so many true neutrals to use and I don’t think we should go back to beige. What hue do you see coming in after we’re done breaking gray?
