Does your gray turn blue?
When it’s blue! Colors change with the light of day so be really careful when choosing your grays because you’re bound to be a little blue from time to time if you choose Uncertain Gray.
I just visited a client yesterday who had this color in their living room. They were actually looking for a gray and thought this would be a good choice, after all, it clearly says “gray” in the name.
After they painted their two story living room and looked at their new color they were surprised to find out that it was really more blue than gray.
“We thought we would get a gray!” they said. I responded with a “well you will, sometimes.”
I know that sounds silly but some colors, especially these muted hues, change like a crazy chameleon! Lighting really plays such a tremendous role in viewing any color. The funny thing is that Uncertain Gray looks grayer on the chip but when I held it up to their painted wall, it was a perfect match. This is one of those times when I too scratch my head in disbelief.
Uncertain Gray is really a great color and a popular one at that but be warned, it will look more blue than gray. Don’t let the name fool you. Just because it says “gray” in the name doesn’t mean it’s a gray. Is this a true blue? Heck no! Is it a true gray. Nope. It’s clearly “uncertain” exactly what color this is but I can tell you, it’s a winner.
