New Cabinet Paint Colors: Shades of Gray

THE hot color trend right now is gray - all shades of light, dark and in-between. 

Interestingly, gray has been part of the color forecast for several years but we are just now seeing its predicted surge in popularity.  (Color forecasting organizations like the Alexandria, VA based Color Marketing Group (CMG), work with global color marketers and color designers to forecast color trends 1 - 5 years ahead.)

One of the reasons gray has become so popular is because it acts as a neutral background for almost any color combination.  It can be paired beautifully with all of today's popular colors including turquoise, tangerine, eggplant and mustard yellow.  It looks striking with white or off-white paints as well as dark stained finishes.  And it stands on its own as the dominant color mixed with other shades of gray - both light and dark shades as well as cool and warm shades.  Instead of boring and safe beige, gray is an upscale neutral color that has a lush, rich quality to it.
