By Southshoredecoratingblog

Thank you so much for the positive response on the first post I did in this series (here). I received WAY more questions than I thought I would. I probably won't be able to answer them all, but keep them coming and I'll do my best. My email address is always accessible in the sidebar, or if you receive posts by email, you can just hit "reply" to any emailed post.
The question I chose for today, from Lady Dy, is "What colors work best with gray?"
Answer:  Just about everything. It's why I love gray so much - I can't think of any colors off the top of my head that wouldn't work with it, since it is almost like black, a real neutral.

5. Hot Pink or Purple  Some people like light pink with gray, but it's not for me. Technically it goes, but I don't love it, so I'm not showing it. The same with yellow - it goes great with gray, but I'm sick to death of it, so I'm not showing it!
