If the previously featured blue bathrooms were a tad too colorful for you, perhaps gray is more your speed. Gray has been a popular neutral for quite a while now, and it doesn’t appear to be falling out of favor anytime soon. One complaint I’ve seen about gray is that it can feel too cold and institutional. Here are some examples of how to use gray in a way that is warm and inviting ... more

Ready to move beyond winter white yet? Perk up your senses with an injection of yellow hues in your home. Bathrooms are excellent spaces for this energetic color, since unlike a bedroom or living room, it’s not a space we tend to spend long periods of time in. Being greeted first thing in the morning by a generous dose of yellow as you step into the bathroom can be just the thing to help jump-start the day ... more
Gray is a popular neutral to use with more attention-grabbing hues, but I’ve been seeing gray stand all on its own more and more in residential interiors. The trick to working with gray is to counterbalance its coolness so that it doesn’t end up feeling sterile and institutional. You can do this by adding warm wood tones or by choosing a shade of gray on the warmer end of the spectrum. Of course, if you live in a hot climate, a predominantly cool gray bathroom can feel soothing.
Here are some gray paint selections that run the gamut from light to dark and cool to warm, along with seven stylish examples of how to use gray in a bath ... more
Light gray is this decade's trendiest neutral. It has replaced beige as the wall color of choice. (I actually don't know if this is true in a statistical sense, but it sure feels like it.)
A true neutral gray is a mixture of black and white, but we hardly ever see a true neutral gray. What we see are infinite shades of warm and cool grays. Warm grays have yellow or brown undertones. Cool grays have a blue undertone. The ubiquitous "greige" is a very warm gray that can look almost beige.
Cool or blue grays tend to have a very crisp, almost icy look to them. They are wonderful with bright whites in formal rooms and with blues and beiges. You can treat them almost like a light blue. Warm or yellow grays are complemented by creamy whites and warm colors like yellows, pinks and natural woods.
But, of course, there are no fast rues. A cool gray can be the perfect way to offset wood, and you are more than welcome to mix a warm gray with blues.
These examples show a variety of mash-ups that work and illustrate the beauty and versatility of the color ...more

I love gray for its versatility. You can go light or dark, warm or cool, and still pair the neutral with just about any other color. Cool grays look fantastic combined with warm wood tones, or go for a warmer gray and add in some black, white and/or metallic accents for a clean, sophisticated vibe.
