    I love the warm grays that are so popular today! In process of repainting our interior now to update the browns and tans to warm tones of gray!

    My best friend had a house with a grey interior. It was depressing! Color (LOTS of color) in the furnishings was not enough to dispel the gloom. It really made a huge difference when she painted the house lovely colors. Great for accent, but don’t do an entire house in grey!
