We already started the subject on shades of colors, by starting with the shades of purple in decor.  The shades of gray are modern and are with everything in the decor. But, depending on how they are used, gray tones can end up giving the feeling of a monotonous and uninteresting environment. 

In order not to take that risk, the tip is to know how to harmonize the shades of gray with other colors, in addition to having the texture of different materials to compose a cozy, creative, and original decoration.

Yes, there are different shades of gray! They can be pure, when they have only white and black in the composition, or even harmonized with other colors of the spectrum, such as blue or green. Check out the main ones:

  • Light Gray – Light gray is delicate and smooth, conveying a sense of tranquility and serenity. It is often used to create a soft, light atmosphere and to bring a fresh, light feeling to rooms.
  • Medium Gray – Medium gray is a very popular versatile hue for walls and furniture as it provides a nice neutral base. It conveys a sense of understated elegance and sophistication.
  • Dark Gray – Dark gray is deep and enigmatic, evoking a more dramatic and serious environment. Can be used to create striking contrasts in combination with lighter colors. It is often associated with sobriety. One of the most well-known shades of dark gray is graphite and lead.
