It is light gray and dark while others totally “blocked” that clear.
Clogged, painting, meaning they absorb light and totally do not highlight the colors associated with them.
Also the use of gray is it to be difficult.
A perfectly neutral gray produced by mixing black and white should be avoided in decoration, except for small areas and by juxtaposing it with other gray.
You must choose the color of your walls for your gray: gray-blue, gray-green, gray-pink, gray-purple etc. as you would any other color and that depending on the items that you will have in the room.
Purple and orange are colors that blend well.
With a pale orange sofa, the designer has chosen for this show a gray purple for the walls and the decorative elements associated with all red, pink and brown pulling the orange.
The soil, a color very close to that of the sofa is illuminated by a white carpet patterned pink-orange and dark wall illuminated by a juxtaposition of prints with a white background.
If you are not working on a complementary color as in the previous example (purple-orange, additional second-tier), you can use the principle of mixing unequal parts (different from the principle “shades” which, to him, declines the same color in different values (light-dark).
The principle is: the colors obtained by mixing the same “ingredients” in different proportions agree.
Nice demonstration in this example against a wall with gray-green, almond green carpet (obtained by mixing blue and yellow lime), lime yellow accessories, curtains gray that contain more yellow than green, beige sofa that pulls on the yellow ground and a light caramel.
No blue component in this harmony.
Moldings and baseboards are painted in the color of the wall. The prints are framed in dark gray worn, sweeter than a solid color.
In this room, the bedspread had to focus the decoration of the room.
The small bedside cabinet beautifully painted gray green was purchased to match the orange tones of the fabric.
Three shades of gray were placed by the designer Isabel Lopez Quesada around these two elements and carefully selected to match each other and the two initial elements.
See how the eye travels easily from light gray to the headboard, green to gray bedside cabinet, to medium gray door, then the solid gray wall
A hint of pink in this slightly lighter gray and very bright.
He was chosen to agree with paintings and engravings shaded in pale pink, the pink and white striped rug.
Pale pink accessories (decanter, glasses) and light wood with no trace of orange.
In this corridor, the gray is almost black. It is a slate gray.
The gray slate contains blue.
A harmony which, again, is based on the complementary color: blue complementary orange.
As orange colored glass that overcomes the passage to the living room (the door was removed to allow sunlight to penetrate continuously into the hallway).
This gray very strong (the higher value of gray) is bearable because the space is dedicated to the passage and not the extended stay.
Its value is offset by the dark white door frames, ceiling, floor and basement.
You will notice an employee on the base of the walls and ceiling, the white mat is chosen.
Its brightness is accentuated by its brilliant. This is a white lacquer that was used to paint the floor and door frames.
In addition to choosing the color, you must also decide on the paint finishes: matte, satin or gloss: life is hard!
If you are not looking for clarity at all costs but to a little privacy or room caulked, the solid gray is a good option for your walls.
Here a gray containing yellow walls and a gray-containing purple for curtains. A pearl gray for the square of carpet that warms the floor.
The game is therefore also complementary in shades of gray that you associate.
