Gray is quickly becoming one of the most popular of the "neutrals" and no wonder--it provides a stunning background for any interior space. From the palest of pale tones to deep rich and mysterious shades, they each evoke a different mood.

Get a light and airy effect, a soft traditional look or a touch of glamorous Old Hollywood by choosing just one of the many grays.

Silver metals are also seen in wall art frames and mirrors because they look so striking against a gray background.
