Interior Ways to Introduce Grays
Gray is an easy transzonal color to incorporate into your home. The Ventura Homes designers will use gray as a subtle change of definition in an otherwise neutral themed interior. Grays with a brown undertone work well in an entirely neutral themed home. There are no colors to come out of the paint when placing furniture and other decorative elements. Grays also work well with stark hardware choices like black or oil rubbed bronze.
Another type of gray that we like to use are ones with green undertones. The room will have a small hint of color that pairs well with your earthy-toned décor. House plants (AKA our second children) make a big impact in the room when paired with a gray-green paint. Gold frames as well as hardware often coincide well with gray.
Blue-based grays are another gray we like to select. This type of gray works well with decorative tile that incudes blues, blacks, and whites. Stained beams are more noticeable when using a gray paint. Textures such as shiplap, swirled countertops, and wood grains stand out most often when using a base-toned color such as gray.
The designers will use a dark gray for exterior choices such as outdoor trim, shutter, and door color. As for the interior, they will choose a darker-toned gray for the island, desk, or mud bench to set it apart from the rest of the interior.
