Fifty Shades

Gray. According to Merriam-Webster, it is a color that is “lacking cheer or brightness in mood, outlook, style, or flavor.” In my opinion, they couldn’t be more wrong.  I think Gray immediately elevates a home. It adds an ambience of sophistication, an element of a serenity, and an overall polish to any room.

Here are some swoon worthy gray rooms that will leave you lusting for all fifty shades.
