Is it Gray or Grey?

The color gray/grey has gotten a bad rap — gray hair, gray day! Of course, there is a positive gray —- GailGray!

First question, which is the correct spelling?   Actually both are correct.   In British English, the spelling is typically spelled “Grey” but in American English, it is typically spelled “Gray”. Of course, for me, the color “GRAY” is always spelled with an A!

It’s time to forget your dreary images of gray because the sun is shining on this multidimensional color and it is HOT, HOT, HOT in the world of interior design. From Charcoal to Dove, pick a shade and it is huge right now. Why not add some gray to your day?

Gray is an ideal choice for your home furnishings. It is neutral, not beige, loves any color you put with it and gives warmth to any room….a timeless classic, from traditional to modern. How about this gray sofa which you can add orange, yellow, green, red, blue accents…you name it!



The four drawer dresser in a light gray paint would fit in any room and décor. Look at the royal blue jars on top….quite stunning.


Check out this gray and cream neutral bedding. Why not paint the wall charcoal to make this bed pop? Don’t you want to crawl right in?


So if you want a timeless classic (think gray men’s gabardine suits, Nantucket weathered cottages ) or a bit edgy (exposed pipes in an industrial loft)…..go GRAY!
