The year 2015 has struck the market with the color trend gray. The “new neutral” can be seen anywhere from hairstyles on women under the age of 65, to the interior of homes. Many designers prefer to use bolder colors in homes; therefore, they can blend in the gray to help tone down the brightness of the different colors. Gray is a good color to incorporate with statement colors in the living room or kitchen because it acts as a neutralizer. Gray has been found in all types of homes: modern, traditional, contemporary, eclectic and rustic and has become a prominent trend in the kitchen and bath industry.
