A subtle and elegant gray with cool undertones helps to create a soothing background. Whether you are looking for sleek touch in the kitchen, a dreamy and sophisticated color for the bedroom, or balanced out with warm colors in the living room, this color can do it all.

Stainless Steel 37B-4 by Clark + Kensington
“It can be paired with neutral oranges or charcoals that bring a sense of creativity to a room,” Shannon Olear, paint marketing manager at Ace Hardware.
A fresh color reminiscent of periwinkle that can be used to bring an elegant brightness to your space. Try it as an accent wall in the living room or to make that half bath pop. This color invites play and experimentation!
Orange Slice By Valspar

Not for everyone, this vibrant orange is great for experimenting in a bonus room, adding a bright pop to an office, or (for the truly bold) in a spare bedroom paired with neutral toned fabrics.
