The best way to brighten up a room is with gray. Seriously.

It's the perfect base color for any type of decor. The wide range of shades make it the perfect partner for an eye-popping accent color. Toss canary yellow, slate blue or magenta into the mix with gray, and it can make the scheme work to a home's advantage.

If a room full of gray walls isn't your thing, use it as the accent by incorporating it into trims, doors or even kitchen back splashes.

Try something new this time around by giving your space a touch of gray. Check out some inspiration with the beautiful examples below.
