“This is a prefect grey hue for those who prefer understated decor, it is neither too cool, nor too warm, and this neutral grey is calm and easy to live with. Pairing Light Pewter with a glossy white trim, gives this gray a remarkable presence.”

“I have coincidentally been focused on a taupey brown-gray scheme for my new building at Five Points. I like the warmth of these grays and one I used as an accent is Acier SW 9170, a lovely shade and a nice alternative to all the colder grays we have seen of late.”

“Amy Howard’s Selznick Grey in the One Step chalk-based paint is a beautiful warm, gray; blending perfectly with the warm, cozy colors of fall.”
