  • Gray is a neutral so almost anything should go with that? Blues, whites, creams...

  • I have seen deep red or purple used as a punch of color with gray.
    You could also use green, which would invoke more of a natural feeling (think rocks and plants), with less "pop" than red or purple

  • White, light blue, pink if you wanted to go femine, yellow.....you can do a lot with grey since it's a neutral color.

  • Grey is very neutral. Don't overdo it with other colors. You could use pumpkin orange or red or yellow for window treatments. Use splashes of color in couch pillows like lime green. There's a show on HGTV "Color Confidential" where she gives couples options and it always looks great.

  • Just about anything should go with it. I beige or a rose color would look nice.
