24 Feb 2015: Shades of Grey
This achromatic, non-color is a trending choice for floors and walls
It’s low-VOC, indoor-air friendly, and it looks just like no other.
These are all cool things the Yoga Bar’s owner can say,But a lot of today’s floors are simply trending grey.
An intermediate hue, between black and white;
It is said to be colorless, like a cloud-covered kite.
Survey respondents called it indifferent, old and boring;
But floor after floor, this non-color is scoring.
It afforded perfect balance in this master bath design;
Neither masculine, nor feminine, nor dainty, nor divine.
The customer was thrilled and said it was the best thing she could do;“The colors have to fit; it’s my husband’s bathroom too.”
Try grey on Yellow Birch, if you think it’s bland or achromatic;
Depending on the lighting, many shades appear like magic.
There may be hints of yellow, or even pink or blue;
But look again, and you will see, grey anchors and stays true. ©
