Thinking Outside the Box: Painted gray trim

So we all know that gray is the color palette homeowners are gravitating towards, and from what I've seen in the industry and in my own opinion, gray is not going anywhere for a while.  We are seeing gray in our fabrics and furniture finishes as well as on the walls, paint & wallpapers.  Recently I posted on incorporating gray into your kitchen (here)....more
