4 Reasons To Work With Blue-Gray

This shade is a lot more versatile than you think


Blue-gray is an underrated color—many people love to dabble in shades of azure and charcoal, but only a handful seem to be daring enough to utilize this one-of-a-kind shade for beautifying the home. If you have been thinking about experimenting with in-between hues, here are a few reasons that might just push to delve into this piquant pigment: 

1. It strikes the balance between light and dark. 

Since blue-gray straddles both cool tones and hints of warmth, it's a great color option for spaces where you want to create a dramatic effect while keeping it welcoming. Consider using this hue in your kitchen, foyer, or guest bedroom.

2. It's a standout canvas for vignettes and wall galleries

It can be tricky to choose a base color; non-hues may look dull while vibrant shades can look too saturated. With blue-gray, you don't have to worry about those things—it's quite subdued so it won't take attention away from your statement pieces but still interesting enough to act as an accent. 

3. It matches cabin-inspired decor perfectly. 

Do you have a penchant for nautical-inspired things? If you're planning to recreate the vibe of cabin living in your home, blue-gray is a strong contender. Aside from complementing rustic pieces well, it has the power to induce the feeling of relaxation, too.

4. It's the best choice for gender-neutral nurseries. 

Gone are the days when nurseries are limited to pink and blue color schemes! If you want to create a space with timeless appeal, consider going with a unique neutral like blue-gray. It can also be a great transition shade once your bundle of joy becomes a teenager.
