Unique in it's appearance, the color gray is the perfect accent in a small space. Complimenting a warm or cool palette, shades of gray act as anchor.
One great example is Carrie Bradshaw's Upper East side rent-controlled apartment. Love how the production designer used various shades of grey throughout the space to allow moments of color to pop, like all of her amazing shoes, cool frames and rug. (via Design for Mankind HERE)
