Gray and Red
“Light gray and red can create a variety of moods—historic, nautical, French,” says Nan Kornfeld, an architectural color specialist based in San Francisco. “Darker gray and red is a strong, somewhat heavy combination with a solid, masculine feel.”
Deep gray walls create a cozy haven, making red accents even more dramatic.
