Trend Tuesday: Greige

Yay! We've found our new apartment. Well, it's a condo actually. Much larger than where we are currently, and BONUS, our new landlord is going to paint for us as well.

For the master-bedroom, we are going with my new favorite neutral, GREIGE!!! Love it!!! Yes, you've got it right, it's a combination of gray and beige, but it's got such an urban feel to it.

We've gone with Behr Paints, Gentle Rain. It's perfect! The Behr ColourSmart site doesn't do it justice compared to the actual sample. It's my new favorite!

HI, I really need some advise using this color. I painted my Kitchen Green (Behr, Grass Cloth), and my dining room and living room are adjacent to the kitchen. I've been trying to find a good neutral gray to go with it.

Would Gentle Rain be a good coordinating color with the Grass Cloth???? I've been racking my brain for a week trying to figure this out. I see you have a green accent with the Gentle Rain so I'm hoping this is the solution.

Any advise would be great. Or any other suggestion for a color that is neutral to go with the Grass Cloth would be great.
