Fifty shades of the hot paint color for 2014

The "hot" colors are well...not hot. The Paint Quality Institute comes out with the trendy colors for the coming year--next year, gray.

"A hot new neutral, a sleek and sophisticated color that adds refinement to any room."

Gray will also appear washed on woodwork and in fabrics used for seating and floors.

Also "in" for 2014--black and white. There will be at least 50 shades of white with a hint of color mixed in.

White also makes smaller spaces look bigger--remember, people will be downsizing.

Another comer is mustard yellow--now that is my favorite. We call it monkey vomit green. My bedroom walls are that color.

But the important thing is to stick with colors you love--not just those some "expert" loves.

That pix of the gray bedroom--restful or putting you to sleep? Which?
