What colors should I use with gray?

My bedroom is of medium size with two large windows. I really want to use gray on the walls, but I can't decide what other colors I should use. I've had a blue bedroom for as long as I can remember, and I wanted to switch to a more sophisticated look with reds, yellows, whites, grays, and blacks. But the more I look, the more I like. I fell in love with a room on this website with light blues, greens, and grays. I also liked deep purple. Help! I'm having an indecision problem.

I love this soothing monochromatic gray bedroom with silvery blue accents.

Apparently grey goes well with pretty much anything, yellow red or blue. You can add colour by placing some cushions and throws on your bed, that way you can try all the colours you like and see what suits your taste.good luck!

Others may disagree with me, but I'm not a fan of yellow or green with gray. Orange works best with charcoal gray or silver. White, silver, black if you're going dark, blue-based reds, most blues, most purples and blue-based pinks like fuchsia and hot pink look good with all grays. You could paint the room (don't forget the ceiling) in the gray you prefer, then bring in color with linens, lighting and art like "Good Morning" http://www.spkcreative.com/large-multi-view/gallery/1756401-14-89251/Photography/Color/Landscape.html#.T-hti2h970c, "Showstopper" http://www.spkcreative.com/large-multi-view/gallery/1896002-26-89251/Photography/Digital/Floral.html#.T-htoWh970c or
.

Best,
Shari
