I see this article is almost 3 years old, but I have to say how helpful it is. I'm in love with gray right now, but need color to go with it and have been really struggling. For some inexplicable reason, it never occurred to me to just use colors with gray IN them. Seeing the examples is what really helped. Thank you!

So adding darker pigments (grey or black) to blue makes the blue a neutral? And that gives a feel of blue but not the weight of blue. I am trying to understand as I want a blue wall, but not one that blares at me. Could you possibly add an example in terms of a brand paint, with number or " name", so I can go to a store and get your point visually. This from someone who saw a photo on HOUZZ with brand BM and name ( alpine sky) ...ran out to see it in a store...and learnt that naming must have been "old" as not in current BM system.
