Say goodbye to beige – gray is the new “it” color. Any shade of gray works well as a base, allowing you to layer on soft tones of lavender, sand, blue and green. Even the free treats given out at the showrooms include pearl gray M&Ms! Light woods are everywhere, and rustic finishes on modern shapes let you bring the warmth of rustic into even a contemporary home. Overall, colors are softer and more soothing – perhaps to comfort us as we rebound from the cold winter months!
