"We see gray as a big trend, as well as aqua blue and tangerine. Gray looks good with cooler tones such as aqua blue, and tangerine pops when used with gray.  

When I was in design school, I remember a colorist telling us that people choose gray during turbulent times. When people go through a divorce, they choose gray. In the early 1980's when we were going through financial difficulties, gray was a popular trend. And currently we're experiencing economic turbulence. 

We're seeing a lot of cabinets in gray tones, and colors in accessories and furniture. Restoration Hardware has a lot of gray and neutral tones, and that look is popular with people."
