Home decorators who want to integrate gray tones in their homes don't have to give up their love of warm colors.

Gray, as one of the newest neutrals to gain popularity, goes as well with creamy beige as it does with white, according to DesignDecorStaging.com. It also can offset strong accent colors - such as soft orange and tones of turquoise – not normally associated with gray.

Blue-gray walls work well with traditional white cabinetry and stainless steel appliances in a kitchen, but those also look good with dark wood cabinetry. Deep brown and shades of gray in home furnishings combine both a modern and traditional palette.

In living rooms, light gray walls may be accented with vibrant colors such as deep red or eggplant purple either in accessories or as a secondary wall color. Pewter lamp bases, silver gray fabrics and rug patterns drawing in several gray shades, as well as an accent color, work well in a gray room.

For window treatments, fabric roller shades can incorporate gray and other colors within a room in a pattern or print. Or they can be matched to a gray wall color for a monochromatic effect.
