A woman called the store and wanted a home call for the very expensive wall covering displayed in that window. I arrived at her home and while walking up to her front door……

50 Shades of Gray

By  Classic Design | 

Now that I have your attention...I really am talking about shades of gray, in a home. Do you realize how many interiors are in shades of gray? As a Home Stager I recommend neutral wall colors and gray is the color of the year. However, even new home owners want gray walls. In their quest to personalize their home, they actually became like everyone else. People's homes are looking "cookie cutter". Where is their personality? Are they afraid to show their true colors? Kitchens seem to have gray walls, granite counter tops, white cabinets and wood floors. As an interior designer,……
