No one can argue that color doesn’t have meaning. Color is more than accent piece, wall coating, or throw pillow; it has a profound effect on our lives. Color can bring about a variety of emotions, affect our moods, and influence our behaviors.

Grey can be super sleek and modern and is one of my favorite colors when used correctly.
