If gray's the new beige (or brown), you better get started researching the multitudinous colors of gray available at your paint store. Apparently, others perceive grays in a much wider range than I imagined. My grays have tended to be in the gray flannel family, but Better Homes and Gardens has put together a slideshow of the gray spectrum to show you an expansive array of gray. With these options, you won't be limited in your accent colors. There's something for everyone. Who would have thought this was considered gray? Also, the ApartmentTherapy-DC post above shows you many looks you can achieve by tweaking the gray in a room.
