I can't imagine people using that much grey as it makes a space look dreery if there's too much...

Roy...timely post; I am looking at a local story on "Color Trends" for 2010; It is titled "Color Trends-
Back to classic Black"  Have to say, as an Artist trained, Exhibited & Teacher -Black technically in pigment, Black is the combination of ALL colors. Which is exactly why it is so difficult to work with Blacks in paint, tiles, clothing. They never really match & can clash. Personally, I would and have used Black only in small amounts. Greys can have the same problems--but red-toned greys can be very pleasing. Basically, I don't believe that Browns will ever by replaced. Interesting blog. Wonder if they will do a follow-up on the success of their choices.
Hope that you miss this latest storm of White that is moving or swirling across the Nation.

The Psychology of Color

Ever wonder why you find yourself attracted to a certain color? The following are some common colors and personality traits that match:   Red - Almost always optimistic and stimulating, those who prefer red are animated leaders and want to experience everything they can in life.   Yellow - If your favorite color is yellow you have a yearning for the new and modern . . . and you look forward to the future.   Blue - You are capable, trusting and conservative, and have a basic need for a calm, harmonious and tension-free existence.   Pink - Pink is welcomed by the affectionate and concerned individual. Romantic and demure, pink recalls a time of youth, dreams and refinement.   Green - Very intelligent, you understand new ideas. When you start something, you finish it.You are stable, balanced, and tend to be sensitive.   Brown - Should you take comfort in brown. . . this may signify that you are a conscientious, dependable and steady person.
