Charcoal, this darker neutral is one of the most versatile of the bunch. Pair is with other easy foundation tones or any shade of pastel. The most modern neutral, charcoal gray looks great in dining rooms, living rooms and even nurseries. Here's how to use it best. Charcoal gray may be a neutral, but it's also a statement. It's bolder than its lighter brethren; more modern than its neutral cousins, the beiges; and less dramatic than black. True gray (or achromatic gray) is a mixture of black and white. It has equal values of red, green and blue (RGB), and thus no hue. Off-grays — what we most often use in decorating — have very subtle but important differences in the values of red, green and blue. Cool grays are noticeably blue, green or violet. Warm grays are noticeably pinkish or brown and may have yellow tones.
I am so happy that dressing our windows is back in style. Blinds and shutters serve their purposes, but a room does not look complete without beautiful windows dressing. The padded valances and ruffled swags are gone, but flowing draperies in sumptuous color and texture are here. Restoration Hardware's Belgian Textured Linen Drapes have a deliciously weighty presence due to their texture, and can anchor even the most insignificant windows to transform them into a grand statement. Using a natural fabric with a bold or deep color is a brilliant way to keep your space from feeling too formal. How can you use a deep charcoal paint? Try it as an accent wall, use it on a bookcase or cabinet, or for a dramatic powder room. Dark colors like charcoal gray can be surprisingly versatile if you manage your lighting in the room effectively.
