Gray could look Blue, Purple, or Green--Why?

Trying to find a gray but it looks blue, green or purple on your walls instead? That is because in basic Red-Yellow-Blue (RYB) subtractive color wheel terms, complementary colors make gray. Mixing blue and orange; red and green; or yellow and purple (violet) in equal amounts will make gray. 

These complementary colors also make each individual color look stronger if paired together. 

If your lighting is pulling the 'wrong' gray, you may need to change the hue of the gray to make it perfect in your space.

Contact me for a consulting appointment to help find that 'perfect' gray.
