HGTV pt 2

Logged out, and then I kept reading.  Logged back in now.

Shades of beige, cream and brown make for a restful, comfortable master bedroom, designed by Linda Woodrum for HGTV's 2007 Dream Home. Creating a monochromatic palette is as easy as picking up paint color swatches at a home improvement store. Simply choose one color you like, then go one value up and down from that color in the spectrum. To prevent monochromatic color from being monotonous, introduce textured fabrics and textiles.

More gray here:
Amy.  When choosing a paint color, there are no limits so experiment with hues from across the spectrum. At first glance, this energetic color may not be for you, but take a simple design lesson from it: Go for it! A small wall is perfect for experimenting and expressing yourself without a big investment of time or money.

Try Taupe and Texture:

Since it's a mix of beige and gray, taupe is a perfect neutral that comes to life surrounded by accessories with interesting textures and reflective surfaces. Bring out its brilliance by determining if your shade is warm (with yellow or red undertones) or cool (contains hints of blue or gray). Pair warm taupes with warm colors and vice versa for a successful design plan.
Afraid to commit an entire room to a certain color? Paint an accent wall, and then tie in the accessories and window treatments so that color is spread throughout a space. This designer trick proves experimenting with paint can be fun and easy.
