Hello everybody, Bobbi here with a brand new color trend to show you. This one can appear quite mundane on the surface but really is quite gorgeous. It’s a light taupe gray color called ‘Popular Gray’ by Sherwin Williams. They’ve included it in their Colormix color forecast this year and I can see why it’s such a popular color. It works well as the primary color in a design but also as an accent and it’s neutral enough to go with lots of different looks. In fact, I found many inspirational designs featuring ‘Popular Gray’. Let’s have a look.

These ‘Popular Gray’ toned lounge chairs add a touch of softness to a white living room design…
