PPG Voice of Color 2014- Gypsum, Spice Cookie, and Black Magic. The perfect escape from reality, this is a theme that balances dark and dramatic designs, mixing delicate and playful forms.

Whites are refreshing and have the ability to open up a space. In contrast, grays and black are advancing and dramatic. Used in tandem, whites, grays, and black and emphasize the structural elements of a room, increasing the architectural impact. As a rule of thumb, clean neutrals play well with every other hue in the spectrum. However, often the most sophisticated and compelling neutral harmonies are created when they are mixed with muted or nuanced neutrals- ones that have a subtle variation of hue and tone. Tip: Pair white, gray, and black with soft neutrals like, stone and sand. Tip: In open living settings, an all-white design scheme helps reduce visual clutter and promotes easier transition between rooms.
