Colorways: Our Favorite Shades of Gray
April can be a depressing month outside, as we curse gray skies in hopes of sunnier spring days. But gray can be a beautiful color, too, so to kick off a new series on Clubhaus the team is sharing their favorite shade of gray from Pantone for some neutral inspiration.
“Warm Gray 7 is incredibly close to a shade of paint I used in one of my previous apartments. It was a shape-shifting gray that seemed to change from purple to brown to gray as the sun moved throughout the day. It’s cozy and calming, and I will definitely use it in my next home.” – Pat, brand manager
“My pick would be Cool Gray 1 because it’s probably the lightest tint of gray in the bunch and I’m always amazed by how effective even the lightest weakest gray can be, especially with web and interface design (not that you would use PMS colors for web design but that’s outside of the point). When I see a subtle gray used in good interface design, it always surprises me just how to close to white it actually is, yet the eye really responds strongly to it in an almost subconscious way.” – Ryan, designer
“This Folkestone Gray (18-3910 TXC) makes me smile. My favorite grays remind me of natural blues, found in stones and near the water. Slate shades take me to the beach, where I am always happy.” – Ben, content strategist
