My question is when designing one area or one room would it not be wise to mix grays? After listening to one of your podcast explaining how Grays basically have three undertones which are blue, green, and purple. Would you need to stick with one undertone? Does that same rule apply to off whites too? Thanks, Felice M.
I believe we actually discussed this during the show, but Maria’s suggestion was to pick maybe 2 different undertones but no more than that. It’s not necessary to match absolutely everything, but you don’t want to bring in too many undertones or the space will feel chaotic. Another great thing to consider is with building materials and finishes. Maybe choose all the same undertone for those fixed surfaces, then work in a different undertone in your decor. That way you have an equal amount of both, but if you choose to change your color palette, all of the fixed things (countertops, tiles, paint) are consistent.
Hopefully this helps. Thanks for listening!
