Soft Gray
Soft gray is such a versatile colour. It can come in so many different shades, from charcoal to a light silver. I love seeing it used with soft lavenders, pale blues and metallic tones. I was inspired by Ballard Designs gorgeous gray/blue rug and Garden Suite prints. The soft muted colour works really well with the crystal and aged gold chandelier and rich wood tones of the pedestal table. The paint colour is called "Falling Snow" from Behr, it has a very slight green undertone to it, which brings out this colour in the art and rug also.

I think Ballard has some stunning pieces using this colour right now. I would love add the Gray Haze artwork above a mirrored cabinet and add some kind of metallic lamp to either side of it, to bring out the gold or silver tones.

The Scandicci fabric would also be a great starting point for a room. You could bring out the taupe's, gray, lattes and even mustard colours in a living room for a complimentary palette.

Finally the Vincent rug, teal and gray are one of my top colour combinations. I can imagine the Vincent Rug in a modern setting with a darker gray on the wall.
