I had a reader who was planning on buying a gray sofa ask "what shades look good with gray", and to answer their question...ALL colors look good with gray if you pick the correct tones. What some people don't realize is that gray is like a neutral color, you can mix it with anything and it'll look good. The color wheels shown above are considered depictions of the "Real Color Wheel" on both the color and gray scales if you're familiar with using a color wheel this may be of some assistance.
I've put together rugs featuring various patterns and prints that include the color gray to show how well it works with different hues. The rugs below include both warm and cool colors mixed with different shades of gray.
I chose rugs as samples because rugs are a quick way to make a big change in a room. Once you change out a rug you can use the other colors included to choose pillows, other fabrics, artwork, and accessories that will go in your space.

I stumbled upon Stephanie J Brown's site and I absolutely LOVE her artwork. It's all so edgy and contemporary, which is right up my alley. Some of the pieces are out of my budget and because she's a UK artist you have remember to convert their currency to USD.
Although you may not be able to purchase her work at least you can be inspired by it, these were some of my favorite pieces below.

Here's John Legend's "Ordinary People" a beautiful black and white video.
Bert en Dennis designed these chairs that are fashioned after puzzle pieces. This design duo is made up of Bert van der Grift and Dennis van der Burch and they create contemporary chairs and seating systems. These chairs have been out for awhile but I thought they were neat and wanted to post them on hue.
First spotted at MoCo Loco
These are also some other great puzzle furniture finds...
Smartistart designed these jigsaw tables (left) they are constructed of solid beech wood and are not pre-assembled so you have the pleasure of putting the "puzzle" together.
The tables are designed and made in the UK but you can click the image for pricing and information.
Check out these puzzle floors! They come in 13 finishes so you're sure to find something that suites you, and they are affordable...yaaay!
Not a fan of the puzzle floor? Well how about this puzzle rug from ona, I think it's hot!
You're in your cart if you like this chair titled "Consumer's Rest" by Frank Scheiner. The chair is fashioned after a wire shopping cart right down to the wheels at the base. Is it practical??? Not for me, but I do think it's art therefore I can appreciate it...what do you think?
