So, the majority of our house is gray. In fact, every room in the house is grey with the exception of a half bathroom, the breakfast nook, and our master bedroom closets. That being said, I LOVE the gray. It’s modern and contemporary while still being classic. I do also love having brightly colored walls (in my old home I had a bright blue bedroom & a bright green closet), but I agreed to compromise with my husband and use bright colors as accents instead.
Our foyer is a dark gray (Anonymous by Behr), and it definitely needed something to brighten it up. Originally we had thought of including a colored rug in the entrance way, but then we found a dark gray rug from Home Depot for $20 and we just couldn’t pass up that awesome deal (come on, we’re newly weds!). There also isn’t a lot of wall space in the area to hang colored artwork or frames, so I decided to buy a coat rack & paint it a bright yellow (we already have some other yellow accents throughout the house leftover from our wedding).
The coat rack I bought was from Amazon, and it received pretty decent reviews. Plus, it was a great price! You can see it here.
