I can’t account for my addition. I adore Eileen Gray, my walls are the perfect shimmering universal grey, and when Jasper Johns’ Gray exhibition was at the Art Institute of Chicago I was a repeat visitor. Indeed, there is something a little mysterious about this color– neither black nor white and with the same precise tonality as white (there are a million variations)– it feels comforting in its odd neutrality. Of course, naysayers will warn against it’s foreboding aura– but when paired with bright, expansive shades of yellow gray becomes youthful, fresh and oh so contemporary. – Joanne Molina
