Hex colour ref:  #95918c

A colourful note: grey is a colour of no colour, lying between black and white, and often being viewed as a symbol of boredom, neutrality and old age; rarely someone’s favourite colour; and rarely an inducer of excitement.

The first recorded use of grey as a color name in English is in AD 700.  Grey is the dominant spelling in European English, whilst gray has been the preferred American spelling since approximately 1825.
It became a Crayola colour in 1934, and apparently it is spelled grey on labels, but gray on the boxes.

  1. I’m a fan of the colour grey….
    Both in fashion field and as for interior design is concerned , I find it very elegant and easy to be associated with much exciting colours…..
    Anyway, thanks for this umpteenth info on colours!!!

    1. Yes. I hadn’t really stopped to think but so am I. My bedroom is grey, with lime green and bright pink! I love it. And my kitchen is grey and purple.

    1. Prepare yourself then!
      I’m in Edinburgh and the sunny blue sky vanished as I landed! But I’m enjoying a nice whisky at the moment😀
      I hope Portugal was wonderful as always.

      1. Wow. I had no idea she was that age! Nor you 😉 Quite a big gap between the two – mind you, my older sister is 16 years older than me!
