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.

    • 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.
