We used teal and orange highlights with wood and dark grey in the master bedroom.

Great article! Packed with sophisticated colour advice which is perfectly illustrated. Having no innate colour sense, I learned a lot.

Re grey not midcentury....the Sherwin Williams 1950's Suburban modern palette of 16 colors features several grays both warm and cool.Classic French Gray which is darker,Chelsea Grey. Light cool grey, Winchester Grey which is dark but warmer, and Sycamore Tan a vey warm grey. And then there is the classic exterior Mid Century combination...white body ,dark grey trim and orange accent on the door. Our MCM had areas where the original paint still was intact. Grey was definitely a mcm color along with many others .
