Opinions about Ivory and greyOpinions about Ivory and greyI would like to paint the top half of my wainscotting a colour other than beige,tan  I wanted to go with a grey paint preferably BM.  However  I wanted to know if anyone had some suggestions of what  shade of grey to go with.   I have ivory dining room chairs and bordeaux colour hardwood.  I also have to put curtains up, however cannot choose until i find the right colour grey.  I have seen these two colours used in many articles and I thought it would look quite nice.  Thankyou in advance for any help.
