What color bedding goes with gray sheets?

Gray is a really adaptable color that works with a variety of shades and the same applies to bedding and sheets. Considering colors that are often paired with grey would be a great way to start your palette. This includes pink, white, green, and blue. Opting for variations of these tones that match the tonal temperature of your gray sheets is an easy way to ensure everything looks cohesive. "I would opt for a crisp white to offset the grey. Alternatively, a steel-blue would also look very chic," says Sydney-based interior designer, Caitlin Parker of Parker Studio. Taking Parker's advice, you can opt for white as a fail-safe option when it comes to matching with gray sheets but don't be afraid to experiment a little, even if its with your choice of shams and pillows.
