Neautral Gray Color huge palette
First of all, I adore gray for its versatility. After all, gray is a huge palette from white to black. Silver, steel, anthracite, sky-gray, ashy, earthy-gray, dusty and a whole million different gray shades! Considered by many the color of routine and boredom, gray in fact, is a neutral color. Very often you can hear about an inconspicuous person comparing to a gray mouse. But is gray really boring really?
You rarely meet someone who loves gray, and you also rarely find someone who does not tolerate gray. Gray does not detract from the important business, so business people prefer it. At the same time, the gray is friendly and reliable. Usually those who prefer gray in the first place put the mind, but not emotions.
Chosen by people who are afraid to make themselves too loud. Or they want to be inconspicuous to get something (the “gray cardinal”). As the color of neutrality, gray is the perfect background for any other color, for any manipulation or game. It gives power to one who is weak and vulnerable.

Gray Wolf in folklore

Wolf is a symbolic animal, as a creature that could see into the other-world. In some ancient texts we find references to wolves as shape-shifting people. The Irish legend tells of people who, descended from wolves, could still change into that form to prey upon their neighbors’ cattle, while another legend describes a family who turned into wolves every seventh year because of a curse, retaining human language and having prophetic powers. Julius Caesar reported that the Gauls believed themselves descended from wolves.
The wolf’s coat is usually tan or a grizzled gray and black. Some wolves are all black or all white.

Gray Color union of opposites
This color is, in fact, a union of two opposite colors: white and black. On the one hand, gray color means common sense and realism, on the other hand – dullness, boredom, sadness, and depression. As you know, tastes differ, and for someone gray may seem lifeless and useless color.
Meanwhile, gray has a variety of beautiful colors that look great in the interior design. For example, pearl gray, silver, metal, lead, etc. However, gray is the color of gloom and depression. The Billie lines say: “What lies before me? A future that’s stormy, a winter that’s gray and cold.” Besides, it is also the color of indecision and uncertainty.
