Purple with pink polka-dots and green stripes, of course.....
Or maybe red....

Take some samples home and put them against the walls. Gray tends to change the shades of blue and green.

Picking the right color carpet


It is very rare to have a true gray. Most will have an undertone that is only apparent after you choose the wrong color carpet.

Rusty has the answer. Bring home samples.
