Grey is the new............
How do you spell "grey/gray?" Grey is the British and UK spelling, in use since the AD700s. Gray is the American spelling since around 1825. I have always spelled it "grey" which I suppose reflects my reading habits- I've been steeped in 19th century British literature for years.
Anyhow, I've been seeing a whole lot of grey recently. I guess grey is the new.......... sage? khaki? It's most often blended with pale natural or ivory, or sometimes more dusky naturals like sand or mink, with a pop of something hot and brilliant, like orange or mustard or fuschia.
