Gray vs grey: a quick note
Every time I go to write a blog post with gray, I never know whether to spell it gray or grey. So, I officially Googled it and figure out that gray is the American English spelling and grey is the British English spelling. Make sense.
So before we jump into the curtains that go with gray walls ideas, I thought I’d add a quick note here.
For the purposes of these curtains for gray walls (since our audience is primarily American), I’m going to spell these ideas as curtains for gray walls instead of curtains for grey walls, but for all intents and purposes, I mean the same thing as grey walls when I write gray walls.
