A nod from our founder, Nicole, to her beloved hometown. This medium gray has the faintest hint of green undertones and an urban feel that’s inviting and modern.

Excellent color saturation

For a living and dining room that share a vaulted ceiling with a wood center beam at the peak I used three colors, shades of Gray; Shade for the wood beam and other wooden accent trim around the top of an inset-room; Chill for the walls of the living room and dining room; and, Motor City for the walls of the inset-room. Very subtle, very calming and oddly, it seems quieter as well.

Thanks to Clare for its 10 swatch packets to select color combo's for the color challenged like myself.

Gorgeous Grey

I was looking for a grey for my entryway, upper and downstairs hallways. I pretty much ordered all of the grey swatches Clare has. I was looking for a medium toned grey that would brighten up my walls. I went with Motor City. It almost has a tinge of blue but it the perfect neutral grey to balance out other colors in my house (Meet Cute, Dirty Martini and Whipped)
