Yesterday's color was Cayenne!

Wasn't it a cool color?

Moving on, today's color is a n awesome grey that I just love!!!

And here are the hints :

1. I am a fuel, a filter, a catalyst  and an adsorbent
2. Its time to grill some steaks, or chicken or kebabs... whatever!
3. _ _ A _ _ _ A _

Now on to the color schemes

First the monochromatic scheme

I paired it with Graphite & Black to make this monochromatic scheme

And with bleached white for a complementary one

It is a classic combination that just never fails

For the creative combination I went to make a refreshing one using some Zen Grey and some Bright Turquoise

Doesn't this combination take you directly to the beach?

Using this versatile solid with prints will give you innumerable possibilities... I'll just name a few of my favorites here
