Shades of Gray

NOVEMBER 11, 2014

In my October 4, 2011 post on floor covering, I suggested avoiding using gray carpet because it looks too much like the concrete floors in most exhibit halls. 

I recently read an article by an exhibit designer who says that he likes gray carpet because it does fit in.  His theory is that another color creates a border that show guests may not want to cross.

He may have a point, and you may agree, but I believe I'll stick with different-is-better when it comes to exhibit design. My theory is: you are now entering my unique space, and I am here to personally welcome you.
