When using gray you can select a color like Ellen Kennon Full Spectrum Paints' Gustavian Gray, which will look more blue, green or gray depending on the lighting or you can find a color like Benjamin Moore's Horizon 1478 that doesn't move blue or green.  It just depends on the room and what you are trying to achieve.  I like the elusive quality of full spectrum colors but there are some situations where you might want a more one dimensional color.
