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.

a perfect gray: horizon gray by Benjamin Moore.'Paint the walls Horizon and the trim white.' Think of a gray suit with a white shirt. It's a nice clean story, and you can go in a hundred different directions with the tie.
