    Hmm. depends, alot of colours go well with grey, seriously any colour can go well with grey, just depends on how it is used, Blues make it cool, and technical, red can add a very strong emphasis, Green not a great colour, but can look stunning, Orange stands out fantastically, just stick away from yellow / purple.

    Grey is used alot because it is easy to put anything with it, and images stand out nicely, and due to it being such a flat colour, looks okay over vast spaces, but its used too much.........

    since it's medium gray, it's quite hard to choose a colour because most of the colours doesn't looks nice.

    options to choose:
    black
    yellow
    cyan
    navy(but hard to see since it's blended)
    aliceblue
    skyblue
    white
    whitesmoke

    that's all. All types of blue fits well except 'blue' and 'darkblue'. All types of pink don't fit well.:)

    Indeed, I suggested orange, a warm shade of orange on grey truly stands out brilliantly :D

    not at all. in fact, gray is a pretty easy going color, like black.
