    I would use the words boring, ambiguous, devoid, average, sad/depressing, lacking, businesslike, cold and stark.

    (1)Nondescript-gray is the ULTIMATE NONDESCRIPT color.  It fades into the background.
    (2) Anonymity-gray is the color of anonymity.
    (3) Conservativism-gray is the don't make waves color.  It is the middle of the road color.  Remember the man in the gray flannel suit of the 1950s.
    (4) Monotony-gray is monotonous, safe. If one lives a gray life, one lives a life of monotony, doing repetitious things, & going through the motions of living.
    (5) Conformity-remember the organization/company man in the gray suit.  Gray was the business uniform in the 1950s & 1960s corporation.
    (6) Neutral-gray is THE NEUTRAL color in more ways than one- it is the in-between color, never extreme.  It sits on the fences, never taking a side, neither here nor there.
    (7) Purgatorial- gray isn't the whiteness of heaven nor the blackness of hell.
    (8) Venial-gray is minor & forgivable transgressions.
    (9) Understated- gray is the ULTIMATE UNDERSTATED color.  It is quietly elegant & chic.
    (10) Cool- gray is the acquired cool.
    (11) Sophisticated-gray has a discerning sophistication which is misunderstood by many & is only appreciated by a minute few.
    (12) Smoky- gray has a sensuous quality which VERY FEW can comprehend.
    (13) Middling-gray is well, neither black nor white but a combination thereof.
    (14) Medium- gray is THE MEDIUM neutral.
    (15) Futuristic-gray is the color of the future- it is a combination of minimalism, sophistication, & edginess.
    (16) Minimalist- gray is the color of pure minimalism- it is the NO-NONSENSE color.
    (17) Androgynous-gray is the TRUE ANDROGYNOUS color which appeals to both men & women.
    (18) Stateliness- gray is the color....of EXPERIENCE. It is a color of acquired taste.  One has to have lived to truly appreciate gray.
    (19) Mousy-ugggggggh...........
    (20) Drab- yawn, yawn, yawn.............
    (21) Colorless...........
    (22) Robotic.............

    My opinion would probably be fascinating, confusing, unpleasant, deep, suffocating, space, quiet, cold, and unreachable.
