The popularity of 50 Shades of Grey has falsely inflated the reputation and prominence of the color grey, and in the process, many other colors have fallen by the wayside, and not had their day in the sun. So before you throw shade at some of these lesser-known colors, check out these possible sequels to the 50 Shades of Grey series.
