Shades of Grey

Silvered horizons, wisps of wood smoke and Connemara skies… this year’s ‘“neutrals” come in the form of a palette of subtle greys, proving how grey is anything but dull and works as a great anchor for other shades.

It is an intermediate colour between black and white, but carries the charm and charisma of both, it is the unsung neutral that is the perfect platform to allow other colours to shine.

The hue instantly makes any room look classy, and when pale grey is painted on walls and floors it can be used as a calm backdrop instead of white or cream.As with most colours, there are different tones and shades of it and I’m in love with a mushroomy grey (which interior designers fondly call greige!).

Whatever tone you choose, It gives a calm, clean, grown-up feel to a living space, while retaining a coolness that makes it modern. Perfect.
