In case you haven’t noticed, grey is all the rage at the moment, and it’s easy to see why. A stylish colour rather than one that is deemed dull and cold. From minimal graphic interiors to rustic and country-inspired, grey can work with most styles. Gone are the days when the key neutrals were beige or magnolia, with grey now reigning supreme as the base of choice.
Grey can create a warm scheme as easily as a cool one; it can channel edgy modern and charming country; be calm and soothing or vivid, lively and energetic. The perfect base for the vast majority of colours, grey interiors can form the foundation of countless interior looks and allow you to be as subtle or as bold as you dare. The popularity of grey as a neutral is linked with the rise of another huge interior trend of the moment, Scandinavian style, and these influences have seen a muted palette of grey, white and subtle pastel accents infiltrate every space from living rooms to bathrooms.
As with all the colours used in my colour palette, I gathered up all my favourite grey items from a favoured knitted sweater, a wicker basket to a bunch of lace ribbons and shiny sequins. What they all had in common was they were in a lovely soft warm shade of grey…
The result? A silver grey that has a timeless quality about it, soft and muted. One of the great things about this colour is its versatility. It can feel right at home in more rustic, country kitchens but also feels right at home in modern spaces.
