Reasons To Love Grey

It appears a love, hate affair. The case is, we either can’t get enough of it or that grey hasn’t made its way onto our colour radar at all. All I can say is along with the likes of uber-stylish Kelly Hoppen, I’m obsessed by grey. So here are 10 top reasons why it should be at the forefront of your style palette.



1. The Blank Canvas: Grey makes for the perfect neutral wall, meaning you have a free pass to introduce many other colours & layer multiple patterns into your scheme. With no competition or distractions from your walls and floors, there’s plenty of opportunity to include all your favourite things to create an interesting & stylish space.



2. 50+ Shades: With an endless spectrum of useable greys, make it your tool for achieving the ambience you desire. From smoky & moody to fresh & light, transform your space with the shade that has been used for centuries to retain harmony & balance.



3. Simplicity: Keeping it tonal adds a calm, serenity that just cant go wrong. Achieve an effortlessly cool look by adding soft texture to your greys, layer artwork on walls & cushions on sofas or bed.



4. Drama Queen: Grey might not sound ‘out-there’ in terms of bold colours but go darker to a charcoal grey and you’ll add instant drama.



5. The Perfect Accompaniment: If you are a lover of colour, grey can work for you too. A bright pop of colour will enrich the deep grey hues & enhance your accent tones to stand out, making your colour choice a certain success.



6. Bright & Light: Open up a small space, making it feel larger using pale, tonal shades that won’t look out of place on walls, floors & ceilings.

7. Gorgeous Greige: A term many may not be so familiar with, its the colour that is grey & beige combined. Resulting in the most chic substitute to plain old magnolia, it’s the perfect shade for complimenting a warmer palette of earthy, natural tones.

8. Ultimate Sophistication: Adore the pure classiness that can be achieved when working with grey. As a less than obvious colour choice, grey’s association with design professionals is an easy way for you to boost your home into the league of the super stylish.



9. So On Trend: With trends such as Scandi style natural materials & the industrial look, leading the interiors world, a palette of grey is the perfect compliment to these rich natural tones & metal finishes.

10. Elephants Breath: We applaud Farrow & Ball for loving grey too! Offering paints in the widest & most luxurious range of greys, with so many to choose from we can only assume they ran out of names when they got to Elephants Breath…
