50 Shades of Grey

27/02/2015

No we are not talking about that 50 Shades of Grey, but one of the key colour pallets for interior decorating in 2015. Grey as a colour is often overlooked, many people see it as boring, or too difficult to work with in a space.

Nothing could be further from the truth, grey is such a versatile colour. In fact well known paint companies such as Little Greene have a huge range of grey shades available, not quite 50 but still more than enough to find your perfect colour. By using grey you can create a warm and inviting room in any part of your home.

The other amazing thing about using a grey colour pallet in your home is that it looks great in both masculine and feminine spaces. It’s totally gender neutral as you will see in the examples below:

Grey is often overlooked when it comes to selecting a colour pallet for the bedroom with many people opting for colours that are considered to be warmer. However, as you can see here, the grey shades used, and combined with the right furniture and accessories, can create a great place to relax at the end of the day. This space is fully gender neutral and offers both masculine and feminine aspects – a great room to share.

The bathroom is another area of the home where the use of grey is overlooked, with people favouring whites, creams, and blues. However, here we can see that the addition of grey tiles offers a traditional feel and works well with the white bathroom suite and walls.

Many of the examples above show various shades of grey being used as the primary colour. However, grey also works well when used with other colours, such as yellows or pinks. This is perfect if you are someone who prefers something that stands out a bit more.
