Decorating with Grey - The Neutral with a Twist that Looks Fabulous

Grey is a highly versatile colour for interior design that goes well with pretty much any hue. It can arouse feelings of balance and refinement and is neutral. You may go all-grey for a sleek, contemporary design, or use it as a backdrop to bring out other colours. Plus, it's timeless!

Granted that the colour grey is frequently linked to a tranquil, cold atmosphere, an all-grey interior design could be viewed as a little outdated. One colour used excessively might become boring, to keep things fresh, consider adding pops of warmer tones like blush, gold, or even some natural textures. It'll add depth and warmth to your space, making it more inviting.

Familiarise yourself with the wide array of grey tones so you can choose a complementary colour that matches the grey you choose. Grey can go from calm to bold pretty quickly so be sure to explore what tones would suit your room, keeping in mind size, light conditions and what vibe you want to achieve.

How to Use Grey in Your Home
