Keep your favorite rite neutral feeling fresh
Often dubbed the ‘new neutral’, versatile grey has been a favourite colour in our decorating schemes for more than a decade. But even though it’s no longer hot off the colour press, it doesn’t have to look humdrum in the home. From making the most of striking accent hues to adding a feature wallpaper, these uplifting grey decorating ideas will keep this treasured tone bang up to date.
Style with stone
Echo the tones of natural grey stone. This grey brick feature wall is pulled perfectly into the room thanks to the soft furnishing fabrics that have been colour-matched to organic hues that run through the rock. Balance with a pale floor and add depth with black accents.
Use lots of pale grey tones
Create a perfect night’s sleep with the softest grey to calm a space. Layer up a dove grey bed in cloud coloured greys and whites, and use throws and pillows to add subtle texture and pattern for a cosy and serene finish you’ll want to fall right into.
Choose grey bathroom tiles
Give a grey bathroom spa-worthy splendour with a delicate pattern and character. Set the colour scheme with metro tiles and highlight the brickwork effect with charcoal toned grout. A subtle statement floor will cocoon the room and make the space stimulating rather than sterile.
Blend with black
Black and charcoal hues bring with them an alternative twist when decorating with grey. The bold colour choice is charismatic and dramatic teamed with softer grey highlights, which stand out against the striking dark backdrop.
Let fabrics shimmer
A small grey living room can shimmer and shine when introducing various tactile textiles. What a budget-friendly way to bring in texture; this compact sofa has it all with a display of silvery fringed and soft faux mohair cushions teamed with crushed velvet effect throws.
The great thing about grey is that it goes with anything, so you really can let loose when it comes to adding artwork. This gallery wall featuring a trio of watercolour oysters is soothing and subtle with warm wood frames but a colourful canvas print would look striking in the space too.
