If you are struggling to find that perfect color for a particular room, you don’t necessarily have to reach for the beiges, taupes and off-whites. These can be great starting-points, but they tend to be a little boring, especially if your home relies too much on their unassuming neutrality.
Instead, why don’t you go grey?
Grey is a wonderful neutral color that can be combined with almost any color to fabulous effect. Take a look at the image above: the purple pops, because of the dark but not overpowering grey.
Grey also looks fantastic with yellows, greens, blues, reds, oranges, pinks… you get the idea.
As a base, grey is much more powerful than traditional neutrals. It has the intensity of black without the severity. And with grey, you can explore the whole spectrum: light grey with a pastel pink, or dark grey with a glossy canary yellow.
Grey is a monochrome, and you can try experimenting with the options it provides. Different rooms can feature different shades of grey and a complimentary color.
Remember, Grey is the neutral that we are seeing everywhere with our great designers. Will you use grey in your home?
