I’m pretty sure this blog post will not come as a surprise to you. Grey has been the talk of the Interiors town for the past few years and there certainly ain’t no signs of it slowing down any time soon. Grey walls, grey floors, grey couches, grey rugs… When you say it like that is sounds rather bland but we all know when it comes to grey interiors a cloud of grey is a heavenly sight indeed. Believe it or not, it really is just all about the greys!
Grey’s a firm favourite in homes and commercial spaces all over the world (I’ll even admit my home is centred around the G word) but that’s also due to how hassle free it is to design with. If you give yourself a neutral grey background you can easily add colour through furniture and decorative pieces, then if you get bored and want a change what do you do? Simply swap these items to incorporate another colour or shade without the need to splash out on new walls and floors as well as pricey hired help.
Grey is also a very tranquil and comforting tone. It’s not busy and overbearing like some bold colours and patterned wallpapers can be. Like, do you remember that phase in the noughties when everyone had bright orange and red walls? Pardon my French, but helllllll to the no! As I was typing that I remembered I once had a bright yellow room with lime green skirting boards and a bright orange carpet. I know, what a disaster. Anyway, the colour grey has a bad rep for being miserable and depressing when actually it is very soothing and helps to create a relaxed and calming atmosphere.
So, are you joining me on the road to interior grey goodness? Hop onboard guys because once you go grey, there is no other way! Yup, I totally cringed at that too.
