Some people consider grey as a boring colour and only good for clothing and accessorising.But like any other colour, it’s easy to match grey with other colours for a sophisticated look. Combine grey with yellow, silver, white or black and you will love the results.
A grey living room would look both formal and stylish. It’s a tricky colour but it can be very beautiful when combined with other colours. And because grey is not a very dynamic colour, use some focal points in the room. For example, a zebra rug would make a great addition to a grey living room design.
And since grey is nothing but black and white combined, you can also use it with the classical black and white and maybe with some subtle touches of red. Even though grey is a colour with character, it’s still considered neutral so a complementary tone is always okay.
Depending on what you want to do with your bathroom, adding a standard bathroom vanity painted in grey makes it look timeless. Painted in grey and white, the bathroom can be dramatic, elegant and timeless. It will look calm and relaxed. Grey, being a combination of black and white, can be ideal to create a softer effect. Combine charcoal grey with the palest of silvery grey for a variation on the black and white theme.
The beauty of this neutral colour is that it holds a room together, hugging the space with sophistication, allowing colourful accessories to sit solidly rather than float away in a room of pale hues. Incorporate a number of accessories and you will never regret your results. This colour works well for both contemporary and classic living styles, appearing bold and exciting against gloss finishes and clean lines, or fabulously chic around vintage pieces.
