Forever modern, grey, in all it shades, is having a moment
Shop the Look
Grey is a somewhat amorphous hue. The colour of clouds, concrete, and soft Scandinavian interiors, it’s a shade that’s constantly in flux. Add enough red and you have a hue that borders on melancholy mauve. Err on the side of blue and you’ll discover its deep and stormy undertones.
Such versatility means that it has long been revered by decorators, capable of bridging cool monochrome schemes and soft vintage settings alike. While traditionally utilised as a quiet backdrop hue, modern designers are recently discovering the delights of layering greys to create depth and dimension in contemporary homes. Cool concrete finishes create a rugged industrial appeal, while bluish-greys offer a soothing neutral palette for upholstery and walls. Our 50 Shades of Grey mood board traverses this chromatic spectrum, offering insights into how to use this stylish hue in your own home.
