Learn to decorate with one of the most talked about colors in home design and fashion
Even though grey is one of the most talked about colors in the world of home design and fashion—and Shaw’s 2015 color of the year—people still often overlook grey when painting the interior of their houses. For some, it can be seen as bland or too dark. However, grey is one of the most effective neutral shades you can incorporate into your room design, and many designers outside of Shaw agree. It gives off a sophisticated look that goes with any shade of furniture or accessories. There are also several different types of designs you can use with the versatile color. Consider these ideas for a classy vibe that'll impress your guests.
Connect with nature
For rooms that receive ample amounts of natural lighting due to large windows or sky lights, grey with hints of blue or white is just what the space needs. According to HGTV, the combination of these colors keeps the connection of the room with nature alive.
"Just as you see in nature, a balance between warm and cool colors is important for interiors," interior designer Adriana Gerbig told HGTV.
Gerbig suggested that if you're using grey for your bedroom walls, you apply a softer, warmer grey to balance a cooler shade of blue used for bedding. Then add some white throw pillows or other small accessories to emphasize the natural ambiance of the room design.
