The Greatness of Grey

Oftentimes, fresh paint is all that’s needed to take a room from drab to dreamy, and that has definitely been the case with the resurgence of grey. The popularity of grey paint in homes over the past couple of years, has created a stylish sense of minimalism, drama, or elegance. But if you’ve ever tried to match your grey towels to curtains, you know that grey can be a challenging colour to master. With so many undertones, grey also tends to blur the lines between blue, green, and purple depending on lighting and the items around it.


Choose the right grey the first time. Before you run out to the hardware store, consider these fantastic tips from House Beautiful on picking the perfect grey paint so that your room doesn’t fall flat.

The Decorologist, a phenomenal interior decorator and Psychological Stager also cautions the use of neutral grays in rooms with lots of wood furnishing such a dining rooms, which may cause the whole room to lose its lustre. Make sure you check out her ideas for keeping your future grey or grey-inspired colours looking gorgeous.

Happy painting!
