Grey is a true neutral.

While beige, ivory, taupe, navy and brown act as neutrals, grey is the real thing. Somewhere between white and black, pure grey is almost colourless. What that means to your décor plans is that grey pairs wonderfully with just about any colour – brights, pastels, jewel tones and even other neutrals.

Grey loves every style.

Grey shows up in every style – from distressed woods in farmhouse chic to linear sofas that are ultra contemporary. It’s perfect for a shag rug, an edgy metal side chair or an elegant living room sofa. So flexible.

This transitional sofa, shown in grey, comes in a full-sized and condo-sized option.

A mix of greys in this room, brings depth and texture for a classic yet fresh look.

Grey brings other elements to life.

Grey is comfortable being the star of the show, but its neutrality also makes it a perfect backdrop for colour pieces that you want to highlight. Grey walls encourage art to pop; a grey sofa accentuates brighter pillows or throws; grey cupboards or countertops let your dishware and accessories sparkle.

Grey is perfect for foundation pieces.

Grey is a fantastic choice for foundation pieces in your home. While you may change the colour of accent pieces every season, you can count on classic grey for anchor items like sofas, dressers, dinettes sets, headboards and much more. They’ll look great with whatever your changing palette demands! Grey is also a sound choice for flooring, walls, rugs and appliances – if it’s meant to last – grey’s your best bet.

Warm grey versus cold grey.

There’s a great deal of variation within grey. Warmer greys have more yellow, there’s a hint of sunshine. If you still harbour feelings for beige, warm grey is the way to go. Warmer greys create a more traditional, cozy feeling, yet are still on trend. Colder greys have a hint of blue or purple at their essence. They are very popular right now and generate a contemporary chic ambience. Love an all neutral space? Both cool and warm greys look fabulous with white, ivory and black – depending on the vibe you want to create.

Grey’s outstanding versatility and timeless appeal make it a choice you will love for years. And yes, while certain shades of grey will come and go as the ‘in’ hue, our prediction is that grey decor is here to stay!
