“Fifty Shades of Grey”

Grey is by no means a new color, however, we are seeing a lot more of it in design, patterns, and materials throughout the design process in both fashion and interior decorating.

Adding Shades of Grey to your Home:

A light or dark shade of grey will make for a great accent wall in a living room, kitchen, office, bathroom, and even the nursery. Using the concept of an accent wall select a dominant color on 3 walls and the 4th wall, usually the featured wall with a piece of wall art or furniture use a darker shade of the color.

Other ways to incorporate softer or bolder shades of grey is through accent pieces and accessories in the room and home.

  • Place Settings
  • Throw Pillows
  • Area Rugs
  • Picture/Art Frames
  • Vases
