Sophisticated grey living room mixed with bright yellow pops of colour.

Don’t dismiss surprisingly versatile grey

There’s more to this stylish colour than meets the eye

Think grey is boring? Then think again. Artist Odilon Redon said, ‘The fundamental grey is the soul of all colour’, and there is, in fact, a whole range of greys, from pale dove to dark steel.

Grey can be industrial, romantic or daringly modern: style it as you wish. Shades that are just a few steps from black can be chic and dramatic, and look amazing combined with striking colours such as bold yellow or fuchsia. Greys that are very pale are subtle and sophisticated and work beautifully with natural materials and soft textures. So let’s hear it for grey. It’s not cold; it’s just really, really cool.
