If jumping head first into thisÂ trend is a terrifying thought, then dip your toe in by starting off with a grey accessory, like a sofa.
Greyâ€™s amazing versatility is what makes it so popular. It can create a warm scheme just as easily as a cool one; it can give you edgy modern and classic country; be calm and soothing or energetic and vibrant.
Each shade of this popular colour is capable of creating a different look and feel to your room, depending on which one you go for it will create a personal touch to your home. Modern looks seem to go for cooler, darker, dramatic charcoals or near-blacks, while classic styles have a natural organic feel with warmer tones.
If you prefer plain upholstery, then patterned wallpaper will be a perfect balance. With a modern house, go for patterns with stripes or geometrics; in a country-style house, you can pretty much get away with any pattern.
One of the main reasons grey is the go-to colour when it comes to interior dÃ©cor is because it goes with just about anything. There doesnâ€™t seem to be a colour that doesnâ€™t mix well with it.Â Bring in pops of colour with accessories such as throws and cushions.
Rich colours work beautifully in the winter months, whereas pastels will give your grey interior a freshen up and take you into spring and summer.
Itâ€™s best to use the shade of grey that resonates with you. There are warm greys (yellow based) and cool greys (blue based), so finding the tone that works for you is important as it can be quite a naturally draining colour.
