Grey is pretty much everywhere right now.
From foggy mornings to overcast afternoons, grey really is the colour of November.
But there’s more to grey than thoughts of dire weather conditions. This colour can be sophisticated, subdued and stylish. It’s the hue best suited to early winter and here’s why.
Bright floral prints are seasonally suited to spring and summer. Cooler days call for cooler style. Just think about it: you probably wouldn’t wear a Hawaiian shirt at this time of year. So for November, we’re talking classic tailoring, traditional patterns and refined shades of … grey.
How to make a play for grey in your home
Grey is a neutral. And that’s great news, because it means you can team the colour with almost any other hue in the spectrum.
Typically, you’ll see grey used to paint the walls in a décor that’s accented with sharp reds or yellows. However, there’s no reason you can’t break with the norm and use grey as the pop of colour.
Take a look at our range of grey blinds for inspiration. You might like the wood-effect of our Urban Grey Innovation fauxwood venetian blinds set against a white backdrop.
Another way to go grey is to choose a fully coordinated scheme. Pick three or four shades of grey. Use one for the walls, one for the trim and woodwork and one or two particularly deep tones for the accent. See how our Flock Grey Roman blind fits in with this sort of scheme.
Alternatively in a more classical home, sticking to light greys will produce a subtle effect suited to this interior style.
