home: trend [ greys ] 

Continuing to be a strong trend for 2017, grey is a familiar safe option for interiors that is flexible and adaptable to your taste and style. It’s a modern neutral colour and especially when the lighter tones are used, it’s easy to compliment and create a homely interior. Although, those braver can make incredible design statements using the darker, richer tones and layering up shades of grey can be very effective. 

Visit Pinterest, and great sites like ApartmentTherapy.com for inspirational guides. 

Importantly your shades have to sit next to each other. With greys coming in warm, cool and varying Pantones, it’s worth having material swatches or paint samples when choosing pieces for a room. 

A good base is to start with a wall colour and the main piece of furniture – like the sofa. 

We love the (pictured above) Made.com Scott sofa (£999) matched with Farrow + Ball Railings almost pitch black grey. To this you can build on with soft furnishings, maybe using highlights of a blush pink or copper. For a clean, less bold approach use lots of white with grey to lighten and soften the look.
