How to Decorate With Grey
By Space Coast Daily // November 2, 2021
Has it come to that time of year? Does your home need a refresh? As Christmas looms, some of us are getting our homes ready for the festive period. There is nothing worse than an unfinished kitchen, dining room and living room. Who wants loose floorboards and no lighting while you eat your Christmas dinner?
If you’re undecided about what colour to choose, think about going for grey. It’s timeless, classic and highly underrated. It can be paired with almost anything! It particularly looks best with neutral and earthy tones like dark blues, mustard, greens and whites. Let’s dive in and take a look at the different ways you can decorate with grey.
Grey wood floors
Why not put two and two together and install grey solid wood flooring. There are many shades of grey wood you can choose from, for example, white-washed and sandalwood. They both bring a Scandinavian feel to your home with their classy colour and sophisticated look. If you’re willing to splash the cash, install grey parquet flooring. The design and colour work perfectly to achieve a luxury look. Parquet flooring has graced palaces and galleries with its versatile and luxury look.
Earthy colour palette
Earthy tones have been on trend this year with sage greens, navy blues and whites. And we can’t think of better colours to pair grey with! Let’s break it down and see what colours can be used in certain rooms.
Just imagine, you’re sat down on your velvet, mustard-coloured sofa and you’re admiring the dark tone of grey that’s painted on your walls. Next to you is an extravagant blue lampshade. Blue pops with mustard, making you feel at ease and happy with your home. We can’t think of a better way to pair these colours.
The kitchen is the one room where your family come together every year for that special occasion. So, you need to make sure you impress them, especially if you don’t see them all the time! Choose light grey walls, navy kitchen cupboard and sage green accessories for the earthy, neutral look. These colours will modernise your kitchen while looking chic. Switch them around or add brass accents to enhance your kitchen.
If you’re wondering how to redecorate your dining room, then look no further. Choose a table that’s big enough for your household. We would recommend a solid wood table, it’s durable and looks classy if paired with the correct colours.
If you want to make a statement, pair light grey painted walls with one mustard wallpaper feature. This will impress your Friday night dinner guests. Place linen green curtains and navy-blue vases for a natural look.
