Many people will steer clear of decorating with grey for fear of it looking dull, but done correctly, using grey in your interiors or accessories can help a room look extremely stylish and right on trend.
Grey is fast becoming the new white and the go-to shade for neutral decorating. If you’re going for grey on all the walls of a room, try Autentico chalk paint’s ‘French Grey’ shade teamed with cream trim and keep accessories light and bright. Alternatively, a feature wall will allow you to paint with a darker, moodier shade of grey, such as Autentico’s ‘Pigeon Grey’.
It’s important to use a paint such as a chalk paint and not use a gloss otherwise it can start to look too industrial.
Grey walls or a grey feature wall works well with bold accessories in shades of mustard and yellow in particular. Try yellow or mustard cushions or drape brightly coloured throws over a sofa or chair. Accessorise with colourful vases, foot stools or even a rug.
Other colours that are popular to use with grey are blush pinks for a millennial vibe or creams and blues for something light and refreshing. If painting walls isn’t for you then go for deeper greys on kitchen cabinets to help make bright colours and whites stand out.
