Grey is one of the most romantic colors on the palate, but unfortunately, it has a tendency of being completely overlooks unless one’s designing an industrial style interior. However, it does have some amazing aesthetic qualities that can breathe new life in your homes if used the right way. So today, we’ll be sharing 5 gorgeous ways you can interpret grey color in your interior designs!
1. Variating Tones
The best way you can introduce a grey color scheme in your interior designs is by variating the various hues you’ve chosen. You can consider using the lighter hues of greys as a base and then overlap them with darker ones to create contrast. The living room design in this image does it exceptionally well – the marble undertones are beautifully accentuated by the darker tile trimming, furniture and décor!
2. Pick a style
The second way you can cleverly introduce grey color in your interior designs is by picking a particular design style and then articulating its elements in grey. If you look at this image, you’ll see how the neo-classical wallpaper features light grey tinges while the beautifully upholstered sofa with the complementary chintz give it a great contrasting effect.
3. Texture on texture
Textures are always key to a successful interior design, but it’s how you moderate their visual and tactile form in a space that’s true art. The marble textured table with a pullout open shelf in this image are a great example of how you can balance out the texture on texture format without making it seem overwhelming.
4. If you’re a modernist at heart
If you are a modernist at heart, you’ll definitely enjoy going for a sleek, futuristic grey-toned home. If you’ve never found the right inspiration for this aesthetic, then take a look at this stunning kitchen. All the surfaces – the tiles, the laminates, the backsplash – and the appliances have been carefully picked to create a nice visual balance within the space!
5. Mad for marble
Marble is one of the most beloved textures in the entire world, and Carrera marble with its grey veins and white backdrop is on top of that list. Even if you cannot afford to go for actual marble, you can introduce the marble-effect to articulate your grey theme with the help of inexpensive laminates!
