Grey has always been a fashion-forward hue. No matter what part of the world you live in, you’ll always find designers applying it in its evergreen beauty. The inherently cool texture of greys looks even more amazing in the hot climate of Singapore. It’s 2019 now, and this color is still pretty much topping the trends, but of course the application has totally changed. Here are 5 ways you can use it now:
1. Blending lights and darks starkly
The latest trends in applying greys include blending the dark and light tints. The living room in this image shows an excellent way do exactly that. The media wall with its Carrera textured surface plays a nice rhythmic melody against the black stripes used on its sides. Similarly, the grey toned sofa placed adjacent to it complements the stylistic execution of the accent media wall with simplicity.
2. Plain and textured
Another popular way to use grey tones these days is by mixing plain and textured surfaces. Both matt and high-gloss laminates can be used for both these effects. The textured surfaces are usually lighter in hue while the plain ones are used to emulate some contrast. The media wall in this image shows the perfect execution of this concept and how you can use it in your own home interiors.
3. Camouflaging with a twist
Since grey accent walls are a top trending phenomenon, they’re being used in a totally unconventional capacity these days. Designers are using grey laminates and finishes to camouflage doors within the walls. The geometry of these laminates is pretty simple and coincides nicely with the shape of the door. This image shows the perfect example of this particular technique.
4. As accent pieces
Darker hues of grey can be used to administer accents into plain and neutral-hued interior designs. The catch with this one is that the backdrop has to be completely understated and minimally designed for this technique to work. The dining come kitchen in this image shows an effective example – the grey chairs emulate a nice contrast when paired with the white backdrop of the rest of the space.
5. Getting luxe
Carrera marble is one of the most popular interior design textures in the whole world, and it features beautiful grey veins that provide a luxurious effect in all spaces. You can utilize the infamy of this aesthetic in your grey themed interior designs very easily. The kitchen backsplash in this image is a great example.
