50 Shades of Grey – For Your Home

With the release of the 50 Shades of Grey film , we thought we would take this chance to tell you how the gorgeous shades of grey we have, can work in your home. Grey can cosy up will in the home, to create a cool and calm feeling throughout, but how can you use grey in your home?

Although the rough concrete and gritty zinc may look more suited to an industrial unit, it can work really well in a home. Using grey in the home allows you to experiment with different textures as well as shades of grey. For example, concrete is ideal for a kitchen island as it is versatile and robust.

The living room can look really good as a bare space, stick to shades of greys and if you do decide to throw in a touch of colour stick for monochrome. Something like a b6 blossom or n22 socialite shade of pink or purple, splashed in on a photo frame, window sill or cushion on the sofa. As we mentioned before, a concrete kitchen island works well in the kitchen along with industrial metal around the room. Adding in glassware and ceramics can offset the cool look of the greys and just adds some ‘homeliness’ to the room. Need a notice board where the daily comings and goings can be relayed – how about using blackboard paint and some chalks?

Grey is ideal for the dining room too; stick to minimalistic grey walls with a bleached wood table and chairs then go for grey upholstery and grey natural shades for the rugs. We recommend keeping the palette minimal with help to keep the room looking clean and warm, but clutter‐free.

We have lots of shades of grey that can really work in your home, from a lighter and brighter o1 misty gray or o5 gray down, through to a slightly darker shade of o7 cement or t15 weathered oak. If you’re looking to go for an even darker grey then have a look at o11 lava or p16 battleship, alternatively you can opt for o12 flint gray of o13 charcoal. For decorative paint we have q25 stainless, q27 pewter or even q24 black pearl to add a little edge to the style of the room.
