When Grey is here to stay!

Posted April 3, 2019 In: /

Grey has been a fan favourite in interiors over recent years, from cool iron to robust concrete, the colours on the grey spectrum most definitely exceed the 50 shades mark! But what is it about grey that makes it so special, is it the versatility of creating both a cool and warm room? Or its ability to provide a platform to set the scene?

Grey is now a staple in interiors, but with colour slowly making a comeback, what can we pair with grey? Here is our top trending grey and colour combos for 2019!

Sunshine shades

Yellow & grey together are simplistically chic. In a contemporary setting such as a loft bedroom or trendy living space it can give off a bright, vivacious look. Pair with textured furnishings such as chunky knit cushions and lush looking throws to tie the window coverings product to the rest of the room.

Lorna McAleer at Style Studio says “Yellow is unapologetic and fierce. Used at the window, it can bring a whole host of positive vibes. Indiana Yellow not only has the colour, it’s got the design too. With Tribal Chic growing in popularity, the Indiana Yellow Roller blind is the epitome of style.”

A boost of blue

Moody blues go well alongside all kinds of greys, from pale to dark. However if you’re looking for a striking appearance, why not pair with concrete or charcoal greys.

Lorna McAleer suggests “If you have chosen to decorate your home with a statement indigo coloured wall and are struggling with what kind of blind will go with this, a patterned grey roller blind is the answer! Try Spectrum Silver, a glossy, metallic fabric with a vertical stripes pattern.”

Is Teal your deal?

Teal’s jewel tone base emits a sense of harmonious tranquility. Yes it’s blue, but it’s blue with bursts of personality!

Lorna McAleer continues “Used in a modern bathroom Teal has the power to create a feeling of zen. Roller blind Tahiti Fern is a luscious foliage border design, and with nature having a positive effect on our physical and mental wellbeing, this style is all about bringing the outdoors in.”

Pretty up with pink

Feminine pink married to masculine grey is a match made in interior heaven! From soft, romantic rose hues to bold and lively fuschias, pink is a fun loving hue that when paired with grey can create unimaginable power.

Interiors expert Lorna McAleer says “Choose a ferocious fuchsia to add a punchy effect to a monochrome bathroom. Style Studio’s Venetian Blush is an excellent product choice, not only due to its bold colouring but also because of its wipe-able nature – great when condensation descends.”
