Grey or Gray? Either Way This Color is a Mood Maker.
Oftentimes overlooked as a “room divider” color that’s dull or overtly neutral, Grey is trending up as a premium fashion design and decorating color. Suddenly, those Grey curtains or roller shades help showcase a host of brighter colors, making bold tones pop and adding depth to subtle colors. To a large degree, using Grey as a thematic color shifts the mood in a room. It infuses a deep richness to cabernet Reds, and helps Purples and Violets impart a more dramatic overall tone. Indeed, it’s much easier to let Grey be your backdrop color compared to a bright Red or Green. And since there are so many unique shades to this color, a room can suddenly become brighter or less so, simply from the changing natural light or other light sources. Grey and White curtains, or light Grey curtains, impart an understated elegance to a room. Black and Grey curtains or shades move the meter closer to a more formal environment. Whether one is looking for a cool or warm room “temperature”, Grey lets you move the needle up or down easily, thanks to its unique ability to work with so many colors. Try layering light Grey curtains or shades with a blackout liner, or accentuate a room with light Grey curtains accented with deep Purple velvet pillows. When you explore all of the possibilities this color offers, you’ll see why it’s been so popular for so long. It’s no wonder that the Grey flannel suit never goes out of style! Grey is the New White. That’s “Code” for: Don’t Skimp.
From walls dressed in Grey, accented with glossy White baseboards, to a modern sofa covered in a Grey polished cotton, flanked with Red pillows, feel free to cover a room with this color. Its neutrality makes it difficult to over use. Based on recent research in the United States and Europe, surveys show Grey is the color most commonly associated with conformity, indifference, and modesty. And although only one percent of respondents chose it as their favorite color, Grey lets you have your way with many rainbow colors that can add excitement and passion to your home’s décor. An avocado Green bedspread with a Grey throw, and Gray and White curtains provide a stunning platform from which to launch additional complementary colors. You can even sparkle things up with Silver by adding shimmering light fixtures, vases, and mirrors. In essence, the more you use Gray as a base layer, the more your tactical splashes of Scarlets, Purples, and dark Greens add to the ambiance. So-called “warm” Greys have less Violet and Blue, whereas “cooler” Greys include these pigments, along with Green. As you might expect, it helps to know which “temperature” you’re looking to create prior to your design project. Blend in With Grey? Hardly. You’re Just Getting Started.
With the multitude of complementary colors it invites, Grey gives you a “license” to transform a room into something special. Introducing Yellow to Grey curtains instantly brightens up an interior space. Blending in contrasting Charcoal Grey highlights, or other Greys, such as Dim Grey and Gunmetal Grey, provide mood-softening layers of color that enhance the subtle character of a room. Avant-garde and charming retro-hip are a cinch when a Silver or Grey-finned ceiling fan is used opposite Cranberry Reds and Mauve. Add a plush, light Grey rug and Grey blackout curtains and suddenly your home theater is dressed for that screening of Gone With The Wind. From Plums to Violets, Royal Blues to Reds, and Yellows to Cucumber Green- yes, Grey matters most when you share it liberally. Get Started Today and Let Grey Start Working for Your Home.
