Shades of Grey : 7 Rooms in shades of grey

Grey has been on the rise and not just in accessories and wall colour.  Grey is trending in cabinetry, hardwood, tile and more....Grey had a bad rep for while for being cold and impersonal.  But grey has come a long way and it is so versatile, it works with any style of decor and in any room.  Take a look at some of our favourite rooms and ways that you can use grey.

Grey can be warm and still cool at the same time.  These soft grey walls paired with the smokey green velvet accent chairs, oversized art and golden brown accents make this room super sophisticated.

 The idea of grey in a nursery probably turns many away but having done it myself for both my son and daughter, I can tell you from personal experience that grey in a nursery can be incredibly soothing plus it is a perfectly neutral backdrop for nursery classics like pink, green, yellow and blue but also looks great with the more modern hues like orange, aqua, coral and metallics. The wall colour in this nursery is French Grey by Behr it is very soft and light but the right amount of colours on the wall and this shade will transition well as your child grows up counters, grey cabinets and white walls! (I think the first one. What do you think?)

I love a grey kitchen!  I love the versatility with this amazing shade because it is a true cross over in terms of style.  Grey can work in a classic and traditional kitchen, a modern kitchen, contemporary kitchen and a farmhouse kitchen.  It is a great alternative to off white and with the right grey is can still achieve the same warmth.   It also works beautifully when paired with white counter tops or tile, other shades of grey and even touches of black.  It looks great with stainless steel appliances, too!

Grey in a dining room can really add drama.  I love the Kendall Charcoal walls with the wainscotting in this elegant dining room.

Love the chairs and the chandelier. Wainscoting adds interest and texture.

Dark rooms can be intimidating but it's all about balance.  With the dark walls, darker table and the darker art pieces you get the drama but with the soft grey linen chairs, light grey carpet, light white table linens, candles and lamp shades you get a room that has drama, intimacy and elegance but without feeling dark.  You could easily have a more contemporary dining space using the same principles of balancing light and dark

When you layer shades of grey to get luxury just like you see here in this master bedroom.  The linens, the bed frame, the furniture, the flooring and the wall colour all work together to get this rich and sophisticated look
