August 2021 Colour of the Month – Grey

Our colour of the month is Grey. A gentle colour that can transport us to a place of relaxation and restfulness. Grey can simplify a colour scheme and bring an air of calmness to your home. It is a timeless colour and is enjoying a revival in contemporary interior design.

Grey is the perfect colour to use in combination with brighter shots of colour. See the image below showcasing Little Greene colours Grey Teal (226) and Marigold (209). It can recede, allowing the contrast colour to take centre stage. There are an array of cool and warm tones available. Choose your tone dependant on the lighting in your room and the contrasting colours you wish to use.
