Grey seems be to be the hot new colour at the moment, but its not new, and the French and Scandinavians have been using it for centuries. Why? because it such a damn good colour. I love the colour Grey and have been using it for years. I have friends tell me how much they loath Grey, but the reason seems to stem back to their school days, and the catch cry is always the same, I hated my school uniform (that just happened to be the colour Grey). Thank goodness those Grey uniform days are gone, and the new Greys emerging are literally over 1,000 different shades and colours to choose from.
There are Greys so pale they almost look white, and so dark they become black, and every other Grey in between. I find Grey versatile, and calming, Grey won't compete against art work or furnishings when used on the walls, and every other colour and texture pop out with exuberance when combined with Grey. And Grey has been rearing it's not so ugly head on the cat walks at the 2014 fashion weeks, Winter and Spring Collections
So Light Grey, almost White.
The Gap has always used Grey.
The Scandinavians have had a love affair with Grey for centuries, and you would think with their climate they would use more colour, but Greys and Whites have always worked beautifully in the Nordic Home.
