Designers Are Using a Lot of Grey. Here Are Some of Their Thoughts and Tips on Using This Versatile Color in Your Own Kitchen and Home
“Good design is all about balance, so balance dark grey with plenty of light and add hints of color throughout.”
“Dark grey can absorb a lot of light. In a room that doesn’t have much natural light, you have to introduce that brightness another way, either with artificial light or by using plenty of white in the palette.”
“Gold or silver finishes work equally well with grey, for cabinet knobs, pulls and light fixtures. For the most modern result, go with a little of each.”
“The more monochromatic the space, the more important it is to incorporate plenty of variety in finishes of all types. Try to work in a lot of reflection and texture.”
“For a more traditional look lean toward warmer greys, ones with a hint of brown mixed in. Cooler greys tend to look more contemporary.”
“Greenish greys can give a space a clean, natural look.”
“Consider layering three or four different shades of grey in a single space. Choose one darker grey as a grounding element and then a few lighter tones to add interest and a cozy, cohesive effect.”
“Don’t be afraid to add other colors to your palette. To make grey really come alive, mix in other neutrals like taupe or black and white, and colors.”
