Think grey is boring? Then think again. Famous French Artist Odilon Redon, who was an avid reader of Hindu mythology, said, ‘The fundamental grey is the soul of all colour’, and there is, in fact, a whole range of greys, from pale dove to dark steel.
Grey can be industrial, romantic or daringly modern: style it as you wish. Shades that are just a few steps from black can be chic and dramatic, and look amazing combined with striking colours such as bold yellow or fuchsia. Greys that are very pale are subtle and sophisticated and work beautifully with natural materials and soft textures. So let’s hear it for grey. It’s not cold; it’s just really, really cool.
