I did a design consultation recently and the client asked me to suggest some beige colors for her living/dining room. I looked at her as if she'd spoken to me in Russian. I drew a complete blank because, yikes, I rarely use beige in my designs.
It's no secret that my go to neutral for many many years has been grey, and of course I was pleased to see it remains on trend in design forecasts for 2016.
I may have used every shade from all the major paint companies. I like the coolness that most greys evoke. I'm more drawn to greys with a subtle blue underdone but I recently used a grey with a light brown undertone and really loved it.And since I often get emails and DM's on Instragram asking what shade of grey we used for specific projects, I thought it made sense to lay it all out in one post for folks to use as a reference guide whenever they so choose. So here ya go. A peek at some old project faves and the greys that made them special.
In our favorite former bachelor's pad, we used Mink by Sherwin Williams (SW6004)
My entire house is in various shades of grey. In my kitchen, I used Serious Grey by Sherwin Williams.
Grey added some warmth to one of our favorite master bedroom makeovers.
In this condo project at the Ritz Carlton, we used two of our favorite shades: Essential Grey and Greyish
Are you using grey in your projects/home? If so, tell us some of your favorite shades. We'd love to see em in action and of course add them to our grey palette.
