Anne Roselt, Plascon Colour Manager
It’s no secret that I adore colour, but I also appreciate that not all neutrals are dull and boring; they can in fact be friendly, stylish and sophisticated. There are classic neutrals, contemporary neutrals, warm neutrals and cool neutrals – all in different shades and with different appeal. One of the neutrals which is gaining momentum is greige, defined as “a colour between grey and beige, closely akin to taupe; unfinished; not fully processed; neither bleached nor dyed.” (Wikipedia)
I have selected some images with greige paint interiors I found that show how this colour can be used as a gentle canvas which can be dressed up or down depending on your personal style and taste.
Getting comfortable with Greige Paint and Colour
I love the shades of blue in this artwork; it also contains shades of grey which links it beautifully to the colour scheme.
Metallics add a touch of glamour and sophistication to a greige colour scheme. It is becoming an increasingly popular colour in the kitchen, as it is calming, friendly and inviting.
A neutral silver also looks gorgeous with greige and gives this kitchen a modern feel.
Being a neutral, greige paint works well with other neutrals. Use different textures, like metallics, wood, silk and wool together with tints and shades of natural colours to ensure this scheme is not boring.
The colours below are some of Plascon’s greiges from the Inspired Colour System….
