It seems that our readers can never get enough of grey interiors. So to kick off this shortened week in this shortened month that is brimful of public holidays, here is some grey interior inspiration to get you thinking about how to work this colour’s influence into your home:
According to colourists, grey is an unemotional colour; it is detached, neutral, impartial and indecisive. It is also the colour of compromise – being neither black nor white – and is the transition between two non-colours.
As grey approaches black, it becomes more dramatic and mysterious. As it approaches silver or white, it becomes more illuminating and lively. (empower-yourself-with-color-psychology.com)
It is a colour that is at once motionless and emotionless, solid and stable… It creates a sense of calm, composure and relief within spaces as it is subdued, quiet and reserved.
For people who lead incredibly stressful and fast-paced lifestyles (don’t we all?!) and who are looking for a reprieve from the sensory over-loaded world we live in, it may just be the perfect solution for sitting rooms, studies and bedrooms as it does not stimulate or excite.

So why not consider welcoming grey into your home in some small way and creating your own sensory sanctuary?
