We're all going grey!

When it comes to interior design, grey is the new white – and here we explain why grey is so popular for homeowners.

Interior designers and us mere mortals are catching on to the fact that grey can work across many design schemes.  It can be contemporary and cool, it can be soothing and relaxing and it can be lively and energetic – it all depends on the shade of grey you choose for your room.

If you like modern then opt for darker shades that add a hint of drama, if your style is more vintage or classic, blue greys will work well and if you want your room to feel relaxed mid tone greys will create the mood.

If you are using grey on the wall or on one wall - as ever - getting the right accessories is key.  As its getting cooler, texture is important to help create a warm and cozy space.  Don’t be afraid to mix and match – so faux fur cushions, velvet throws and a sheepskin rug, like the one shown will mean you never want to leave the house.

If your walls are plain, then add pattern with accessories.  Something from our Machine woven natural collection would add interest on the floor, like this middle rug, while patterned cushions and curtains would make the whole room come to life.

Grey also works with bold primary colours too.  Place a large grey rug on the floor and add a pop of colour with mustard and orange cushions, an orange lamp and a piece of art featuring the same shades.   Go to our exclusive Ella Claire ‘Naturals’ Collection to find luxurious deep pile grey rugs that will add warmth and subtlety.

If you like a classic style, how about this traditional grey rug from our Bokhara collection.  We think this works well with cream and very pale grey walls and silver grey curtains.  Set the rug on a hard wood floor and keep grey accessories to a minimum so that you let the rug do the talking.

Grey has become so popular with our customers that we have introduced several collections featuring stripes, patterns and plain grey rugs in a variety of tones and shades.  If you’re looking for home accessories in this must have colour, search our grey rugs online.
