Being a big fan of colours, I have a love-hate relationship with grey. I love how colours can change how I look and feel, but it just doesn't have the same effect with grey.
The colour grey is subdued, quiet and reserved and in my opinion, lack of personality. It does not stimulate, energised, rejuvenate or excite.
If you take a quick look online, you will see that grey plays a big role in many Minimalist and Scandinavian interior space. I can understand why this interior design look is having such a major moment in the design world. It is a design movement focus on simplicity and functionalism. This characteristic will results in a clean- cluster free, calming space without being boring and oh, a relief from a chaotic world.
From a colour psychology perspective, grey is the colour of compromise, being neither black nor white, it is the transition between two non-colours. Grey is almost like a colourless colour. Each shade of grey is capable of creating a different feel, look and style of each room, with it's fresh monochromatic vibe.
The closer grey gets to black, the more dramatic and mysterious it becomes. The closer it gets to silver or white, the more bright and lively it becomes.
The colour grey has proven to be popular among the interior design community over the past year or so, despite the controversy that surrounds it. It's not a secret that some people associate the colour to be sad and depressing. Given the fact that it is virtually absent of colour and draws no attention to itself.
Having said that, grey also colours give stark neutrals a warm uplift of a classy and sophisticated look to emphasise the brightness of a space.
Grey goes with everything so it's the perfect contrast to host vibrant colours as discussed on our previous blog.
