It might be the drabbest colour in the palette for some, but why then, has it become one of the most popular colours in today’s modern home?

According to colour psychology, it could be  because grey gives us a sense of belonging, inclusion, and acceptance.  Unfortunately, if used incorrectly, it can wreak havoc in the most sensible of homes.

The perfect gray can be quite elusive, especially when you’re standing in a paint store among a sea of samples—every hue starts looking like a dreary storm cloud.

The one thing to remember when chasing that cloud is that grey has either a blue, green or purple undertone.  Magnify that hidden undertone by a lot (like your wall size) and you can imagine what effect it could have!  When putting together your room, keep the undertone in your grey wall colour in mind when selecting the rest of your furnishings.

Cheerio ’til next time!
