“We have decided to take a closer look at the use of the sophisticated and elegant colour grey in interiors.”
Grey is a colour that is most often associated with industrial environments. If we look at grey, we see a colour that is neither black nor white. Given it is virtually absent of colour, it draws no attention to itself, it keeps its distance, remaining separate. Thinking of industrial environments, they are utilitarian and functional. Industrial environments don’t necessarily need to be seen so grey is a suitable colour.
We may be subconsciously withdrawing and using grey as a means of protection to feel safe and secure.If we are anxious or nervous we may also turn to grey to feel calm, which is quite an extreme way to do it as it can be so draining without any support. So, with additions of white, black, metallics and a natural textures we remain calm but warm! Plus we have a canvas ready for small additions of colour when needed.. usually during spring & summer !!
