Grey is known for being a versatile design option in terms of how it can contribute to both warm and cool settings in the same exact shade. If your walls or floors have a plain, grey base, it may be a good idea to invest in some patterns for any curtains your purchase in the future in order to add some variety to the room. Solid, grey bases in the background of a room helps bring to light other patterned and colors items in the room.
- Cooler toned and darker colored shades of grey fit a modern aesthetic, while warmer tones evoke a more classic vibe
- Grey mixes well with patterns, so if you have grey walls then it would be smart to use patterns somewhere else in the room
- An aesthetically modern example of a grey wall pattern would be stripes using shades of grey
“Grey can create a warm scheme as easily as a cool one; it can channel edgy modern and charming country; be calm and soothing or vivid, lively and energetic.”
