Neutral colours are always popular, but they’re not always the same – and this year, it’s all about grey.
Giving your home a new lease of life doesn’t always mean adding colour, sometimes, a more understated approach to colour can have even more impact – which is why we love this season’s take on neutrals, which come in every shade of grey.
For the ultimate transformation, paint the walls dark grey, using neutral shades to create contrast. The simplicity of your colour palette means you can experiment with prints and patterns – add one or two standout pieces and give your room an instant focal point.
If you’re after a change that’s not quite so drastic, why not update your furniture? Coupling textured grey fabrics and bright oak furnishings with stark white walls will give you a sophisticated take on this season’s neutrals.
For a much more affordable take on the trend, head to the bedroom. Turn your bed into the focal point of the room with a minimalist decor and a carefully chosen bed spread. Mix shades of grey with black and white, layering up with pillows and cushions to create a look you can change with the seasons.
Of course, you don’t have to go all out to add a little neutral chic into your home. A throw and some cushions will instantly update to your sofa or bed – top tip, choose cushions with changeable covers, so you can update them with the latest trends.
