How to use light grey in decoration
Light grey is an easy colour for any decorative project. Naturally neutral, the colour blends very well with any decor style, yet can be applied to environments in countless ways. See some suggestions:
Coatings and large surfaces
If you want to highlight and highlight light grey in the environment, then the tip is to apply it on coatings and large surfaces such as floors and ceramic tiles or in the form of wall and ceiling paintings. An even more interesting option is to add light grey to materials that are naturally this colour. And here it becomes clear that the focus is on burnt cement and exposed concrete.
These materials are super trendy at the moment and manage to add both the modernity of the colour and the raw texture that has already become a hallmark of industrial style decoration projects, for example.
Light grey can also add grace to soft and cosy fabrics like carpets and curtains. In this case, the texture of this type of piece helps to “break” any impersonality or coldness that the colour can convey.
If you’re tired of white furniture but don’t feel confident investing in more vibrant and eye-catching colours, then the suggestion is to go for light grey furniture.
This can be the sofa, the TV shelf, the kitchen cabinet or the wardrobe. Do you prefer smaller furniture to use colour? No problem.
For example, light grey can appear on side tables or bedside tables, benches, chairs, and dressers.
Details are also welcome.
Another way to use light grey in decor is with details. Even in smaller pieces, light grey manages to pop and draw attention, especially when it’s well balanced with the other colours in the area.
A good example is light grey lamps and pendants. Decorative items and kitchen utensils are other examples of places where light grey can appear. In the bathroom, on the other hand, light grey can stand out as the colour of the tub, the taps or even the sanitary kit, giving a touch of modernity and style to the furnishings.
