Warm Gray Palette

01/10/2015



Good morning & happy October!

I still can't stop thinking to myself, when did it stop being June???. This summer flew by all too quickly and I'm still aching over it a bit. But in the spirit of moving on and accepting this chilly weather, I have come up with a palette to warm us up.

Everyone wants a gray home because gray is the new neutral. When clients come to me looking for a gray palette, the first thing I ask them is: is your home modern and sleek? or comfy and cozy. This determines which gray palette to go with, because grays go one of two ways: they either have a warm beige undertone (comfy), or a cold blue (modern). The colours above are ones that I use daily: especially silver fox. This colour has never failed me and is our perfect warm, comfy 'greige'. These tones of taupey grays are rich but still light; neutral but still updated; and warm while still being fresh. I love combining them with charcoal grays, but if you need an accent colour in your space then throw in some warm tones of deep blue or mauve.

Coming soon is before & after photos of a home exterior I've done in these colours. Stay tuned!
