The Grey Trend | Fab, not drab

The grey trend has been lingering around for a while now, it’s all you seem to see in high end interior design magazines. With colour trends, it can be hard to know where to start – do you use the colour as an accent or a base? Do you go with a light shade or go deep & dark? We’re here to help you debunk the myth that grey is drab and dull. If used in the right way, grey can give your home a truly modern feel.

The easiest way to incorporate grey into your decor is by using windows blinds. Grey blinds can bring that touch of grey to the room and you can even use grey cushions & accessories to tie in the theme with the rest of the room. Our ‘Midas Shadow’ roller blind (left) is ideal for this look as the tw0-toned grey creates a 3-dimentional appearance, rather than just a flat grey.

The perfect room to use the grey trend in is the bathroom as it creates a lovely earthy tone to the decor. Our ‘Toro Pewter’ vertical blind (right) is perfect for this as it has water-resistant properties and a natural finish. To find out more about vertical & roller blinds, click here. Grey blinds create an accent colour for your room, paired with other neutral tones such as white or stone, your rooms won’t appear drab at all.

grey curtains


Another grey way to bring grey into a room without creating a heavy overcast feel is to use curtains. Even simple dress curtains can create enough colour to give your room an elegant feel. Incorporating a pattern into the curtain fabric can lift the room and even compliment your current wallpaper or suite. Our ‘Glamorous’ collection is a multitude of soft greys, blacks and metallic which look stunning together. You can find out more about our curtain fabric collections here.
