Home decor ways with grey

You’ve decided on a grey theme for your room: but how do you get the balance right? How much is too much grey and which colours will look best with it?

Gold, grey and blue

These colours work so well together: select your colour palette of max three different colours. A simple way to introduce colours is with cushions and lampshades, or you could consider framed wallpaper as shown here in the Palmetto Collection by Harlequin.

Navys and natural fabrics

If you're starting with a linen grey, then you've got a fabulous choice of colours to work with: stick with the natural fabrics and you can get away with many different shades. Navy and stone look exceptional with grey curtains and other accents. This is from the Clarke & Clarke Vienna collection.

Get bolder with reds, greens and greys

Certain shades will work with each other, even if you can't picture it: this coral red and pale green works with the grey to create a vibrant picture and allows you to be brave with your colour choices. This Palmetto collection from Harlequin has been a popular choice!

Greys and golds

Quite a different look but the greys bring out the gold detail beautifully - this is from Clarke & Clarke Imperiale collection

Contemporary shapes and colours

These zig zag curtains are a fabulous material for a modern living room. They're from the new Metro collection by Prestigious Textiles. Shades of grey are complimented with gold yellow on the curtains and a sunshine yellow table. The dark grey lamps and curtain rods give the whole room a finished outline.

Rich velvets in grey

Sumptuous silken fabrics from James Hare: you can mix the rich colours so effectively and know that what creates the cohesion is the fabric: allowing you to choose from a wide range of colours.
