TREND IN DE­TAIL TEX­TURED GREY

Ar­naud’s tips for mak­ing this hue work har­mo­niously in your home

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Homes -

Don’t hes­i­tate. Grey might seem in­tim­i­dat­ing, but a darker pal­ette can help to make rooms feel cosy and smart. Pick­ing moody shades in a house has the same ef­fect as if they were added to the back of a paint­ing, en­hanc­ing other colours and ma­te­ri­als, mak­ing them more in­ter­est­ing. Tex­ture is key when it comes to bring­ing life to a dark, grey space. Layer up tac­tile ma­te­ri­als, such as grain-rich woods, rough linens and smooth, tex­tured plas­ter.

Re­mem­ber that some greys are colder,

and oth­ers are warmer. Take time to fig­ure out which tone of grey works best with the nat­u­ral light in your room. Us­ing dark colours through­out a home can make walls seem to dis­ap­pear, and can help to cre­ate a more open-plan feel.
