I recently made the decision to embark on some decorating
projects around the house. A few years ago when I purchased my home, neutral
colors were the trend. When I began exploring new color options for my
decorating projects, I was absolutely thrilled with the new color trend:
greige. It is a wonderfully refreshing change from the brown-tone neutrals I
have been living with.
The new color trend: greige will beautifully complement some of the modern decor options I plan to include in the newly designed rooms. I spent some time browsing through magazines trying to decide how to decorate my living room. My decor decision involves a monochromatic theme with over-sized black and white photographs as wall art. With the inclusion of a large plush rug in a warm greige color, I expect the result to be a room that feels warm and moderately sophisticated.
This astounding new color ideally complements stainless steel appliances in a kitchen. It also opens up a multitude of decorating options in a bathroom. It is amazing how well beautiful warm and cool shades of gray can be used in decors that range from cottage casual to modern and contemporary designs.
I have a friend who was wondering how to decorate her nursery. After seeing the versatility of greige, she decided that was the ideal choice. Greige offers her the opportunity to create the soft nursery decor she desires. It also leaves her with many options for adjusting the decor as her baby matures.
