Yes, you heard it here first. Grey is here to stay – especially when it comes to carpets!
The new neutrals palette of putty, pencil and charcoal has firmly planted its feet as the most in-demand colour in carpet and it shows no signs of waning.
The beauty of greys shades is that they are easy on the eye, don’t steal the scene and make a great base for rooms – on floors, walls, curtains or fabrics – plus they suit both period and contemporary schemes. Grey looks sophisticated in living rooms, makes bedrooms feel soothing and creates a welcoming space in entrances.
If you fancy experimenting with texture, you could opt for a lustrous deep pile or a wool loop texture - to give a different look and especially to contrast against hard flooring. Complement with low height sofas and large light windows for a soft and serene living space.
Keep your grey warm with amber and burnt sienna undertones, or cooler with blush tones and icy blues mixed in. Go monochromatic and cover your entire space in grey hues, and don’t forget that white paintwork and accent colours really ‘pop’ when teamed with grey.
