Shades of Grey


by Hannah Cole May 31, 2015

Although we may be about to head into winter, with appropriately darkened skies today, grey is at an all-time high in popularity. Less harsh than black, more natural than red, and far more interesting than white. It's one of those infallible colours that seem to complement every combination thought of.

Even though it may seem such a cool hue, it somehow adds a sense of warmth and cosiness. There's no doubt that the presence of grey also adds an air of elegance and sophistication to any event. The grey hue of bridesmaid dresses, silver/grey foiling on invitations, a hint at the table settings. 

We love it so much we have compiled a whole board of inspiring greys. So many of nature's most wonderful elements feature shades of grey - clouds alone offer such variety and fascination. A little bit of inspiration for your lazy Sunday afternoon.
