Grey or beige, Grey & Beige ?

I seem to be having more and more conversations with clients over the ‘Grey versus Beige’ issue. The general consensus appears to be that Grey and beige are not to be mixed. It’s more how you use them together and tones that make it work. We have seen a move away from browns towards grey in 2012, with Grey back drops being a key trend. Grey will continue to feature strongly in 2013. I hope the following images inspire you to introduce Grey in you your home.



A current project I am working on involves decorating the hallway; the existing carpet needs to stay. My client loves Grey but the carpet is beige. Whilst taking the brief the carpet actually has a green grey pattern running through, Grey would be the perfect choice, resulting in a modern twist for the Victorian home. 



If you want to learn more about colour I would recommend taking a look at Maria Kilo. If you would like to discuss you colour choices, book a colour or design consultation please feel free to email me at
