Blush – the colour on everyone cheeks has definitely transitioned its way into fashion and homes over the past few months. Mixed with moody hues like grey or charcoal it’s a colour that is soft enough to be pretty, but neutral enough to work in homes in place of boring beige or typical taupe. Throw in the latest metal trend – copper – and you have yourself a room that is set to please many. I love how this colour palette can be put together for a nursery or grown up lounge room. It’s modern, chic, young and fun – what more could you want?

This week I’m forgetting the seasons and going with colours that can be used year round. Or in other words: to celebrate the release of “50 Shades of Grey” I thought it would be fun to feature shades of grey for this weeks colour scheme feature. From Modern to Shabby chic, grey is one colour that adapts beautifully to many different settings. Although I may not be featuring 50 different photos with shades of grey, each of these rooms uses a palette of grey in varying shades giving the spaces depth, romance & strength. So, as they say – Mr Grey will see you now…

Grey isn’t typically a spring colour, but today I’m going to show you how it can be one of the best colours for the season – as a backdrop. Dove Grey makes a neutral addition to my spring colour palette due to its subtle, soft hue. Sitting in the middle of the scale between charcoal (winter) and bright whites (summer), dove grey is a beautiful colour choice for making spring colours pop and shine.
Dove grey works well as a transition from winter to spring – paired with neutrals and darker tones, gorgeous winter palettes can easily be created. Lifting this by removing the darker tones and adding in clear, spring colours (such as Blush, Lavender or Mint) in cushions, fresh flowers or other accent pieces, rooms can quickly be transformed to reflect the changing of the seasons.
