Grey is often an overlooked colour when it comes to home decor, whoever said grey was boring obviously had no sense of style. It is said that a head of grey hair can make someone look refined, so why not apply this to your home? If you have bold colours and striking decor, perhaps a grey rug is just the thing you need to bring the room together and tone down the whole look. A grey rug is unlikely to be a focal point of the room but that’s not to say it can’t be beautifully designed. A grey rug with a white pattern can be neutral enough to go with nearly any colour scheme without dulling it down.
I’m sure a lot of you have read the book 50 Shades of Grey, well why not try different shades of grey in your home, although we can’t promise it will have any effect on your love life! Different shades of grey will have different effects. A dark grey can be almost black, giving your room an edgy, modern look that will be the envy of everyone! A light grey rug can make a room appear spacious, light and airy. Light grey rugs are best used in a room that receives a lot of natural light to give a soft, appealing yet cosy feel. There are rugs available with many shades of grey in great modern patterns that are perfect for bold coloured rooms without much pattern and detail already. Too much pattern can have a negative effect of the look of a room, making it too busy and can cause clashing of designs and colours. Choose a grey rug for your room and instantly add style and sophistication with minimal effort.
