I recently came across this Elle Decor article and I immediately thought to myself- FINALLY my jam getting the recognition it deserves! Let me start by saying I love gray (probably because without it I wouldn’t have a wardrobe), but despite my love for this color I have never really been able to incorporate it in my home.
My homes lack of gray has never been intentional, but largely stems the strong presence of natural textures and reclaimed wood-all of which have beige undertones. Therefore, I have relied strongly on incorporating a color pallet that I have referred to as “greige” aka gray-beige- think warm gray meets attractive (but, not dated) beige.
This earth tone is popping up everywhere and I’m sharing some of my favorite ways to incorporate this color in your own home.
1. Ceilings- I love the unexpected use of this greige paint on the ceiling of this Malibu Farmhouse.
2. Front Doors- The greige front door pops in contrast to this bright white Newport Heights home.
3. Trim- White isn’t your only option when painting trim, switching it up still gives the home a neutral feel while providing visual interest.
4. Kitchens- White is no longer the only neutral in kitchen design.
And tomorrow on the blog I’ll be sharing my favorite greige paints!
