Shades of Greys: Decorating with the most elegant of neutrals
There’s no doubt about it, grey is the shade of the moment. Chic restaurants, shops and homes are covered in it. There’s not an interior decorating programme that doesn’t feature it. And forget 50 shades – in fact the human eye can detect more than 500. As can the average paint chart.
“Everyone wants to paint their houses grey at the moment,” says Karen Haller, a colour expert who advises clients on branding and colour psychology. “But it’s actually one of the most difficult colours to get right.” Get it wrong and a room will be cold and dark, possibly even energy-sapping. Get it right, however, and your home will look chic, sophisticated and modern. So how do we go about choosing the perfect hue? In ’Shades of Grey’ Kate Watson-Smyth will help you find exactly the right shade for your space. Full of expert advice and essential information and spiced with a generous dash of humour, this book will guide you through the minefield that is choosing the perfect shade of grey paint.
