Soft and serene, cocooning and sumptuous; warm greys create a flexible backdrop for stronger more contrasting colours. Light or dark, warm greys work seamlessly in open-plan spaces and exteriors, pairing well with natural materials and pastel accents.
Cooler greys can often open-up a space, making them look even more spacious than usual. This makes them perfect for applying to compact and contemporary spaces to enhance their natural offering.

Transform any space with contrasting greys, to either create a dramatic statement, or complement a monochromatic style.
With the ability to seemingly extend rooms and lift ceilings, grey is an exquisite interior colour. From rich Domino and Teahouse to Tranquil Retreat and Dieskau, it’s easy to add character to your home with our most popular greys.

When whites and beiges simply won’t do, greys and greiges can be the perfect leveller. The right warmth can restore energy and reflect light through a room, inviting texture and pattern.
Achieving that elusive Scandinavian look within your home is only a colour scheme away. Start with a warm, friendly grey like Dieskau paired with a subtle accent companion like Ellen Quarter. This partnership creates a harmonious and calm atmosphere, trimmed with White on White™ for architraves and skirtings to complete the look.
From tin to almost black, grey is a popular exterior colour choice for Australian homes. Lighter shades can invoke a sense of nostalgic warmth while darker shades can exude a more indulgent character.
Capture the Classics
For a beautiful, timeless colour scheme try the subtle shade of Tranquil Retreat with a contrasting roof in Colorbond Monument. To highlight trims or architectural details, add a clean, crisp white such as Vivid White™.
A Pop of Character
A lighter grey colour scheme is soft, relaxed and will work wonders for contemporary exteriors. Terrace White carries a cool, greyish undertone, making it perfect for pairing with Lexicon™. on the trims, windows and details, and Colorbond Shale Grey on the roof.
