Soft and serene, cocooning and sumptuous; warm grey is the basis of a contemporary interior, adding a flexible backdrop to add stronger contrasting colours.
Cooler greys can be perceived to make a space look a little more spacious, therefore are perfect for modern open spaces as well as rooms on the smaller side.
Light and dark
Transform any space within the home with contrasting greys, to either create a dramatic statement, or complement a monochromatic style.
Light grey can be the perfect neutral starting point for your interior. Warm or cool, pale grey works seamlessly in open plan living. Always versatile, pair light grey with blonde timber and pastel shades or accent with bold colour or black and white.
From classic pale grey to almost black, grey is a popular exterior colour choice for Australian homes.
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™.
This lighter grey colour scheme is soft and relaxed and will work beautifully for contemporary exteriors, as well as a traditional weatherboard. Terrace White is a cooler white with a greyish undertone, pair it with Lexicon on the trims, windows and details and Colorbond Shale Grey on the roof.
Darker greys have become extremely popular in Australian exteriors. Bring a darker, moodier scheme to life by using Teahouse as the main wall colour. Use Dulux Dieskau for any trims, windows or architectural details and Domino as the roof colour.
Create the perfect schemes for your space incorporating our popular greys.
Greys are the perfect neutral. They can create a sense of luxury and contemporary style. Scheming Timeless Grey with Natural White™ is a beautiful combination. For a tonal variance add Tranquil Retreat to enhance this scheme.
Dieskau is a welcoming grey with a warm undertone and is perfect for any space in the home. Scheme Dieskau with a subtle accent such as, Ellen Quarter, to create a harmonious and calm atmosphere. Use White on White™ for architraves and skirtings to complete this beautiful look.
For an elegant and sophisticated scheme use Silkwort on the main walls and Namadji for an accent wall which is a deeper, moodier grey. These colours display an inviting, subtle warm undertone and Casper White Quarter is the perfect trim colour to compliment this colour scheme.
Focusing on materials and form there is a permanence to structures and a simplicity in finishes.
