Michelle loves grey


Grey isn’t going anywhere …… who knew this new neutral had so many different moods and hues.  Maybe we were all tired of magnolia and ‘whites with a hint of’.  When I tentatively tried out a soft dove grey on my bedroom walls a couple of years ago little did I know it would be the start of an ongoing love affair.


It’s so easy to change the look and feel, fresh white linens and a splash of colour for summer, velvet cushions and fur throws in muted shades for a luxurious, grown up feel in cooler months.

I got these lovely little knobs from the Exclusively Emily range at Mango Tree Knobs for my bedside cabinet.  I am planning a red and white checked duvet cover and knitted red stockings at Christmas for a lovely Scandi feel.



I have ended up with varying shades of grey all over the house, even the bathroom!  Perfect with white towels in summer months I switch to a beautiful rich purple set in the winter.

How can one colour instantly fit so many styles – classic, modern, heritage, minimalist, Scandi you name it – grey fits the bill.  Soothing, calming, a lovely backdrop to relax and unwind in yet compliments bright vibrant colours allowing them to pop without being garish.

Give grey a go!
