Welcome to Mango Tree Knobs

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!
