Grey all the way!

I know that people have been using grey religiously for the past few years, but I think it’s appropriate now as we have transitioned to autumn so quickly and people want their rooms to feel cosy all of a sudden! (well, I know I do). Nothing says ‘grab a blanket and curl up on the sofa’ like grey.

The right kind of grey, that is. Too much blue in the mix and it feels cold- too much red and it feels brown-y. Who likes brown walls? Not me. The grey that I have used here in my sitting room is Farrow and Ball’s Downpipe. Probably the best known paint colour out there next to Elephant’s breath.

If you would like to know where to buy any of the products in my shoot, please see below.

    Hi Lucy, love your room. Did you paint that metal Ikea chair white or do they sell it in that colour now as I only could only find dark grey?
