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.
