Colour Theory : Grey

I was having a conversation with one of the girls at work today and she said she thinks grey as cold! Interesting. It's most likely a thought many people think. I think the opposite. Those of you who know, know I love Grey - love, love. Yes, it is my favourite colour. Not only does my wardrobe largely consist of grey pieces but of course I painted my bedroom Grey. It can be quite elegant but also very calming for me.

Gray is the color of intellect, knowledge, and wisdom. It is perceived as long-lasting, classic, and often as sleek or refined. It is a color that is dignified, conservative, and carries authority. Gray is controlled and inconspicuous and is considered a color of compromise, perhaps because it sits between the extremes of black and white. Gray is a perfect neutral, which is why designers often use it as a background color. - sensational colour

In my bedroom I used Resene Double Concrete and I love it. Looks great with the crisp white trims in Dulux Lexicon Quarter

  1. Every time I see grey I think of you :-) I think of it as a classic, conservative colour but you are no way conservative ;-)
