I am a huge fan of grey, it is simply the best neutral and I haven't found a colour or material that it doesn't compliment. I refinish furniture for a living and it has become a standing joke that I will paint anything any colour, as long as it's grey :D In my defence I use a variety of shades from deep slate to 'greige', khaki and dove grey. I find that a) it seems to instantly make a piece look updated and stylish and b) IT SELLS. I am currently experimenting with some other colours ie deep blues, as a change is as good as a rest, but they generally take twice as long to move. Despite all the exceptional interiors we see in magazines and online, the majority of ordinary people are still cautious about design and prefer to inject colour and personality into their home through accessories that can be easily changed.

I am having grey fitted wardrobes installed in my bedroom. I don't want to end up with a dull, grey room. Am thinking of adding a pale plum feature wall maybe, and pale plum cushions and throw. Or is that a bit boring? The walls a pale silvery grey. I can't stand it when bright mustard yellow or bright orange is used. I like softness and warmth (can grey be warm?) and those colours are just too bright. I love colour, so decorating with grey will be a challenge. Anyone have any more ideas. I'm a fan of the country look, not keen on stark modern looks.
