Grey Is The New Neutral

Taupe, tan, khaki these are the hues that typically come to mind when we think of neutrals. Lately another color has crept more and more into their mix…grey.  In shades ranging from light smoke to dark charcoal, grey is quickly becoming the go to neutral. Combined with texture, pattern and other colors, grey can be very warm and welcoming.

For the nursery:

The nursery is a great place to play with grey. It is gender neutral and works exceedingly well with yellow, another great basic.

For the boys:

Paired with navy, green or black, grey is a great neutral for boys. Brighter tones such as Orange can add a pop of color against this neutral backdrop.

For the girls:

Grey can add a delicate and sophisticated touch to a girl’s room. Paired with this palest of pink the grey helps to ground the room.

For the playroom:

Grey in the playroom allows you to introduce a variety of colors without them all competing with each other. It helps to calm the room and allows for brighter tones to live together without screaming, “too busy!”

By Sarah Culbertson  

Once upon a time a fashion plate from Seattle met a childrens retailer from Chicago, and it was love at first sight.  After spending a lot of time together at the mall, they both knew it was a perfect match. So Sarah packed up her fabulous Kate Spade suitcase and headed for the Windy City. Where they lived happily ever after, designing and developing textiles for little kiddos everywhere.
