Let us paint the
town room – Greige?
Greige is a beautiful combination of grey and beige. People often struggle to choose between warm and cool undertone paints for their house. Greige solves that problem by being a perfect neutral color. It is also a versatile paint color – no wonder it is widely suggested by famous interior designers. The grey brings fineness and style; the beige adds warmth and comfort. So from the master bedroom to the nursery, there is always a perfect shade of Greige for you.
Shade – Brave Ground
Properties – Warm, earthy neutral
The bedroom is the space where you unwind and relax. Brave Ground is just the apt shade to set in a relaxing mood that helps you sleep. You can get experimental with your pillows and throws colors as Brave Ground can complement bright colors beautifully.
Another shade to consider for your bedroom is Cadet Gray. New York City architect John Mochelle says – Cadet Gray is a comforting color.
Kitchen & Dining
Shade – Perfectly Taupe
Properties – mood changer
The kitchen and dining area have two contrast moods. The kitchen is a busy space that needs some calmness. The dining area needs some fineness and sophistication. The versatile perfectly taupe can easily accommodate both moods.
Another shade to consider for your kitchen is Anew Gray. Dallas-based interior designer Tara Polony says – One of my favorite paint colors to use in traditional kitchens with dark wood floors and marble countertops is Anew Gray. It has just enough beige to coordinate with walnut or dark stained floors and just enough gray to pick up the cool veins in natural stone.
Shade – Spiced Honey, Just Walnut
Properties – Warm and welcoming
No doubt a living room should be warm and welcoming. However, it is also the place where you can get creative with your decorative ideas. If your living room has an accent wall, you can go with a warmer shade of Greige for it as spiced honey. You can paint the rest of the walls with a cooler shade like Just Walnut. Greige paint colors work well with wall decors, different furnishings, and other elements in a living room – a fireplace or wooden flooring.
Another shade to consider for your living room is Elephant’s Breath. New York City architect John Mochelle says – The warm beige undertone makes the hue extremely versatile. It can work in many different rooms including the living room. The shade pairs perfectly with other neutrals, especially bright whites. It also works with vibrant shades of green.
Shade – Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore
Properties – Cozy feels
Guest bedrooms are smaller in size than the master bedroom. So you need to pick a shade that makes the room welcoming and cozy for the guest without making it look smaller. Revere Pewter is the apt shade for this as it falls on the yellow side of the color spectrum.
Study / Office Room
Shade – Pebble Shore, Gray shadows by Glidden
Properties – Soft and Warm
If you are using a spare room that is relatively small as your study room, Pebble Shore is the right shade as it can make the room airy and open effortlessly. It also helps in focusing on the work.
If you have a dedicated office space that needs to look formal and lavish, Gray shadows is the right choice. It is a mid-tone Greige paint with brick undertones.
Shade – Edgecomb Gray
Properties – Rich looks
Décor expert Kymberly Redmond suggests using Edgecomb Gray in open spaces because the hue is rich enough to stand up to high ceilings in bright interiors. Also, it will not make large rooms without much sunlight feel unwelcoming. She says her favorite places for this color include hallways, open staircases, and double-height foyers.
