2/25 French Shades of Grey

2019

Grey is the color of intellect, knowledge and wisdom. It is perceived as classic, refined, dignified and conservative. Grey is a perfect neutral that lives between the extremes of black and white.

Grey can be a color that's very soothing to the eye and to the touch. Grey fabrics are gorgeous in velvet and linen and gorgeous on any piece of furniture. Grey glazed walls add a sense of warmth because often browns are used with it. Furniture with beautiful grey finishes add so much to a space and quite often, nothing else is needed in shades of grey.

Grey can be just a mist of color, or it can be bold. French Country Grey leans towards the glazes with brown hues. French Country Grey can also be like a mist of barely grey was spritz onto the walls. It's certainly a color that's fun to experiment with different paint techniques on your walls.

French Country grey tends to have a lot of black in the finishes of lights, both in chandeliers and wall sconces. You'll see this especially in antique lighting.
