I believe very strongly that when it comes to desire, when it comes to attraction, that things are never black and white, things are very much shades of grey.
Gray, a color often associated with motionlessness and dullness, has fast grown in popularity amongst stylists. In fact, Pantone has selected “Sharkskin” as a gray color trend for this season. The cool tone works in any space from the bedroom to the living room and serves as a beautiful framework for many styles of furnishings. Boca do Lobo has picked up some gray design inspiration for luxury interiors. Take a look at these 17 Shades of Gray!
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
Grey was largely classified as the absence color for centuries. It was a hue that was relegated to functional objects like peasant clothing, battle ammunition and painted on basement floors to hide filth. Only with the start of photography and towers did artists really capture the luxury of grey. Today it is complimented by other shades such as silver or bronze and evokes a sophisticated ambiance. Perfect for luxury interiors!
The silent power of grey in interior design is undeniable and is a useful modern design element.
With the warmer months fast approaching, designers looking into cooler tones have used the versatile neutral to create rooms ranging from edgy to serene. Forget white and peach, when it comes to neutrals, grey is your must-use shade.
Gray is frequently used as a background colour, and is the go-to hue for a modern and minimalistic touch. Grey is also often used as an innocuous background element but can be a very powerful design concept on it’s own.
As we look forward to warmer days, expect to see gray in everything.
