Why Has Everything Gone Grey?

Why have decorators seized on the drabbest color in the palette?

Perhaps it’s an ominous sign of society’s mood, we may be subconsciously withdrawing and using grey as a means of protection to feel safe and secure. Or maybe we just love the minimalistic simplicity of an all grey environment?

Whatever the reason, the drabbest color in the wheel is making a giant stir on social media, people have very strong opinions about the usage – or over usage of a color that is a combination of two outcasts of the spectrum. There seems to be limitless variations of grey, from slate, to steel to blue, and all three can be present the same room, creating a monotonous space just begging for a splash of color.

In color psychology, grey represents neutrality and balance. Its color meaning likely comes from being the shade between white and black. However, grey does carry some negative connotations, particularly when it comes to depression and loss. Its absence of color makes it dull and dreary.

When it comes to selling your home, grey is a great neutral paint option, it is easy to decorate around, and it will be sure to show off the more colorful aspects of your home.
