There’s no doubt that Scandinavian design will keep its pole position in the interior style race into 2018! This month we’re interested in how Scandi homes use warm grey to balance cool tones and minimalist decor.
‘For rooms without much natural light, pick a warm shade; its slight golden hue will make a dark space less dreary.’ – Real Simple
White can be prominent on walls in Scandinavian interiors. Using soft greys against wood tones lifts the interior mood, making the room both visually appealing and unquestionably instagram-worthy!
‘Create a relaxing living room with a tightly controlled palette of toning greys and neutrals. Mid-tone grey walls and flooring provide a warm, inviting backdrop for a neutral sofa and rug and delicately patterned cushions.’ Amy Cutmore – Ideal Home
Using grey as a warm tone can allow for other pops of colour to come into play. You won’t feel as if you need to ‘match’ the rug or grey elements – so any ornaments, books or plants will become accents.
We’ve picked five rugs that will make interior greys soft to both the eyes and feet!
1 – ‘Ulle’ large grey rug, £395 – Skandihome
2 – ‘Pappelina Vera’ rug, £450 – Hus and Hem
3 – ‘Bridge’ rug, £593 – Skandium
4 – ‘Sketch‘ Grey rug, £129 – Made
5 – ‘Nomad’ rug, $120/£85 – Ferm Living at Huset
