One of the hottest colours to take the interior design scene by storm this year has been grey. And it’s not hard to see why – grey is a versatile colour that can fit in with a wide range of interior design styles, from modern contemporary to Scandinavian chic. Today, we round up our favourite applications of this winning shade to give you some inspiration for your homes.

Create timeless contemporary interiors with the generous use of different shades of grey to add dimension to the entire space. A medium to dark shade on the walls serves as the anchor for the entire design while a lighter shade (and metallic accents) helps to throw statement furniture pieces into the spotlight.

Definitely one of our all-time favourite colour trends to emerge for this year, the grey and pastel pairing is just so universally appealing (who can say no?) Different from stark grey palettes that are more commonly found in modern homes, the grey and pastel pairing, prevalent in the updated Scandinavian aesthetic, uses lighter shades of greys with equally gentle pastel tones (popular colours include pink, mint and blue) to create a homey and welcoming vibe.

Homeowners who are after a modern luxe aesthetic can look to the up-and-coming trend of dark interiors, which can be achieved by pairing grey with complementing rich, dark tones such as navy blue. If you are wary of weighing down the entire space with overtly dark colours, lighten up the palette by using white on trims, or by selecting light-coloured furniture pieces.

No longer just about a bare-boned stripped down look, the industrial style continues to be updated through the use of metallic details against a grey palette to bring just the right touch of understated luxury to the overall look. You could select furniture pieces that are different shades of the same colour to echo a harmonious palette, or be bold and throw in a bright accent colour to shake things up a little – the possibilities are simply endless.
