Not quite grey and not quite taupe, these neutrals play to both sides of the color spectrum. It was therefore of course a no-brainer adding them to our Basswood 50mm Venetian Blinds and with our ever-growing Ambient range, we are very excited about these tones. Adding them as a back-drop and to areas of broader or larger spaces allows one to add bold color and accents to a room.
The Versatile Stone Grey
It’s almost a clay hue, which is full of shades you’ll see right outside your window that you’ll want to bring inside. Whether a bold black frame of sleek basswood, or the lighter stone color, these hues are excellent modern takes on window-coverings.
Our new Basswood range includes two new colors, one of which is the warm Stony grey color, and the other is a matte, stone Black. We have taken inspiration not only from Elle Décor and Plascon colors 2017, but we have also drawn inspiration from earthy hues in nature and the flexibility that these colors allow for interiors. Below is out new Stone Basswood.
My favorite inspiration is pairing this warm grey hue with a gold bright tone. The juxtaposition of these colours is not only complimentary but creates an interesting three dimensional feel. Pairing our warm grey tone Basswood Blinds with these gold accents displayed below would make for a highly complimentary interior, whether it be a gold and blue curtain or gold framing on the walls next to your window treatment, this is sure to enhance any space.
Inspiration for Stones – grey mixed with gold
This month of Spring, for pastels – we are pleased to be casting the spotlight on a gorgeous and elegant neutral. The colour inspiration came from Plascon called Ravine (EC 62) from the 2016 Colour Forecast and featured in the latest issue of Spaces Magazine. Ravine is the perfect base colour around which to build a look. It is a contemporary neutral in that it is a great blend of beige and grey. Below is inspiration we drew from fashion- shockingly stylish!
As seen in the above images, grey does well as a background to wood and warmer tones, meaning it does not age in a space, making it versatile. Since our featured hue has a nice earthy quality to it, it adds an organic vibe to a room, especially when paired with natural materials such as wood and stone. This living room features a variety of different textures, but they are tied together well through the use of warm gray neutral hues. As seen in this sitting room design, warm grays play well with a variety of wood tones.
