After seeing how many of you reacted to the WOMAG post i did last week, i’ve kind of had grey on the brain. So it made sense to write up a post featuring more beauteousness of gray in the home and of course – in the wardrobe. I’m sure many of you, like me, have loads of grey items in their wardrobe, right? And in your homes, what status has grey got? We’ve stuck to grey in our bathroom which is a beautiful dark shade – i love it! And we also have grey slate floors and of course, Sarah’s room makeover is the latest grey endeavour we’ve undertaken. So, here are 10 great grey things i love both in and around the home and in my cupboard…
- GREY WALLS
I lose count of the amount of posts i’ve sung about greys virtues as a wall colour. It hides a multitude of sins (especially if walls aren’t plastered perfectly), it comes in so many different shades and makes other colours pop beautifully against it. I can’t recommend it enough. As a gallery wall background, it couldn’t be more perfect.
2. GREY LINEN
As much as all-white bedrooms are beaut – grey linen is better! You know my feelings on this one! Keep it crisp with white sheets and pillow slips or soften things a little with some pretty pink. This linen is by Aussie crowd Abode but if you want proper grey linen, handmade in South Africa, Mungo is your best bet. I also love layering with shades of grey – and for that you need throws and blankets galore.
Whether you go for a contemporary or a more classic shape – you can’t go wrong with a grey couch! Personally i like a darker grey – this L shaped number is from Coricraft – it’s called the Cargo and it’s really well priced and super useful too.
Speaking of seating – the beautiful Anne chair has been on my wishlist since i first saw it. I love everything about it – the curvaceous lines, the deep buttoned details and the timber legs. Love it. Want it. Find it here.
5. GREY SWEATERS
I think i have more than 8 grey jerseys. Skinny ones, loose ones, one that once belonged to The Captain and which shrank in the wash, one from Desray that’s been my go to the entire pregnancy – versatile is an understatement. The one in the top pic here – LOVE!
7. GREY MINNETONKAS
I bought these off Zando a few months ago and i LOVE them!! Beyond comfy, they go with black, with denim and with colours – Charley Bird always asks me why i’m wearing my slippers to work which makes me laugh since it feels like they are slippers, they’re that comfortable.
8. GREY & WHITE TILES
Could i write about my passion for grey and white patterned tiles any more than i have already? Love. Want.
You’d be surprised how hard it is to find small grey cement planters. I’ve been looking for ages – big ones are pretty easy to come across but smaller ones, nope! So…grey planters are definitely on my lust list.
10. GREY RUGS
This beauteous rug from Airloom is so soft underfoot and looks great – no matter the setting. I’ve seen it in kids bedrooms, grown up bedrooms and in living rooms – and i’ve yet to see it in a space where it doesn’t work. It’s alsi a nice size 3mx4m.
What are your go to grey essentials? I’d love to know.
