Decorate with grey using Celerie Kemble's design tips and create a home that's anything but neutral.
Design firm ODADA’s exploration of living room as sculpture uses the cohesive effect of a soft grey scale as backdrop to a dramatic experiment. Sweeps of glossy white vinyl lie atop a plywood “over-floor” and rise onto and over the simple plywood furniture forms—coffee table, daybed, and chairs. Beneath them an exposed ebony floor serves up high contrast to highlight the beauty of negative space. Photography by Matthew Millman.The main neutral
Use grey as your main neutral, but add spark by pairing it with colours: Grey plays well with everything from cobalt blue to aqua, flax to taupe, lemon ice to sunflower yellow. Most people choose brown or beige as their predominant neutral, since wood plays a significant role in interior design, but grey is an inspired and exciting alternative, particularly if the rest of your colour palette
tends toward cool—or if you’re inclined to paint your wood white or ebonize it.
