Is grey the new black? With all the shades of grey trending in interiors these days it sure makes you wonder. Grey started to appear more prominently in home interiors a few years ago and the trend moved pretty quickly into the mainstream. Because grey is a neutral color it happily co-exists with most other colors on the color wheel. For that reason alone it’s pretty certain that grey won’t be going away anytime soon.
Grey has definitely made its way to the forefront of the flooring category. Whether it’s a warm or cool hue, you’ll find it in sleek contemporary surfaces as well as in rich, rustic planks. Look for light and dark greys as either a primary floor color or as a smoky undertone for rich, earthy browns.
For homeowners looking to make a strong design statement, black and white floors are still popular. Black floors paired with white walls make a clean, contemporary statement while white floors and walls convey a more whimsical look. Try pairing black, white or grey floors with colors like sea grass, cool blue, teal, grey or ivory. Or add interest with metals like silver, pewter and gold.
