Grey has actually been the new WHITE for the last few years and can make a space feel grown-up and modern. Think of it as a neutral hue, you can still add in sprinkles of bright accents throughout to bring it to life. A muted grey palette also enhances an urban view and keeps everything feeling airy and fresh.
