Greige - the calming neutral mix of grey and beige - has been the tone of 2023. It might have been all over your Instagram feeds for a good year or so by now, but the warm shade certainly hasn't had its day yet, and we predict it will still be all over our walls in 2024. 

If you're keen to decorate with the color, it's not one that can easily go wrong. That said, choosing the perfect tone can be tricky. Whether you wanted a cooler grey undertone or you want a warmer beige to dominate, you'll need to know what options are out there, and which of the best paint brands you can trust for a professional-looking finish. 

'I love decorating with greige, as it makes the perfect backdrop for any space and enables you to more easily create a neutral color scheme,' explains Adriana Schor, Founder of ICONIQUE Studio. 'Greige tones present the perfect neutral balance canceling out the cold blue undertone of grey, whilst muting some of the warmth that beige brings.' 

For all the greige inspiration you need for your next paint idea, here are our nine favorite greige shades to set you on your way.
