Looking for stylish and sophisticated grey bedroom ideas?
Wonderfully versatile, grey can feel both cocooning and fresh at the same time. As a backdrop it can be teamed or accented with bold brights. It also works well with complementary neutrals, such as black or white, and darker or paler tones on the same monochrome spectrum.
In rustic and Scandi schemes, soft greys will feel calming and restful, while in more glamorous or opulent interiors grey can ground a scheme, add drama or provide a beautiful backdrop to make bold colours and textures stand out.
From pale greys and cooler blue-ish hues to smoky tones and moody slate, grey is the go-to neutral for the world's top interior designers and in the last decade has overtaken creams and beige as the fail-safe style option when it comes to modern bedroom ideas.
All of the best paint companies offer palettes of grey, which can veer from those with pink undertones – great for creating a feeling of warmth - to greys with yellow or green undertones, which will feel cooler.
When looking for the best grey paint be aware of the base tones when teaming it with other colours too, as they will work best with the corresponding tones.
Sandwiched comfortably between the white, light and airy bedrooms and dramatic dark bedrooms, grey offers the best of both worlds.
As you'll see in the examples ahead, get your grey right and just the addition of a bold cushion or two will complete your room scheme. If you prefer white walls, there are plenty of ways to introduce grey through beautiful upholstered beds, curtains, throws or painted floorboards. There are plenty of grey bedroom wallpaper ideas too. All of which will make you giddy for grey.
