Gorgeous grey bedroom ideas that prove this neutral is anything but dull.
Sandwiched comfortably between the white, light and airy bedrooms and cosy dark bedrooms, grey offers the best of both worlds. It can feel both cocooning and bright at the same time, can be teamed with bold brights as well as complementary neutrals. In modern rustic and Scandi schemes, soft greys are calming and restful, whereas in more glamorous style interiors it provides the perfect backdrop to make bold colours and textures pop. From silvery grey to cooler blue hues, it’s the go-to colour for the world’s top interior designers and is overtaking creams and beige as the new neutral. From moody dark grey to light pastel grey, the best grey paint shades will make you giddy for grey. Get inspired by these stylish grey bedroom ideas…
