Grey is an incredibly versatile colour that can create a warm or cool effect in interiors, depending on whether the shade has a hint of red or yellow to warm it, or by contrast blue. Grey also harmonises well with many colour palettes and allows for the use of colour in a less saturated and intense way. Our responses to colours in design are not just to do with a reaction to one colour, but to the overall effect of how they are used in combination. Adding a mint green to our Bec du Nez woven accessories warms and softens the greys, and using caramel alongside many shades of greys and blues in our Rocquaine design creates a more sophisticated, and warmer, result.
Greys can also be used to very striking effect, such as in our La Coupee design. Monochrome designs which use contrasting shades from black to white can add strong accents to a room. Our new Mockbee & Co. La Coupee lampshades have the added highlight of a copper contrast lining, which further enriches the impact.
