Recently, the colour grey (especially grey in lighter and warmer tones) has become one of my favourite colours in home decoration. I used to associate grey with something boring andÂ tedious. For many of us, grey is usually identified withÂ long and never ending dark winter days where the weather is miserable and in general awful- Â hence the expression â€śgrey winter daysâ€ť. Everything you are longing for is to see the glint of the sun and slip into your cute summer dress (which feelsÂ so far away atÂ that point).Â For those living in the Northern part of Europe will sympathise with me and understand theÂ agony of a long winter.Â Lately I have noticed a wide range of shades of grey are being used in architecture,Â interior design, decoration magazines and blogs – not to mention Pinterest – the modern time inspiration guru! Grey is particularly being combined with white marble, light pink, woody textures orÂ dark colours such as black, juniper and basil green. Additionally, various tones of grey are also being combined with each-other, providing a sophisticated and luxurious atmosphere. EvenÂ VogueÂ have chosen grey to be one of the interior design trends of 2017, if you would like to read more about how to decorate your home with grey clickÂ here.
Shooting forÂ House of Spring 2017 Spring/Summer lookbook, including a grey atmosphere was an obviousÂ choice, especially withÂ House of SpringÂ´s Gigi Nude Brogues.Â I styled this look with a stunning navy lace top to give it a more romantic feeling and a pair of light blue denim jeansÂ to make the outfit a bitÂ edgy and characteristic, aiming to capture the essence of Parisian lifestyle with a London sense ofÂ style.
