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 and¬†tedious. For many of us, grey is usually identified with¬†long and never ending dark winter days where the weather is miserable and in general awful- ¬†hence the expression ‚Äúgrey winter days‚ÄĚ. Everything you are longing for is to see the glint of the sun and slip into your cute summer dress (which feels¬†so far away at¬†that point).¬†For those living in the Northern part of Europe will sympathise with me and understand the¬†agony of a long winter.¬†Lately I have noticed a wide range of shades of grey are being used in architecture,¬†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 or¬†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. Even¬†Vogue¬†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 click¬†here.
Shooting for¬†House of Spring 2017 Spring/Summer lookbook, including a grey atmosphere was an obvious¬†choice, especially with¬†House of Spring¬īs Gigi Nude Brogues.¬†I styled this look with a stunning navy lace top to give it a more romantic feeling and a pair of light blue denim jeans¬†to make the outfit a bit¬†edgy and characteristic, aiming to capture the essence of Parisian lifestyle with a London sense of¬†style.
