Layer textures and tonal shades of brushed metal and marble to build a mood of tranquillity.
Grey on grey is a perennially popular influence on fashion and interiors, simultaneously modern and edgy, yet classic. A restful blank slate for you to reinvent with accessories.
Grey is a calm, quiet, neutral colour that can work to reset emotions – an ideal escape from the world. The predominant hue here – Rhine Castle (EC 54) – is from Plascon’s Pause story, part of the 2017 Colour Forecast. Crisp white provides an outstanding contrasting colour to slate shades.
