The colour of the moment, grey is everything you want it to be in almost any living space. Compatible with living rooms, kitchens, and bathrooms, it’s only natural that its powers would work beautifully in a bedroom. These forty grey bedrooms show the stretch of grey across a range of themes and colour solutions. Often paired with brighter reds, oranges or purples, its muted hues complement and contrast over a variety of design solutions. Whether for a couple, bachelor or bachelorette, each of these designs delivers to their desired end – pampering, relaxation, or a good night’s sleep – with grey as their hero.
