All about the Blues

Blue is a popular color throughout the home this year, in kitchens and bathrooms especially. From elegant taupe to deep navy blues, there are plenty of shades to choose from, and you won’t be amiss with any. Blue comes in such a variety of tones and shades that there are endless possibilities in terms of the look and feel you’re trying to achieve.

Grays Galore

Pale gray has become a hugely popular color over the last year or so, and continues to reign as one of the best bathroom colors. The popularity of pale gray is partly down to its ability to fit beautifully into almost any room or setting, from bathrooms to bedrooms to hallways. It’s a subtle color that won’t offend anyone, without being boring. Calming and gentle, pale gray is an easy choice for anyone that doesn’t want to take too big of a risk, but needs a change.

Greige is another option if pale gray isn’t quite what you’re looking for. Greige = Beige + Gray, a combination of pale gray and beige, this is a warmer option with an almost mauve tinge.

For a more dramatic gray, consider charcoal. Although it is bold and dark, charcoal gray has a warmer tone and can be comforting and elegant among white fixtures.
