rey can be a diicult color to alter but can be incorporated into 

a warm or cool setting depending on the grey that you choose. For 
example, grey with undertones of green, blue, or violet are cool, while 

“greige”, (a combination of taupe and grey), is warmer. Yellow, red, or 

orange undertones would be considered warm as well.

Layering diferent tones of grey creates dimension, texture, and pizzazz 
in any room. From an accent wall to furnishing pieces that contrast 

within the palette, the world is abuzz about grey — it is a vibrantly 

dimensional and beautiful look.

For those who are hesitant to make the commitment to a grey-walled 

environment, build the look with furnishings like AFR’s Burnished 
Collection paired with a Shogun Chair and the silver Parisian Round 

Ottoman on a Rasta Block Rug. For dimension, add some textured 

pillows and throws in varying tones of grey. Finish with metal accents 
in oil rubbed bronzes, pewter and iron or choice of metal inish lamps. 

Do not forget accent pieces for that bare wall. AFR’s Jasmine or 
Jet Accent Chest 
completes a perfect look.

Super Success Tip

Choose your shade of grey by its undertone as that is 

the color that will emerge once it is on a wall or in a 

furniture setting. Examples of cool grey undertones are 

blue, green, or violet. Grey with a taupe undertone 
(“greige”) is warm.

Feeling like you need some color? Decorating is about having fun and 

living in a happy space. With grey you can toss in your favorite colored 

pillows and accessories to create just the right pop.
