Elegant Greige

Hi, I'm Susi from Arcadian Lighting, which is a wonderful place for interior design inspiration and light fixtures. I am so happy to be asked to guest blog about greige, one of the hottest colors in design right now.

Greige means raw or unfinished, and is an elegant color that mixes grey and beige. I love greige used as a neutral in any room in the home. It is lovely mixed with creams and can be paired with so many colors for an elegant palette. Here are some of my favorite examples of elegant in greige interiors. Hope you enjoy! I had a wonderful time visiting the fabulous Gallery No. Eight!

This living room comes from Greige Design, the beautiful blog dedicated to the glory of greige, and gives us a perfect example of the greyish/beige color. Love the mix of the light greige on the walls and the darker greige on the bookcase.

Greige can range from a very pale shade that is more light beige than grey to a deeper grey that is warmed by darker beige undertones. This greige makes an elegant backdrop for the cream furnishings (and sheep) in this cozy living room. Using this unique wall color helps tie together the rustic, modern design of the overall room.

Pale greige walls allow the dark furnishings and upholstered banquette to stand out in this dining nook. Love the warmth of the greige against the chocolate browns, not to mention the huge drum pendant light over the table!

Greige can be found in natural materials like weathered aged wood and furniture finishes. The greige accents in this elegant cream living room give it a fresh, natural feeling.

Greige as an elegant neutral can work with so many other colors. Darker colors will have a more dramatic feel, like the navy in this elegant living room. Even the small table lamp looks more bold against the soft greige colored wall (the colorful bird next to it doesn't hurt either).

Some greige is more beige, like the wall color in this room. There is a lot of grey in the beige, which transforms the color into elegant greige. It's a very gentle color that helps give this room a cozy, mellow atmosphere.

Greige makes for an elegant color in the kitchen. Choose a pale greige for the cabinetΓ³it's warmer than white and more dramatic. A great look in this kitchen with tall cabinets and stylish lighting fixtures!

Greige looks gorgeous paired with gold and light blue. Both bring out the warmth of the greige velvet in this elegant bedroom. This versatile color complements every design style, whether you are going for a soft, relaxing atmosphere, or something more bold and dramatic.
