Habitat plus - Blend


Cross-over greys happily co-mingle.

Grey continues its reign as a popular neutral, but now happily co-mingles with beige and blackened whites as we seek to soften its sometimes austere edge. We love grey’s flexibility as it morphs from stormy green-grey to silvery mist grey, from inky slate grey to stone grey.

Look to the dusted tones of grey blended with blue, green or brown for a timeless look that can be easily accessorised to suit each season.

Step outside your comfort zone to marry grey with accents of brown, clean greens, dusky wine red and cerulean blues.

Top tips
Where once we accented grey with pops of bright colour, now there’s a sophisticated turning to sharp mustards, clean forest greens, tropical teals and burnished bronze.

For a sense of order and calm, use groupings of odd-numbered ornaments and restrict your scheme to three colours.
