Going Greige: Tips for Choosing This All-Around Neutral

When you combine the elegance of gray with the earthy qualities of crimson, you get greige. If you call it a warm gray or a trendy beige, then you would be correct in either situation. In nature, greige is the colour of stonework and kinds of wildlife. It’s an elegant neutral that is easy on the eyes. Greige functions well in any room and gets along quite well with any other colour. If you have been on the lookout for the great neutral and you are torn between gray or beige, then you’ll find the best of both worlds by choosing greige.
