What shades of grey are there?

Grey is versatile! It can be dark or light, warm or cool, depending on which pigments are added. You can combine it particularly effectively with a colour shade that has the same colour shades.

What shades are there?

Grey comes in different shades:

Cool shades of grey contain more blue pigments, such as Grey with Blue from MissPompadour.

Greenish greys have more green pigments and also a cooler character, such as Grey with Green from MissPompadour.

Warm greys are given a warm undertone by umber and brown pigments, such as MissPompadour Grey with Linen.

A grey can also be light or dark and cover all shades from tinted white to lightened black. The selection of grey colour shades is therefore very extensive.

Effect of grey as wall paint

Depending on how you want the colour to look on your walls, you can choose between warmand cool shades of grey. The warm colour scheme is particularly suitable for a cosy, homely feel. If, on the other hand, you prefer a modern, industrial-chic look, go for the cooler grey.

Which rooms is grey suitable for?

Due to the different orientations of grey tones, the colour is suitable for almost all rooms and furnishings in your home. The colour works particularly well in, for example
  • Kitchen
  • Living room
  • Hallway
  • Bedroom

A grey-painted kitchen provides the perfect basis for accessories in different shades and trend colours. If you choose a cooler tone, such as a blue-grey wall paint, your kitchen will have a modern touch. A warmer tone, such as a light grey wall paint, makes the room cosier
In your living room, you can create a cosy atmosphere with a light, warm grey wall paint. But an accent wall with a dark grey paint can also create a great feeling of living.
In the hallway, a light grey painted wall looks inviting without being too overbearing. Wall paint in grey-green has a similar effect.
And a bedroom with grey, perhaps even dark grey wall paint has a calming effect so that you can relax in the evening. Here, too, painting just one wall - the one behind the bed, for example - a dark grey has a great effect.

Tips for the elegant trend colour

Grey wall paint can really be used anywhere. Paint your walls in shades of grey if you like furniture and decorations in bold colours. This will make all other colours shine! Accessories in different colours also go fantastically well with grey walls and become eye-catchers. So you can redesign your rooms again and again with colourful decorations without much effort
If, on the other hand, you prefer colourful walls, simply paint your furniture grey. This will emphasise your wall paint, with large and bulky furniture receding into the background.
