First of all, what is contemporary design?Contemporarymeans ‘at the moment’, which makes this style particularly hard to define. Dating back to the 1970s, this style is unique because it borrows elements from many other aesthetics. In it, you can see nods to modern, traditional, art deco and even futuristic design. Nowadays, it can be defined by neutral colors, clean an curved linesand minimalism.
Usually, when designing a new décor, picking a neutral hue means choosing white and off-whites. This doesn’t have to be a rule! There are several shades of grey – since light grey to a strong grey hue – that are considered neutral as well.
If you’re seeking an elegant and chic color that is versatile for any style décor, grey hues are the answer. “The color gray is a timeless and practical color. Dark, charcoal gray communicates some of the strength and mystery of black. It is a sophisticated color that lack the negativity of the color black. Light grays can carry some of the attributes of the color white”.
The best part of grey hues is that it can be part of any room of your home, whether it is the walls, cabinets or vanities.
