Okay, so we completely get all the hype and hysteria surrounding the film adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey this Valentine’s Day. There’s no denying it, we too love shades of grey. It’s a tone which is so diverse, flexible and resourceful, not only on paper and on screen, but in residential and commercial spaces as well – it complements all interior décor styles and tastes.
Riding on the buzz, it feels fitting that we take this opportune moment to celebrate all of the wonders of gray, and what better way to pay homage than to showcase some of our favorite Karndean Shades of Gray?
Perfect for a contemporary, elegant space, our White Washed Oak gives you a striking and adaptable backdrop. Ideal if you’re drawn to the white on white vintage look. We absolutely adore the daring clash of grand, antique inspired furniture with modern and minimal décor.
The clean gray wash effect of our Opus Grano plank gives you a fresh, contemporary look. Providing a modern and versatile backdrop to any room design, it pairs perfectly with a splash of color for a vibrant space, or cool monotone stylings for a more understated modernist look. If you find yourself wanting to introduce color, look to room accessories – towels, vases, plant pots, picture frames, even your waste bin, can add a pop of vivid color!
The wider plank of Karndean LooseLay Hudson, will help create a modern look in your space, with its rustic grain details and cool gray tones. The balancing color of this plank works well in spaces that incorporate a crisp palette – with its unique tones, it’s sure to add depth without detracting away from the charm and character of the space.
Indulgent and satisfying, Otono is our classic Italian grey and black marble from our Art Select Stones collection. With a smooth matte finish, its deep grey marbling effect with an understated hint of blue works well in light, bright spaces. It also pairs beautifully with our Fiore marble, creating a stunning checkerboard design. We particularly love the elegant nature of this look for the dining room – a complementary contrast if you have an up-cycled table or refinished chairs.
The subtle mix of charcoal and black tones in our Da Vinci Graphite stone effect tile takes inspiration from the rugged surface finish of sealed slate. If you have gloss finished surfaces – such as kitchen cupboards or gloss varnished chairs and tables – the natural pattern of this stone creates a distinctive contrast. Its bold character is also a perfect match for rooms which feature pops of bright color.
