Going Greige

‘Greige’ – a colour that sits somewhere between grey and beige – has proudly taken up its place in the colour palette of interior designers everywhere. In 2017 it’s making itself known in the nursery space. The perfect gender neutral colour, this warm, neutral complements natural materials and accentuates subtle style perfectly.

There’s the colour itself that’s worth noting, but it’s more than just a colour, it’s a design ethos that’s summed perfectly in products like Cole and Son wallpaper, and from your little one’s perspective, in the natural colours of the organic cotton animals from Mama Owl.

If you fancy trying something new and on-trend in your nursery space, read on for our favourite greige inspiration … greigepsiration? Maybe not. Anyway, read on!

Natural sparkle

We love the way this Cole and Son wallpaper blends on-trend greige with some golden sparkle in this stunning nursery created by @notafrumpymum. What a beautiful backdrop to your little one’s sleep space.

An eye for detail

Self-adhesive, removable wallpaper is one of our favourite developments in the decorating world. Check out this beautiful detailed herringbone wallpaper. It’s bang on the greige trend and thanks to the fact that it’s removable, it’s available even to those of us who aren’t officially supposed to adapt our living spaces because we’re renting.

Naturally greige

Next up, a fine foxy pattern from Scion. The friendly fox pattern is perfect for your little one’s room, just make sure you’ve got plenty of bed time stories about friendly foxes ready to share!

Background basics

The design trend might be to ‘go griege’ throughout the room, but the rules were made to be broken right? We love the accent tones over the greige background in this gender neutral nursery, whether they take the form of colour or the bold inclusion of an animal stencil or two.

Greige for a girl

Last up, this is a gorgeous nursery designed specifically for a girl whose parents were of the ‘no pink!’ school thought. Going greige has helped create a welcoming warm space that keeps things simple and serene, we love it!
