One of the most versatile colours in the spectrum, grey finishes are now cemented as chic staples in any discerning home with the hue a key element across numerous styles and looks.
The versatility of the shade means that each space can take on a unique feel depending on what it’s paired with and the many different shades of grey leads to endless pairing options to ensure no room is ever the same.
Although grey is often associated with industrial style, some tints of the neutral can be equally soft and organic.

The colour grey is one of the trendiest tones used when styling modern and contemporary homes. There are many reasons why, but the most popular among them is that grey is easy to pair with other tones in the spectrum. It goes well with neutral tones like beige and cream, warm tones like mustard and bright red, and cool tones like teal blue and green. Grey is a tone that looks great alone or in combination with other colours, so most designers and renovators frequently use it in their design plans. As such, you’ll find many recent establishments that incorporate the colour grey as the main tint for walls and floors or use it as an accent tone to highlight outstanding furniture, lighting, and decor features.
Designing with Grey
Most of the latest trends in interior styling and design embrace the neutral colour scheme. Hence, you may find that the most popular furniture and decor, and by extension lighting, currently in the market are those in nude, neutral, or muted tones.
As such, grey pendant lights are one of the easiest to style and design in most indoor spaces. The famous Scandinavian and Coastal styles openly welcome grey lighting in either warm or cool hues as contrasts to their cosy appeal without breaking the colour theme. Let’s not forget Industrial-styled and Modern-styled spaces, which practically embrace grey hues in their fundamental colouring techniques.
For pleasing aesthetics, it’s best to pair grey pendant lights with another grey-coloured light. You can choose among wall lights, chandeliers, and lamps to go with your chosen pendant. Install a grey pendant light inside your study and obtain a similar-looking grey desk lamp to complete the look. A series of grey pendant lights in a hallway look swell with alternating close-to-ceiling lights or downlights of the same colour. If you have the budget and don’t want to spend time choosing lights, choose grey pendant lights that are part of a complete lighting collection, with matching table lamp, floor lamp, and wall light. This way, the room will have a holistic charm, taking in both the functional and decorative aspects of lighting.
