Dark grey is a color that I absolutely love from open modern rooms to sharp traditional ones. It’s versatile and timeless – although straying into lighter shades of this hue can quickly downgrade a space from designer to builder-grade. The depth and boldness of a charcoal grey is what makes it so special. You can fill a dark grey room with dark pieces for moody layers, or brighter hues for pops of contrast that will bring the space to life. It can cool off a room with blue undertones or add natural richness with green undertones like the dramatic hall above. I used dark grey in my dad’s old Cabbagetown bungalow and it upgraded the living room and entry hall with a sophisticated nuance that almost every visitor commented on. Read on to see these gorgeous grey rooms!
