Grey is associated with neutrality, balance but can be a bit dull on it’s own. It evokes an image of a cold winter day when you just want to lay in your bed curled between your blankets.

As we move from a light grey colour to darker shades, it becomes more masculine.


White is a colour of positivity, purity and freshness. It is serene, calming and reassuring. It can be cold and isolated when given a negative context. White is the colour of light. It has no hue.

Fun Fact: Snow white is actually a bit of blue mixed in white, so it’s technically off-white!


Greys and whites combined present a sophisticated, chic look which form a great base for any interior style you want. Grey and white bedrooms can be monochromatic or be paired with complimentary colours to add some pizazz.

Contrary to what one expects from these neutrals, grey and white have the ability to create a bold look just as well as a laid back, minimalist bedroom style.

Throw in some black to add dimension and depth to the tones. A four poster white, pewter, glossy ivory or satin black iron bed frame can create a focal point.

A TIP FOR YOU: Pick the right white for your bedroom as not all whites and off whites match all greys like silver. Choose your greys and then match a white.


Blush pink and other pale pinks pair naturally with grey and white. This combination gives your bedroom a gender neutral look. You can use many interior styles with pink, grey and white bedrooms.
