Grey Is The New Beige

Home Stager with Passion Decor


It's no surprise that one of the more fun aspects of staging and supplying to stagers is buying. Especially after the Vegas Furniture show when all the manufacturers release new product lines. Seeing new trends and choosing products that I think fit the store and my client's taste.  As I look over the showroom floor stocked with new pieces I see an overwhelming trend. Grey. From sofa beds to side chairs grey is popping up in all shades and tones.

It is no wonder why grey becoming more popular. This anticolor is a style camileon. From traditional decor to modern styles grey fits anywhere. Grey also works as a great back drop for any color. Make a space pop with dark grey sofa and bright teal accents. Get a sleek, contemporary look with shades of grey. 

It's interesting to watch fad's come and go. But it is becoming apparent that grey is here to stay.

Emily I get grey for living or working in a space but for staging? I’ll keep an eye out in my markets.

I totally agree with you Emily. Grey is one of those colors that can either compliment or be a stand out piece. It's also, great to let people see colors that they can actually see living with. Great points! I look forward to your next post
