Shades of grey

I just love, love, love the colour grey, it is the perfect neutral to make colour pop. It doesn't have to be cool and crisp (blue undertones), choosing a grey with a yellow or brown base can bring warmth to a room and works perfectly with timber furniture and bright colours such as fuchsia pink, yellow and aqua.

My office walls (and Safari Fusion HQ) are painted a beautiful medium shade of grey, Dulux Doe; during the day with the northern light shining my office is light and bright, whilst in the evening under lighting it has a more moody atmosphere.
