Colour Lookbook: Go Greige For A Modern, Relaxed & Light Look To Any Room

Discover the perfect neutral that works with any colour scheme from Dulux. Greige combines the best qualities of grey and beige to transform any room in your home.


There’s a new neutral in town: greige. We know what you’re thinking, greige paint doesn’t sound like the most appealing shade, but trust us, you’re going to want to give this timeless neutral your attention.

Here’s more about the greige colour palette and why this colour trend is dominating the decorating world.

So, what is greige?

Greige paint is a combination of beige and grey. Both beautiful and practical, greige brings out the best properties in each colour. In fact, some people are calling greige the perfect neutral because it works well in both warm and cool schemes. It’s the beige undertones that bring warmth and softness, and the grey that adds an elegance and sophistication.

How to use greige paint in your home

Greige is a versatile shade that not only works well on your walls, but as a great alternative to white ceilings, doors and skirting boards. Naturally, greige paint colours act as supporting shades because of their easy-going nature. They pair perfectly with other colour families to give you a wide range of options for your interiors.

You can use greige paint in any room of your home. But here are some ideas to get you started…

Greige in your bedroom

Your bedroom is where you go to retreat and recharge, so you want to choose a greige paint that feels comforting and safe. Why not consider our Colour of the Year 2021, Brave Ground?

It’s a warm, earthy neutral that will create a relaxing space and help soothe you to sleep. Use it as a balanced backdrop to let other shades shine. For example, you can add pops of colour in your pillows and throws to really bring this greige to life.

Greige in your kitchen and dining

Not only can greige paint help to open up a small space like your kitchen or dining area, it can have a calming effect on the busiest place in your home. Plus, the versatility of greige beige paint, like Perfectly Taupe, allows to you to easily shift the mood of the room. With the right lighting you can go from easy-going to elegant at the flick of a switch.

Greige in your living room

Another advantage to using greige paint is that you can layer different shades of greige together. Take this living room as an example, we used a warmer shade like, Spiced Honey, for a feature wall surrounding the fireplace and a cooler Just Walnut for the remaining walls. A greige living room will always look warm and welcoming, when styled with the right furnishings. Greige paint colours work well with natural materials like wood, terracotta and clay.

Greige in your office space

If you’re working from home at the moment or need a study space for the kids, having a dedicated workspace is essential. Painting the entire room or zone in a light greige paint will make the room feel instantly airy and open, helping you to focus and concentrate on the task at hand. For this workstation we used Pebble Shore.
