​Ideal interiors: Working with light grey paint

• Purchase some paint samples of your favourite light greys and test them on multiple walls in the room you wish to paint.  

• Leave those painted wall samples for at least 24 hours. This will allow you to see how the colours changes with the light during the day. Don’t be scared to paint those samples bigger than the usual 1m square block if you’re struggling to make up your mind 

• When choosing between a cool or warm grey for a room, take into account the flooring, cabinetry, lighting fixtures, wood trim, as well as the bricks’ colours. Your interior elements’ undertones should match with your grey paint’s undertones.  

• When light grey and red is mixed, a variety of moods becomes apparent: historic, nautical, French, etc. Mixing darker greys and red results in a more solid, masculine ambience. And for an opulent and refined style, combine light grey paint with pale yellows.  

• To give your room a classic look, go with grey walls and a white ceiling. Should you feel a bit adventurous, try painting the ceiling in a soft grey shade – one that’s about two or three tints lighter than the wall colour. Go with a darker grey paint for your ceiling if the room is very large. 

From pale greys to more in-your-face colours, let’s see how to Enliven your home with coloured paint.

​Ideal interiors: Working with light grey paint. Great advice Maxwell. Your tips on using natural light, shooting raw and manually controlling the aperture are so very true. I was intimidated for so long to take my camera out of automatic mode, but once I made the switch to manual, I found that, like you suggest, a little tweaking of things like aperture and ISO make such a huge difference.
