Inside ADD LIFE TO WALLS RUGGED ELEGANCE BATHING BEAUTIES THE PERFECT BACKDROP LIGHTER SHADES OF GREY Susan Redman Coco Republic's Oly range of furniture looks spectacular against grey walls. PALETTE-ABLE Decorating secrets from magazine stylist Jason Grant. Is grey the new white? YES! Grey is a great shade. It s my favourite shade for my walls. It s friends with everyone and is far more forgiving that white. But just like white, there are endless shades of grey. Why use grey on walls and floors? Grey provides the perfect backdrop to most colours, which is why it s so commonly used in furniture showrooms as a floor colour. I think it s a great choice --- it s not too daring and can be treated just like a neutral. Details: Jason Grant s Grey Scale Garden palette of greys, with a few brights thrown in is available from Murobond Paints. Call 1800 199 299, or visit murobond.com.au INTERIORS IN designer circles, grey is the new black, or rather the new white, and it's covering all the best walls, floors and windows. It's more sophisti- cated than beige and makes bright colours pop. Plus, depending on the colour's temperature, that is wheth- er you choose a cool blue grey or a warm brown grey, this subtle shade can have an enormous impact on the mood of a room. Peter Fowler is a buyer for Coco Republic, and he and his visual merchandis- ing team know a good grey when they see one. They use grey to show off some of the American labels they carry, such as Oly San Francisco, Ralph Lauren, Andrew Mar- tin and Kelly Hoppen. ''Dark greys and char- coals add drama to a setting without complicating it,'' says Fowler. ''We chose grey for the Coco Republic showrooms, as opposed to a colour, be- cause it creates a contrast in a room, without restricting the pieces we put in it. White and charcoal are a very classic combination.'' He also says to consider how furniture colour and timber or carpeted floors work with grey walls. • FREE Measure & Quote • 10 Years Guarantee Shop 1 14 Cammeray Road, Cammeray Showroom Open 6 Days www.designarobe.com.au BUILDING LIC NO 204289C 9908 5503 2220426 26/6 WARDROBES 2159518 21/2 Website: www.davonne.com.au 165 Eastern Valley Way Middle Cove 1014B Pittwater Rd.
