GORGEOUS GREYS – How grey has become our new neutral

Barefoot Wool Ashtanga Silk Hero Carpet


Discover more than one hundred shades of grey….


Nothing says cool quite like grey. It has been described as the new black; but it is certainly the new neutral and comes in many shades at Alternative Flooring. A colour online section called Gorgeous Greys will help you select from over 100 shades!


From barely there and mid tone charcoals, patterns in greys are easy to live with. Working as a neutral, greys work wonderfully with highlight colours. Warm greys with a hint of pink is perfect for bedrooms, a white wall balances out a dark grey carpet or layer grey tones to create texture.


What are the new grey shades?
