Fade To Grey

Well the weather has been terrible here in Sydney for the past week and a bit. Grey, grey and more grey and I think there’s more forecast for the weekend.

I was recently reviewing notes I made on my first ever Colour Course and one of the questions was “What colour do you like least of all?” I had written grey because it made me think of shorts worn by school boys.

Interestingly enough, when I was in my final term of my Colour Diploma Course, some three and half years later, grey was one of the colours I predicted was going to make a comeback. (That was back in 2005!) But that grey was more luxurious; a platinum sort of grey.

Grey has certainly made a comeback and is seen in all sorts of places. From cars, to fashion to decor. I like it best paired with a zingy accent colour like lime green, purple or red to take away the boringness. (new word I have invented)

Here in Sydney we seem to like the warm greys, yet further north where the sun is brighter and the weather is warmer, cool greys prevail.

Whatever grey you like, we’ll be seeing plenty of it for the next few days.
