There's no doubt about it, grey is the shade of the moment. On-trend restaurants, shops, and homes are covered in it. There's not an interior decorating program that doesn't feature it. However, despite its popularity, it's not quite as simple as buying a pot of grey paint and slapping it on the wall. Make the wrong choice, and a grey room will be cold and dark, even energy-sapping. Get it right, however, and your home will look sophisticated and modern. So how to find the perfect hue? In Shades of Grey, Kate Watson-Smyth explores the current popularity of the shade and consults experts - scientists, paint companies, and interior decorators - who reveal their favorite greys as well as other tricks of the trade. She looks at the wide range of greys on offer and, via a simple process of elimination, will help you track down the shade that works perfectly for you.
