Decorating with the most elegant of neutrals
Crammed with fascinating facts, expert advice and a wealth of essential information, Shades of Grey will guide you through the minefield that is choosing exactly the right shade of grey paint.
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 programme 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?

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
