Who said that grey was sad and boring? When we talk of the grey colour, we make a reference to a neutral colour in fashion, the new white, a colour that combines perfectly with various colours and materials and creates a very smart result. Thanks to its versatility, it helps us create attractive and uniform spaces. Although the grey colour has a negative feel in western society, whereas in the Orient it is the contrary, it is the symbol of serenity and wisdom.

Grey also creates a tranquil and timeless atmosphere because it is neutral, it brings balance by reaffirming warm colours and toning down cold colours. Combined with pastel colours, it creates romantic spaces and with dark colours, it creates simple and modern ambiences. Its lunar and glacier symbology brings a touch of refinement and mystery. Grey is especially recommended in its various tones in studies, offices, reading areas and living rooms. Combined with neutral tones and with darker tones it creates masculine and elegant ambiences, for bathrooms and dressing rooms for example. In masculine fashion, the best suit for men is a light grey in summer and a moderately dark grey in winter.
