Soft and serene, cocooning and sumptuous; warm greys create a flexible backdrop for stronger more contrasting colours. Light or dark, warm greys work seamlessly in open-plan spaces and exteriors, pairing well with natural materials and pastel accents.
Cooler greys can often open-up a space, making them look even more spacious than usual. This makes them perfect for applying to compact and contemporary spaces to enhance their natural offering.
Transform any space with contrasting greys, to either create a dramatic statement, or complement a monochromatic style.
With the ability to seemingly extend rooms and lift ceilings, grey is an exquisite interior colour. From the soft tones of Manorburn and Grey Lynn to the deeper tones of Franz Josef Double and Castlecliff, it’s easy to add character to your home with our most popular greys.

When whites and beiges simply won’t do, greys and greiges can be the perfect option. The right warmth can restore energy and reflect light through a room, inviting texture and pattern. This image features Franz Josef on the wall and Cardrona on the windows and trims.
Achieving that elusive Scandinavian look within your home is only a colour scheme away. Start with a warm greige (brown grey) like Stony River Half paired with a soft white like Southern Alps.
From blue greys to almost black, grey is a popular exterior choice for New Zealand homes. Lighter shades can invoke a sense of classic charm while darker shades can be bold and dramatic.
Capture the Classics
For a beautiful, timeless colour scheme try the subtle shade of Lyttelton with a contrasting roof in Colorsteel® Ironsand. To highlight trims or architectural details, add a clean, crisp white such as Southern Alps.
A Pop of Character
A lighter grey colour scheme is soft, relaxed and will work wonders for contemporary exteriors. Manorburn Double carries a cool, greyish undertone, making it perfect for pairing with Okarito on the trims, windows and details.
