Trend: Greige Walls

White walls are almost becoming extinct. As the year wears on, more and more of my friends seem to be getting weary of their walls and trying to find a middle ground between the straightforward trend of whites and the color palettes of late, which are filled with pinks, indigos and desaturated (and gorgeous, I might add) greens.

Greige is the perfect example of an in-between. It is not grey but it’s also not beige. That’s why it’s become increasingly popular–and it deserves to be for its diversity and subtleness. Greige is the color that says “I’m grounded, reliable, wholesome but also unexpectedly classy.”. To me, it’s one of the best colors of the year; it matches perfectly with light woods... and let’s be honest, it’s quiet a needed break from whites.

If you, like me, are not quite ready for the bold-color movement, consider this for your end-of-year home refresh.

Niki is in Paris for the launch of the French version of her book Lagom (Le juste √©quilibre) - if you're passing Galeries Lafayette between 4 - 6 pm this Saturday,  pop in for a signed copy and join in with a fun DIY session! I believe she's sharing the adventure over on instagram stories too!

Beautiful images by: Evalotta Sundling and Elin Kickén, with thanks!

  1. More colorful walls might be trending but to say white walls are becoming almost extinct is pretty extreme. That being said, greige is a lovely option.

  2. All those photos/vignettes are of IKEA products, yes? Nice to see IKEA wares, getting a "high-end" photo treatment.

  3. There is a "real" name for this color, called taupe........

  4. They are not the same -- taupe has red undertones which reads differently. griege should have a slight yellow beige undertone - the cooler tones of these two colours have a green and blue undertone, respectively. Taupe is also a French derivative -- from Latin.

  5. So interesting, because in the U.S. everyone is painting over greige walls as quickly as possible! I don't mind them, but I much prefer white or a pretty neutral color like a blue-ish sea salt or butter yellow.

  6. Funny I'm looking to cover up my Griege walls I've had for over 5 years! Every pic I see has white walls and the same white and black rug 1 tropical plant and a macrame wall hanging-come on Instagram! I'm so over it.
