If you're familiar with homify, you know we love white – and especially for small spaces. However, this article shows that we're willing to budge, just a little. Grey is an incredible versatile colour, with tones and hues ranging for days that offer the lightest of options to almost the darkest – and truly everything in between.

For smaller apartment living, we must be strategic and thoughtful about how we approach the space in order to create a modern, visual environment while maintaining the same amount of space. Below we have examples of living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens and dining rooms, all of which vary in size and the amount and starkness of grey wall colour used. Check it out and see if it's something you'd like to try soon!

1. A perfect middle grey

This apartment shows just how versatile grey is. When mixed with other colours of the grey scale and pops of colour with acccessories, you can hardly go wrong. 

2. Add darker grey furnishings

When working wth lighter grey walls, add darker grey accessories like pillows, textiles nad curtains to mix it up!

3. And mixing in some white is great too

White doors and ceilings are best with small grey areas. Also, don't forgeet to paint the crown molding and baseboards in white as well.

4.Light grey walls paired with darker grey cabinets

As grey matches anything – grey kitchen and cabinet pairings are great for a traditional, sophisticated look or even a more traditional look like seen here.

5. Grey walls + white ceiling

This open-concept space shows how grey can easily be used to make your entire home cohesive.

6. A lighter grey to catch the natural light

Add large-scale art work and especially bright art work or works consisting of primary colours like the one seen here. Since grey is such a strong base, it will make almost any colours pop and really speak.

7. Monochromatic bathrooms look larger

Monochromatic colour palettes are a fantastic colour trend. White nad grey bathrooms tend to play an optical illusion and making the space seem larger than ever.

8. Concrete can give you the perfect grey

Concrete can offer both low maintenance for walls and floors and give a perfect tint of grey. It's also incredibly easy to work with – so give it a try!

9. Darker grey for the bedroom – set the mood

Bedrooms are meant to be somber, moody and private. In order to counteract an overabundance of natural light and bright accessories, simply add a dark grey wall.

10. Textured grey anything is lovely
