greige /grāZH/ (plural greiges)
1. Blend of grey and beige 2. A color between grey and beige, closely akin to taupe. 3. Blend of gray and beige, perhaps influenced by French grège ‘raw (silk)’.
However you want to define it, I can’t get enough of greige. It may be one of my favorite colors. Is that weird to say?
That’s especially true for decorating, since I’m in my neutral stage and expect to be here a while.
So imagine my happiess to come home last week from an estate sale that I almost didn’t go to with what felt like a whole haul of greige.
Two greige pillows with greige embellishments (greige on greige!).
A wooden lamp.
A concrete planter.
And a basket to carry it all in. (Well, not the concrete planter. I needed help with that.)
The basket is headed for our master bedroom closet to hold sheets and pillowcases. I currently have exactly three sheet sets. One light blue, one white, and one, well, I’ll bet you can guess.
