FULL TRANSCRIPTION: Why “GREIGE” could be the best neutral color ever!

If you are like me, I said, “What is greige?”.

What if you could take the best of beige and gray and create a neutral that avoids the worst qualities of each?  Greige has been wildly popular for several years (what I did not realize is that the new grays have a bit of beige in them, making them easier to live with).  

It brings the best of both worlds to life, as a NEUTRAL color.  

Greige is simply beige PLUS gray.  

Adding gray to beige creates a richer color---it works in a cool or warm color scheme.  The level of beige to gray in your greige determines whether it is a cool or warm neutral.  

Gray has previously been difficult to work with.  When you get gray right, it is sophisticated, and the lighter shades can be luminous.  

Greige is gray warmed with beige’s warm undertones.  You get the elegance of gray, without the cold blue undertones.  

Now you know about GREIGE!
