It's no wonder greige has taken up reign in people's homes, from powder bathrooms to primary bedrooms. This soothing shade not only boasts the best of both worlds–the chicness of gray and the inviting warmth of beige–but also blends in seamlessly to any design style. It's as at-home in a modern farmhouse as it is in a cozy cottage. And for being one color, it can be pushed and pulled a variety of equally stunning directions—a hint of green in one paint, a hint of mauve in another. In the kitchen, a coat of greige paint on the cabinets offers an equally clean and serene alternative to popular all-white kitchens. In a bedroom, greige makes for a grounded, earthy retreat. And it's not just a good choice aesthetically. Experts report greige to be a paint color that can actually make your home sell faster. But with shades this good-looking, it may be hard to leave!
