I thought with the anticipated release of 50 Shades of Grey on Valentine's day, it was very appropriate to talk about bedrooms and the color grey. I'm a huge color lover so it's not often that I show off neutrals. I would usually describe grey as "blah," but these bedrooms decorated in different shades of grey are anything but.

What's so appealing about grey is that it invokes so many moods, depending on the shade you choose. It can be dark & masculine, soft & warm, light & fresh, feminine & modern. It's really so versatile. Here's some inspiration on how you can use grey in your bedroom.
