We usually see grey used in modern interiors, so it's a nice change to see how this shade translates in more traditional rooms. Interior designer Nathalie Vingot Mei has a beautiful portfolio that features sophisticated, serene interiors thanks to her restrained color palette of whites and soft greys while playing with light and texture to create a calm ambiance. We've pulled together a few of our favorite photos that show how Mei uses grey in different rooms and styles...

A simple bathroom with modern lines.


This ornate bathroom has a warmer feel to it due to the lighting and the romantic drape of the shower curtain. Absolutely love how the exterior of the bathtub is painted a matching shade of grey!


With an antique bedspread and curvy furniture, this bedroom takes on a more feminine feel, as opposed to the more masculine double bedroom featured above. By limiting the color palette, textures and shapes can dictate the mood of a room.


We like this tip: Painting the bottom 1/4 of a wall grey and the top 3/4 white. It'll give the illusion of added height to a room.
