Homburg grey, the contemporary blend of grey and green is everything a home decor needs - sophistication, sensuality and sublimity and currently, homsburg grey is the colour of the month hence, we are going in total awe of it. Taking after the name of the town in Germany, this colour unveils the other side of nature that finds peace in the cold tones of its greens.
In an interior, this colour is found appealing, both in whole and in part, making it a fine choice for everything from furniture and accessories to wall and floor finishes. In an interview with HT Lifestyle, Interior Designer Punam Kalra, Creative Director of I'm the Centre for Applied Arts, shared, “As a colour that is deep and stimulating, homburg grey creates a mood on its own. It can work effortlessly in monochrome themes where it can complement botanical wallpaper patterns, organic fabric prints, honed slate tiles and more that are naturally connected to the colour family. The colour also creates a well-composed minimalist statement when chosen in matte textures and seamless finishes that become a great backdrop for metallic accents, vintage artworks, dramatic wall sconces and more that blend in with the mystery of the colour.”
Talking about bringing out the finer details, she said, “With a refined character, homburg grey appreciates the perfection and precision of everything it layers. It is best seen in clean-lined profiles as in striped wainscoting over the walls, louvres along the windows for a touch of country, shutters or panelling for the shelving units, chevron dado on the sitouts, 3d tiles in resin or ceramic for walls and more that accentuate the intricacy of the materials without coming out too strong. The colour also makes way for planters to introduce a gradient in the colour scheme and create an interesting aesthetic.”
Suggesting pairing it up with wood in the moodboards, she said, “As a colour that is as emotive as bare-faced, homburg grey certainly leans towards materials like wood, jute, bamboo and other natural materials that lend a personal touch and create a meaningful aesthetic. It reveals its authentic flavour with warmer, nostalgic decor pairs like handcrafted interior textiles, woven light fixtures, antique furniture and more that carry the artisanal quality. The colour can become a subtle backdrop behind a reclaimed wood console, a bold closet by the slatted wood feature, a statement seater by a custom log table and more that will stand out in an interior as a piece of art in itself.”
