The colour of the month for March is a moody grey from Plascon's Essential Collection called Paris Paving (EC 53).
Sophisticated, sleek and contemporary, this grey has been gaining a lot of momentum and can be used in almost every room of the home, as well as for exteriors.
Paris Paving is cool and solid, so create and interest and mood by bringing in some lighter accents. White is the natural choice to add light and really shows off the grey. Lighter shades of grey and white in different textures also add to the mood and metallics will add glamour.
One of my favourite combinations at the moment is grey, white and inky blue. This blue-velvet couch (in the picture above) is just perfection.

Paris Paving also looks great on exteriors and can be tinted in either Micatex or Wall & All. Once again, be sure to add contrast with lighter colours. The warm wood tones give this home a much warmer and friendlier feel than if it was painted all grey.
