Colour combo of the day: Duck egg blue + Grey

If anything is going to make me clucky (don't get excited mum) it's a little boy's room decked out in duck egg blue & smoky grey. I'm calling it my new favourite colour combination! So modern. In fact, anything pastel teamed with a pale grey is a delightfully fresh look. When I was little, I had a powder pink & grey room, and let me tell you, I loved it!

  1. I just ordered my baby a Grey Bumper with one pastel blue sheet and one yellow sheet for his new cot from Etsy! I thought mixing the blue and grey for winter and the grey and yellow for summer would be awesome!I've also painted an old school french chest of drawers too..I feel relieved now, i've chosen a Good Colour combo! x

  2. A friend of mine just had a baby and insisted on all grey clothes... it's like the new neutral boy/girl colour and I love having the alternative choice to unisex-yellow!

  3. Here, here! I've been carrying around two fabric samples in my bag for the last week and the colours are... (drumroll please) duck egg blue and silver grey.

    And ps. We had a pastel pink and light grey trim on the entire inside of our house. It was the eighties. I'm sorry but it has ruined me for life.

  6. ParisandPearls - Bunnings is a good start. Dulux, Taubmans etc all make DOZENS of greys... Taubmans Silver Treasure is nice. I have a swatch here as I almost painted Anoushka's bed grey(!). Quite pale though... Good luck!

  7. The duck egg blue/grey colour combo I agree is fab for a little boy's room, and this room in particular is perfect. The bleached floor, industrial light, pitched ceiling in tongue'n'groove- and that little bed! Maks me want to have another one..(almost) Naomi x
