Grey – What Does it Symbolise?

Grey – What Does it Symbolise?

Grey is a neutral colour and therefore can be teamed with a wide variety of colours.  Though it is often seen as a dirty colour, we love it because it really can represent anything you want from sophisticated, and regal to bringing a natural feeling to your colour palette.

The colour grey is associated with and represents:

  • Dirty
  • Sophisticated
  • Elegant
  • Depression
  • Regal
  • Formal
  • Dingy
  • Dull
  • Loss

Light grey is often seen as feminine and dark gray as masculine.  In our opinion a man in a grey suit is masculine and strong.

There are different shades and tints of grey and just some of them are referred to as:

  • Charcoal
  • Slate
  • Ashen
  • Mousy
  • Silver
  • Pearl
  • Taupe
  • Iron
  • Lead
  • Gunmetal
  • Dove
  • Powder
  • Oyster
