Greige tends to be a neutral people use with colors, but don’t let that stop you from going for a full neutral palette.

We could totally see this house as a mountain mansion, couldn’t you?

8. Get Bold With Black

Get Bold With Black

If you want to go for a bold architectural idea like black gutters as an outline to your home, you’re going to need a siding color that can make that choice pop. Greige is a great pick for this because it’s light enough to show off that feature without making it look too stark.

WIth that said, this type of special take is all about getting the right shade of greige for the job. We suggest going for a more beige-like greige that’s on the lighter side of the spectrum.

In some parts of the country, greige isn’t just a siding color. It’s almost a way of life. If you want to have a home that really takes this trend to the next level, don’t just keep your siding greige. Go for the gold by matching your shutters to your siding. It may be a bit overkill in some peoples’ eyes, but it will look beautiful when executed correctly.

11. Red And Greige

Red And Greige

A lot of people find greige to be a somewhat “draining” color. This means that it tends to make your home feel a bit dull or lifeless when planned incorrectly. If that sounds like your take on greige, then you may want to pair it with a fiery color like a deep red. Here, we see the look,and it’s very “California artsy,” if you know what we mean.
