Shades of Grey

50 Shades of Grey is the book and topic of the moment with the publication of the trilogy this Spring. The erotic novel is exciting imaginations, I haven't read it yet but what stimulated my imagination was the mix of erotica and the color grey.

The color grey is everywhere today from shoes, handbags and scarves to wonderful selections of paints and fabrics for interiors. Grey in the bedroom was usually left for a discerning gentleman's room but a quick look through magazines and blogs show grey is used with mystery and a sense of eroticism with the addition of  some gold or a romantic chandelier. Pink is always an excellent compliment with grey, and a flattering color.

With white, grey textures of cashmere or flannel adds a seductive touch. A color we should reconsider.
