Looking to add a flexible, neutral shade to your interiors. Chic Shadow Dulux enters as a mid-grey shade, offering a little bit of warmth to your interiors, that can equally be elevated with bold statement colours, or paired tonally with other complementary colours.
A baseline grey colour is a great alternative to bright white, it’s much more forgiving and works well in living rooms, hallways, kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms.
Join me as I delve into this hugely popular grey Dulux shade, and explore what colours go well with Chic Shadow Dulux.
What Colour Is Chic Shadow Dulux?
Chic Shadow Dulux is a perfectly well balanced mid grey shade, it’s not pale grey, nor is it dark grey. This versatile shade keeps an interior light, whilst it brings an air of warmth with it too. This neutral shade is highly complementary with other colours.
Is Dulux Chic Shadow A Warm Grey?
Dulux Chic Shadow is is a mid range grey shade, it does have warm undertones from lilac colouring, but it’s still generally considered a cool grey for an interior. Pairing with purple undertones will help to bring this warmth out in Chic Shadow.
What Colours Go With Chic Shadow Dulux?
Chic Shadow has hints of purple undertones which helps to bring warmth to this grey shade. Gentle Lavender is a beautiful, lilac shade, or pair with a more defining shade such as Pressed Thistle.
Introducing a darker shade like Pressed Thistle is great for grounding the room, think of adding it to skirting boards, architraves and doors. Alternatively bring it into the space with decor accessories, cushions and throws.
Perhaps you want to keep things neutral in your colour scheme. With a mid-range grey like Chic Shadow, pair with the likes of Polished Pebble by Dulux, a cooler pale grey, and lift things with Natural Slate. This darker grey shade works well as a defining accent in a room if black feels a little too harsh for the colour scheme.
This trio of colours work well together but it can result in a cold colour scheme. Do try to incorporate other colours to keep it feeling light and airy, even if that’s just a warm cream shade, a pop of purple or bright white on the ceiling.
Designer’s Choice Combinations
Chic Shadow can feel a little bit cool in an interior without introducing the right colours, and these shades with yellow undertones are perfect for bringing some warmth into an interior.
Honey Mustard brings a masculine feel to an interior, whilst Celtic Cream is a more understated, honey coloured shade.
Chic Shadow & Black
Black and grey is a timeless pairing of colours. For a modern interior, black is a defining accent colour that will ground the room. Introduce it with small accents such as with interior hardware details like cup handles, sockets & switches and chair legs.
Perhaps for a moodier aesthetic you might want to bring black in as the dominant colour, with Chic Shadow used as a complementary colour.
Chic Shadow & Green
Introducing Earthy Green into the equation with grey will ground the room and provides a soft, thoughtful touch to an interior. It’s perfect for a neutral colour scheme.
Introduce it in subtle details such as curtains, cushions and throws. Think about texture and pattern too, this is a great way to add depth and character to a space.
Chic Shadow & Blush Pink
Blush pink is one of my favourite complementary colours to a grey like Chic Shadow. It adds a feminine touch, and you only need to use it on a few well placed items to benefit from its warmth.
Introduce it with decor accessories, cushions, throws, curtains and even rugs.
Chic Shadow & White
To stop Chic Shadow feeling oppressive, a standard bright white shade is perfect for lifting the room. Use it on the ceiling or above a picture rail to help elevate the room, your eye will instantly be drawn up to the stark contrast as you enter the room, giving the illusion of higher ceilings.
Grey and white alone can be considered a pretty bland colour scheme in a home, so do introduce other colours to break up the monotony of the shades.
Chic Shadow & Cream
If white feels a little bit too clinical, introducing a cream shade will add warmth and depth to the room. Use it in a similar way to white, or bring it in with beautiful decor accessories and throws with materials such as boucle, wool and calico fabric to add gorgeous texture to the room.
