This pale grey shade is highly versatile, bringing an air of warmth and grace to an interior. Looking to decorate your interior with it? Join us as we take a look at the best complementary colours for this shade.

Is Pebble Shore Dulux Grey or Beige?

Pebble Shore Dulux is defined as a light grey shade, but its yellow undertones bring warmth with it. It could also be described as a mushroom colour in some lights.

This is why it’s so important to always get a tester pot and try a swatch of it in your chosen room first, this gives you a chance to see what it looks like in your home throughout the day under both natural and artificial light.

Is Pebble Shore Dulux A Warm Grey?

Yes, Pebble Shore has yellow undertones which bring warmth to this pale grey shade. This warm grey is the perfect neutral shade for a hallway, living room, bathroom or kitchen. It’s highly versatile and works well with other neutral shades, or bold pops of colour.

What Colours Go With Pebble Shore Dulux?

Tonal Combinations

When pairing colours with a paint shade it’s always best to look at what the tonal combinations are as they will match with the undertones of the shade, providing a cohesive and relaxed combination.

Dulux suggest pairing with Daffodil White and Lemon Pie, both beautiful yellow shades that help to enhance the warmth in the grey shade.

Introduce these shades on the walls, or small textile accessories like cushions and throws.

Neutral Combinations

Pebble Shore Dulux is a great neutral shade for a neutral inspired interior. Pair with other like shades like Milky Pail, a more understated, softer grey or add definition with Misty Mountain.

Misty Mountain would work well layered as a defining colour in a space on areas such as skirting boards, architraves and doors.

Designer’s Choice Combinations

Pairing tonally will always achieve the best results in an interior but it dares to be different, and Pebble Shore is an accommodating colour that pairs well with bolder pops of colour.

Dulux suggest pairing with a beautiful mauve shade such as Dusted Fondant, or adding a soft touch with Spring Rose, a beautifully feminine colour.

Pebble Shore & Black

If you’re creating a modern looking interior decor scheme, incorporating black is a perfect choice. A black accent is a defining characteristic of modern design, and it provides a defining and grounding accent against the neutrality of Pebble Shore Dulux.

Black should be used sparingly with interior hardware details such as door handles, small pieces of furniture like console tables or side tables, and as an accent on decor accessories such as prints.

Pebble Shore & Dusty Pink

Pink is a beautifully understated pairing for a grey shade such as Pebble Shore, a soft dusty pink works best, providing a subtle and feminine approach to grey.

Pink can be introduced into the interior in a number of ways, on the walls, panelling, wallpaper, furnishing or decor accessories such as cushions and throws.

Pebble Shore & White

White is a classic colour that will work seamlessly with most colours, and it looks great with a warm neutral like Pebble Shore as it can help to lift an interior.

There are 100s of different shades of white on the market. Bright white is great for providing a clean contrast on skirtings or ceilings, but if you want to bring a little bit more warmth in with it, a colour such as Cornflower White and Jasmine White are great white choices from Dulux.

Pebble Shore & Earthy Green

Earthy Green is one of my favourite tonal representations of green, it’s neutral, it can bring warmth, and when brought together with other neutral shades it creates a beautifully styled interior. Opt for a sage green or something similar to appreciate this beautiful colour.

Combining a mixture of grey and earthy green in your interior will create warm and inviting textures. Introduce it with throws, cushions and decor accessories.

Pebble Shore & Cream

If white seems a little bit too bright and harsh for your interior, cream is a perfect alternative, but it provides a seamless pairing that keeps a space looking neutral and light.

Use cream as a secondary colour on other walls if creating one focal wall with Pebble Shore, or create a half panelled wall with Pebble Shore, and cream on the upper half. This is another way you can draw the eye up as you enter the room, giving the illusion of a larger space. I feel like this colour combination would look beautiful in a bathroom, living room or hallway.
