The colour grey is an unemotional colour. It is detached, neutral, impartial and indecisive. It is the transition between the two colours of black and white. Since grey is both motionless and unemotional, a grey fabric can create a very solid and stable effect, which creates a sense of calmness. It can help develop interior schemes that are both elegant and formal, as the colour is conventional, reliable and practical and therefore often within modern and contemporary interior design schemes. As grey is very controlled it can be found in a number of fabric textures and weaves from chenille and velvets, and faux fur which is very suitable for use as a grey upholstery fabric, to intricate embroidery fabrics more suited for curtains and accessories. It has a stabilizing effect on other colours it encounters, downplaying the stronger and brighter colours and enlightening the softer colours, so it can often be found within grey plaid fabrics and curtain fabrics. Sometime the grey used in fabrics is rarely a perfect blend of black and white so either light grey or dark grey. It often has elements of other colours, such as blue, green, pink, purple or yellow in it, which uplifts and activates it.
