Current Obsessions: Greige - The Newest Quartz Countertop Color

December 18, 2015

Is it gray? Is it beige? Neither — or both; it's "greige." You can't get any more neutral than greige, which is more of an attitude than an actual color. It's the perfect choice for a quartz countertop because compliments everything else you could want to add to your home décor. From glossy black to matte white, rustic woods, bold colors or even pastels, you can count on greige as a coordinating hue. And since a quartz countertop is a long-term commitment, there's zero risk should you decide to re-do your kitchen, or even sell your home to people with different taste in décor.
