I've been fascinated by the color greige lately and decided to do a little research on it. The dictionary meaning is "being in an unbleached, undyed state as taken from a loom". The first use of the word dates back to 1926 in reference to french raw silk. It has become known in interior design circles as the color that hovers between grey and beige, a muted light grey with a touch of warmth. I always assumed a green involvement in the color greige. Here's my interpretation as I display pieces of stone, paper, silk, ceramic and steel to arrive the perfect neutral, the intersection of green, grey & beige.
