Grey Platform Bed Frames
Grey platform beds are a classic bedroom staple – but did you know that not all grey is created equal?
Understanding Grey Undertones
Since grey is neutral, it can often go with literally every color. While this is true for true grey (black + white + nothing else), grey with undertones (black + white + a hint of yellow, or red, or blue, etc.) won’t always necessarily look good with any given aesthetic.
The easiest way to tell a certain grey’s undertones is to hold it up next to another grey piece. Hold up, for example, a grey wooden spoon against a grey nightstand. Does the nightstand look a little more bluish than the spoon? If so, it has blue undertones. If it appears more yellowish, it has yellow undertones, and so on. If you can’t really tell a difference, it might be because both objects have the same undertones; keep comparing different grey items until you do notice a difference. (An alternative method is to hold up brightly-colored objects next to the grey. If a nightstand has blue undertones, it will be obvious when compared next to a bright blue shirt.)
