When it comes to transforming a grey wall, the colour palette you choose is crucial. Opt for colours that complement the grey base and add depth and vibrancy to the space. Think of warm hues like rich burgundy, deep emerald green, or luxurious royal blue. These colours will create a striking contrast and make your artwork pop.

Embrace the power of texture
