Complimenting Grey Business CardsIt is now official that grey is more popular than black – in terms of car colour at least. But in terms of all aspects of design grey has been steadily marching up the charts for several years. A trendy pub or restaurant will greet you with calming grey walls and dark grey trim; soft furnishings match and compliment grey tones; cars, clothes, nails and even hair are now vamping up grey.
