The 1980s may have had magnolia, but the wall colour of the Millennium so far is grey.
The colour grey is a perfect neutral that lives between the extremes of white and black. As far as colours go grey is impartial, neutral and detached. It is precisely this inherent sense of detachment that makes grey such a go-to neutral. In fact, it’s become the most popular neutral in interiors, replacing creams and browns.
However grey can also create a warm scheme as easily as a cool one; it can channel edgy modern and charming country; be calm and soothing or vivid, lively and energetic. Pale and subtle, or dark and daring grey. These are the colours of the moment
If you’re looking for energy or excitement in your colour scheme, you’ll want to look elsewhere than grey alone.

Just for fun do you know where the phase "tying the knot" come from?
Believe it or not, the expression dates back to Roman times. There was an old marriage custom of actually tying the couple’s hands together as part of the ceremony. They weren’t allowed to untie it until they had carried out the marriage ceremony! It’s also thought that on the wedding night, the groom actually had the task of untying his bride, much like a present!!

Traditionally newly weds would often move into a house together for the first time so traditional gifts would often be the gifts that would be used in the new house.
