Which shade of grey will suit a carpet in a small room?

I am looking for a good-quality silver- grey carpet. It could verge towards blue but mustn't be dark or sombre as the room it will be fitted in is small.

I am looking for a good-quality silver- grey carpet. It could verge towards blue but mustn’t be dark or sombre as the room it will be fitted in is small. Grey is a neutral that always acknowledges some root. You can find warm greys such as Ryasilk Chenille Grey 100 per cent wool, in any width up to 5m in 1cm multiples, from Ryalux, 01706 716000, ryalux.com; and a loop pile Wool Popcorn in WV404 Silver, 100 per cent wool, in 4m and 5m widths, from Crucial Trading, 01562 743747, crucial-trading.com. A light grey is V&A Twist 90 Zinc Glaze, 80 per cent wool, 20 per cent nylon, in widths up to 5m, from Ryalux, as before. A silver-grey of slightly deeper tone is Prestige 2080 100 per cent wool, 457cm and 550cm wide, from Bill Nunn, 01992 642753, billnunn-carpets.co.uk. To judge which carpet will be best for your room, lay the cuttings on the floor and see which looks best with the furnishings.
