There was much debate in the Homes & Gardens office this morning about the future of grey. OK, you might call it idle chatter but we call it WORK. It’s clearly more of a moment than, say, lilac (remember the lilac craze in the late 1990s? maybe you’d rather not?). We are divided; some of us think that it is here to stay, others that it will slowly and imperceptibly become a putty-green, like the  Incredible Hulk. I was in the latter camp until I saw this new Apex design from cole and son  and you realise that grey, like black and white, Wedgwood and Eastenders, could become and an enduring classic.
