Grey is an absolute classic color that, in the past few years, has become a new trend.
Its success is surely due to its versatility: the ultimate neutral color, is perfectly paired to all other colors, whether they are in the minimal palette ( white, black, beige) or more distinctive colors that create interesting contrasts (e.g. yellow or pastel shades).
In the same way, grey makes the perfect background to both modern and classic/ romantic settings, due to its whispered elegance that allows endless combinations.
The only risk you may take when using grey, is that of having a surround that is a bit dull: but this risk is totally avoided when the grey element is represented by marble, as this stone, with is unique veinings and always changing shades, gives life and peculiarity to every project
