You're a fan of interior design, so are we! We don't stop at our curtains, throw pillows, or wall paint. Even our laces have this style sense. Do not deny it, embrace it, I see you with your grey taupe laces.
While grey taupe will leave you indoors with your throw pillows, take the colour for a walk and put grey taupe shoelaces on your favourite shoes! The colour grey taupe is just as pleasing to the eye on the surface of your curtains as it is on your shoes. (you do what you want). A shoelace colour that can blind!
