Grey is a very popular color for living room decor. It is neutral and looks beautiful paired with trendy materials like sequins or faux fur. You can choose to stick to the neutral color palette and complement the grey decor with a lot of white pieces. Or you can choose an accent color like nude or dusty pink! I really like a gray living room with pops of color throughout, don’t you? And it’s so easy to see why. Grey can 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.
A neutral color scheme that accentuates a sense of space and light can be used very effectively in a room with large windows and generous proportions, and is therefore highly suitable for a living room, usually the largest area in the average house. Each shade of grey is capable of creating a different look, feel and style of living room and the shade that you choose will be part and parcel of your own personal style. The spaciousness can be exaggerated by creating a visual extension of the horizontal and vertical planes.
One simple way of achieving this by introducing stripes from ceiling to floor. Alternatively, broad stripes painted in a subtle variation of the leading wall color would have the same optical result, but without the change of texture. Team cool grey and geometrics with primrose yellow splashes for a vintage look with a modern twist. Keep the scheme contemporary with grey walls and furniture, then add warmth with hints of yellow in geometric prints and furnishings and character with a cool mix of retro accessories. Wooden cube tables and copper details complement the retro vibe.
