Choosing a color theme for the living room is one of the first steps when redecorating. Even though gray is not technically a color it’s a great choice for basically everything. It’s also a very fashionable tone these days. There are lots of different hues of grey as well and you can play with that when decorating your home.
A grey living room would look both formal and stylish. It’s a tricky color but it can be very beautiful when combined with other colors. And because gray is not a very dynamic color you should use some focal points in your room. For example, a zebra rug would make a great addition to a gray living room design.
Steely gray can help create an intimate décor for the living room. You can paint the walls gray and if you want to go even further you can also paint the ceilings and the floor the same color. It would be like a gray canvas that you can then complete with all sorts of little decorations and details. If you want to add some fun and vibrant color accents you can always use the drapes, the rug, the lamps, the pendant, the pillows or the artwork.
As for the different color combinations that include gray, purple is always a good choice. Red, blue, brown or yellow are also nice options to take into consideration. And since gray is nothing but black and white combined, you can also use it with the classical black and white and maybe with some subtle touches of red. Even though gray is a color with character, it’s still considered a neutral so a complementary tone is always welcomed. To avoid a dull interior, you can try playing with textures and patterns.
