Grey Living Room

Looking for grey living room ideas? You are not alone. Grey’s amazing versatility is what makes it so popular. 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. Just a quick peek at a Farrow & Ball paint chart is testament to the possibility of this favourite decorating shade and its enduring appeal: from the barely-there neutrals of Dimity and Ammonite, to the mid tones of Lamp Room Gray and Calluna, through the green-edged Mizzle and Pigeon, blue-hued Parma Gray and Lulworth Blue and out the other side to deep dark Down Pipe, Plummett and Brassica. 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. Modern schemes tend to call for cooler, darker, dramatic charcoals or near-blacks, while vintage and classic-inspired styles have a natural affinity with warmer blue and green-toned greys. Think about the patterns and accent shades that you might want to bring into your grey living room. If you have grey painted walls, consider pattern on flooring, curtains and upholstery. If you favour plain upholstery and flooring, consider using a grey patterned living room wallpaper. In a modern scheme, this might be stripes or geometrics in gradations of grey or black; in a country-style living room the pattern possibilities are limitless – if the tonal mix is right it’s possible to use florals, stripes and polka dots in the same scheme. Don’t underestimate the effect of a block accent shade in a modern scheme. A bright pink coffee table or orange designer chair can turn your grey living room scheme into something extraordinary. But if you’re not quite so brave, worry not. Keep accent shades for accessories rather than furniture. After more living room ideas?
