All-grey living room idea

Light grey is a wonderful shade when getting ideas about a grey colour scheme for your living room. It offers a sense of spacious and airy living that makes a room look relaxing and tranquil. Light grey walls work exceptionally well, especially if you want to combine different shades of grey furnishings as it will create a canvas-like space mix and match contrasting greys. Combine minimalist decor with an all grey living room just like this setup below.

Dark grey living room idea

Have you always wanted to have a dark and cosy living room? While black is best avoided in the living room, grey is an alternative shade to paint your walls to mooden a room. When painting your living room dark grey, it’s best to do it with caution as it can carry a dull look if it’s not done right. Combine with bright colours including white accents to contrast a dark grey room. 

This can be done in many ways including bright sofas to liven up your space as well as vibrant artwork and lamps. If you’ve got a beautiful fireplace in your living room, make sure it’s done in a way that lightens up your space to avoid being lost as your living room’s focal point.
