Home Decor Ideas: Who Knew Grey Could Be So Beautiful?

Home Decor Ideas: Who Knew Grey Could Be So Beautiful?

Today we are trumping the misguided decorating idea that the color grey is dull, dark, depressing or boring. In nature grey skies signify an impending rain storm or gloomy day, but in home design and decorating, using the color grey on walls and furniture creates an elegant and chic room, especially when accented with vibrant colors like turquoise, lavenders and violets.

Read on for fab photo examples of how to decorate your home with grey tone paints, furniture and accessories...

Room 1: In this room the dark grey walls and light grey sofa are jazzed up with varying patterns and textured turquoise, fuchsia and violet cushions. The look is completed by the eye catching blue-green chandelier and dark turquoise rug. 

Room 2: The Light grey-blue wall paint is accented by a pink love-seat, black and white graphic cushions, plush white cushions and black wall accessories, which come together to create a warm and inviting space.

Room 3: Dark Grey walls, carpeting and furniture are given the royal treatment with a stunning crystal chandelier and lavender side lamps, creating an opulent space.

Room 4: In this room the light grey walls, sofa and side lamps, receive a punch of color with fresh fuchsia flowers and purple cushions. The room's decor is completed with a chic black and white patterned chair and plush white rug.

    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something
    to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to
    let you know.
    The design and style look great though!
    Hope you get the problem solved soon.
