Gray is no longer the dull, boring color it used to be. In the home, it is a neutral, sophisticated hue that can be used in a number of different ways. You can use it as the main color in your scheme, or you can simply use gray as an accent. Are you wondering how you can decorate your home with gray? Follow this advice for a simply beautiful home interior decorated with gray.
Think sleek, sophisticated
Gray is a great color choice for a sophisticated interior design. Think sleek and chic for the dining or living room with light to medium gray walls and white trim. Add color accents with a few pillows on the sofa or the dining chairs. Yellow is a popular accent color that pops against all the gray. Hang a crystal chandelier above the dining table to top off your sophisticated vibe.
Use gray accents
Are you worried that a gray color scheme will get to be too dull, boring...or depressing? Instead, use accents of gray throughout a colorful room in the home. Where you would add pops of color in a neutral interior, replace them with shades of gray and replace the all-over neutrals with color.
Can you really decorate with shades of gray in the home? A monochromatic color scheme consists of black and white, along with several shades of gray. You really can choose gray as your monochromatic scheme; simply change it up with contrasting textures and patterns for added interest.
Choose a neutral backdrop
Gray become a blank slate for trends that come and go. Create a neutral backdrop in your home with shades of gray, then decorate with trendy items that can be easily replaced. Accent items, such as pillows, curtains and other accessories can be changed out with the seasons or anytime you need a change.
Keep it serene
Gray is a serene color that works well in even bedrooms and bathrooms. These two rooms especially need to be peaceful and relaxing. Choose a low-contrast gray and white color scheme for your bedroom or bathroom--or any other room in the house where you like to kick back and relax.
