From weathered driftwood to dramatic charcoal, the gray color family offers a wealth of drawn-from-nature neutrals that allow you to create gray living rooms that suit every style preference. Browse our photos of gray living room ideas to find inspiration for using the fashion-forward hue to devise looks from peaceful to theatrical. See how simply lightening or darkening the shade of gray on living room walls can shift design styles from monochromatically modern to tastefully transitional. Combine graphite-gray walls, clean-lined seating upholstered in pearl-gray chenille, and vibrant yellow, pink, or lime accent fabrics for a contemporary scene. Lighten the walls to concrete, move in white slipcovered furnishings, and add painted flea market finds to generate cottage charm. Set an elegant, traditional stage by painting walls charcoal to accentuate deep-purple velvet upholstery and drapery fabrics, dark wood pieces, and gilded accessories. Warm up too-cool gray living room designs by layering in gray living room accessories boasting refined and rustic textures: think silky fabrics, roughly woven linens, black-iron fixtures, ornate silver-framed mirrors, distressed gray-painted cabinets, and zinc coffee tables. Explore our gray living room decorating ideas for ways to energize these designs with jewel-tone throw pillows, fiery red rugs, and black-and-white images and accessories.
