Gray is a highly versatile color that works well with a huge variety of accent colors. In this predominantly gray living room by Bankston May Associates, mustard yellow was used as an accent to add an element of cheer and optimism. To create a look like this, make sure that the gray and the accent color used are similar in tone.
As a general rule when it comes to grey living room ideas – the cooler the tone you choose, the warmer the lighting should be – think about the room at night, you'll still want it to feel cosy and welcoming despite the cool grey colour scheme. Pick out lamp shades that give of a yellowish glow and always go for warm/soft white bulbs.
