3. Grey and yellow hues
Yellow and grey is a wonderfully versatile combination. If you love the cheerfulness of bright sunshine yellow, soft grey tones are a great way to keep this vibrant shade from becoming overwhelming. Alternatively, if you’re a fan of on-trend mustard, dark charcoal greys work well to complement and anchor this striking tone.
Whatever your preference, remember to choose a grey that has a similar undertone to your yellow. For example, cooler yellows work better with blue-toned greys, whereas warm-toned yellows are better suited to red-toned greys.

5. Grey, cream and dark brown
To create a sense of classic style in your living room, think about pairing soft grey with cream and dark brown. This neutral palette works particularly well with traditional interiors, although it would look equally exquisite in an industrial-inspired living room.
With soft grey shades (particularly with a warm undertone) on your walls, the opportunities are endless to create an inviting living room. Marry your grey shades with statement leather sofas, such as a classic chesterfield, or mix and match armchairs in distressed brown leather. Accessorise with soft furnishing in cream hues and a variety of textures (wood, for example, works very well with a brown, cream and grey colour scheme).

7. Grey and deep green
Deep green also works well in grey colour schemes for living rooms. For a contemporary take on green, look for deep forest shades. These striking hues perfectly complement a range of grey tones.
To give your living room a sense of opulence, pair deep green with dark, charcoal greys. These colours look sumptuous together and work particularly well in larger rooms. To add drama, choose wood and metal coffee tables or industrial-style bookcases to create a real style statement.
For smaller rooms, combine your deep green shade with softer grey hues – add a pop of colour to a grey sofa with a dark green or rich teal cushion.
You may want to introduce colour through your living room furniture itself, rather than use this vibrant shade on your walls. A dark green sofa against a muted grey backdrop will prevent your living room from feeling cluttered or limited in space.
