Mix up those greys
There are lots of different greys out there, so be sure to mix it up in your living room. Sticking to one particular grey, or shades that are very similar, will make the room seem dull and flat. Avoid this, if you're layering greys, by choosing one shade as a base colour on the walls, another for your grey living room furniture, and a different one again for your accessories.
With the walls, opt for a matte grey paint, as anything too glossy will give an industrial metal effect. Unlike matte white, a matte grey actually hides marks and imperfections quite well. A cream coloured skirting board or cornice, rather than stark white or a pebble grey, will set it off nicely too. And as you introduce cushions, throws and accessories to vary those greys even more, remember that lighting can help. Grey is the colour of shadow, so multiple light sources, from table lamps to sconces, will add even more depth and warmth.
