Living room colors Thursday, January 04th 2018.
From near-black to pale silvers, there’s a shade of gray to fit any space. “To find the best shade, you need to consider which direction your room faces, what time of day you will be in there, the prevailing weather (even the hemisphere makes a difference), and last of all (in fact, let’s be honest, least of all) the actual shade you like,” says Kate Watson-Smyth, who wrote the book on decorating with gray. The cool color works in any space from the kitchen to the bedroom and compliments any style of furniture, artwork, and accessories. Gray even works in children’s rooms, creating a space that they won’t outgrow. The hue looks beautiful paired with classic white trim and ceilings, or it can be applied from top-to-bottom to bring a sense of coziness. High-gloss finishes add a sense of luxury and give the space a soft glow by reflecting light.
