Such a meant-to-be colour coupling, grey and white marks a simple but beautifully cohesive colour combination. Dark grey, mid-grey and pale grey all work well with white, and the colour duo suits any style of property too, from a sleek and contemporary loft apartment to a modern country barn conversion.
“Grey living rooms make for very elegant and private spaces, which actually can be very difficult to execute,” says Louise Bradley who designed this space, “As in all interiors, balance and harmony are key when creating exceptional spaces. That’s relevant to both interiors which use broad palettes of saturated colours and to spaces which have a more limited palette – the latter is actually more challenging to work with. What to a naked eye might look like a grey living room, at closer inspection is a space featuring various tones of the colour, accompanied by hues of white and black, together with muted golds and even touches of very dark blues and purples. The whole scheme is further brought to life with specialist wall finishes, fabrics of different textures as well as bespoke rugs and accessories. In truth, these grey living rooms are vibrant and full of expression.”
If you’re designing a grey and white living room like this living room, commit to the combination by using contrasts on your walls, floor, furniture and accessories. It’s a sure-fire way to achieve a crisp aesthetic and easy coordination.
