Gray, silver and the timeless white and gray pairing are colors that will most likely never go out of style. Whichever is the style we are planning for our home, we can imagine gray walls, gray furniture pieces, gray artwork and even gray lighting designs! Nowadays, it is especially used in Scandinavian interiors, which allows you to create a stunning gray living room with little to no effort. All you have to do is to choose the right furniture and the best lighting!
You don’t need much to have a stunning gray living room. You can use different shades of gray to create depth and contrast. This will open up your living room even if you don’t have that much space and/or natural daylight.
Edison light bulbs are still a thing in the ongoing days, and they are a great way to create a statement look in a monochromatic living room. They look simple, but definitely very trendy!
You can use an exotic gray wallpaper to create a special look in your living room. All you have to do then is to choose a nice lighting design to go with your new furniture and you’re set for success.
Or you can go full scandinavian in your open plan room. With this, we mean that you can – and should – use very light shades of gray and mix them with whites and light wooden elements. If you want, you can go with an all-white room decor and then add just a few silver details for the final touch.
GRAY FURNITURE IDEAS!
Scandinavian homes require simple lighting designs, with more attention to quality than grandness. We have chosen these two suspension lamps by DelightFULL to reflect that need in Scandinavian design. Sinatra suspension lamp, on the left, is made of brass with a nickel finish and aluminum shades painted glossy gray. On the right, there’s Clark, a smaller piece, also made of brass with a stunning nickel finish.
And every living room needs an accent chair to be complete. And even though Scandinavian interiors don’t have the need of very intricate and complex pieces, this armchair by Essential Home gives us that feeling of simplicity, with a hint of luxury given by the gold plated stand.
