What are some good home decorating ideas to go with a gray sofa?


Answer by  Amom (701)

A grey sofa would especially look nice with a coordinating color in the cool tones, such as red, royal purple, or white. Go to the local paint store, pick out some paint chips, and see which colors will go best with your sofa and then pick out wall color, pillows, drapes, and accessory that best match your choices.

Paint the wall behind the sofa a bold color to offset the bland gray. This is called an accent wall. Use throw pillows, afghans or wall hangings to add texture and color to the room and sofa. Make sure the lighting is appropriate and is not making the sofa look drab. If push comes to shove, reupholster!

Chairs colored red or black would provide contrasting colors, especially if the pieces are leather. Wooden end tables and perhaps a coffee table made of cherrywood or mahogany will add to the effect. Framed pictures or posters with black and gray as dominant colors located wawy from the sofa will also enhance the look of the room.

Start with a sleek gray sofa, add teak tables and white accents for a sophisticated color scheme. For a more modern look, use blonde wood tables with red and yellow toss pillows, lampshades and other accents. If the sofa is more traditional shape, try rich, dark wood with wine and cream accents.

Brighten up a gray sofa with pillows in brighter colors; blues and deep maroon work well. Choose pillow colors to also pick up colors from other chairs or draperies in the room.
