Adding striking accents of yellow into your interior is a sure-fire way to transform your living room into a bold and bright space without being overwhelming. Sunny mustard yellow contrasted against a moody graphite grey creates an ultra modern statement look. This contemporary pairing is most effective when used in geometric prints, abstract shapes and sharp lines.
If you’re wanting more of a soft, calming ambience, a cool-toned blush pink is perfect for you. This sweet, feminine hue incorporates subtle sophistication with little to no effort required. As it’s such a subtle colour, try experimenting with different textures and shapes to create further dimension to your space.
Transform your home into one fit for a king by incorporating rich shades of purple into your decor. This stunning hue adds elegance and mystery to any room, however, less is more with this regal shade, as too much can turn your home into a dark, uninviting space. Often seen in the bedroom to promote relaxation, this luxurious colour deserves its place in your living area too!
Can’t decide on one colour? You don’t have to! Being such a versatile base, grey can be styled with many different pops of colour. If bright primary colours are a little too daunting, opt for muted shades to tone down the noise and prevent any chance of clashing.
Black & White
Black and white paired with grey is always a good match. Classic and sophisticated, this monochrome styling grounds any room by creating depth and dimension. For a dramatic, statement look, opt for a rug consisting of more black than white. However, for a brighter, airy feel, look for rugs containing more white and only small accents of black.
What pairs well with grey other than… more grey! By sticking to one colour, you’re opening yourself up to an exciting world of shades, textures and patterns. Play around with different fabrics to create your perfect greyscale home. A shimmery viscose rug or a fluffy wool rug would add dimension to a sea of grey.
