Cool grey is a versatile and sophisticated color that can create a variety of effects in interior design.
Depending on the shade, tone, and contrast, cool grey can be used to create a calming, elegant, modern, or dramatic space.
Here are some ways to use cool grey in interior design:
  • Introduce colorful accessories.
    Cool grey can act as a neutral backdrop for pops of color, such as yellow, pink, green, or blue.
    Colorful accessories, such as pillows, rugs, lamps, or artwork, can add interest and personality to a cool grey living room.

  • Pair grey and dark navy.
    Cool grey and dark navy are a classic combination that can create a refined and cozy atmosphere.
    Navy can add depth and warmth to a cool grey space, while grey can lighten and balance a dark navy space.
    You can use navy on the walls, furniture, or curtains, and grey on the floors, cushions, or throws.

  • Zone an open-plan living room with a fireplace.
    A fireplace can be a focal point and a cozy element in a cool grey living room.
    You can use a fireplace to zone an open-plan space, creating a separate area for seating, dining, or working.
    A fireplace can also add contrast and texture to a cool grey wall, especially if it has a stone, brick, or wood surround.

  • Paint alcove cabinetry grey.
    Alcove cabinetry can provide storage and display space in a living room, as well as a sense of symmetry and order.
    Painting the cabinetry grey can create a sleek and modern look, as well as a contrast with the wall color.
    You can choose a lighter or darker shade of grey depending on the mood you want to create.

  • Pair bare walls with statement furniture.
    If you want a minimalist and airy look, you can leave your walls bare and let your furniture do the talking.
    Choose statement pieces that have interesting shapes, colors, or materials, such as a velvet sofa, a leather chair, or a metal coffee table.
    Cool grey walls can make your furniture stand out and create a spacious and elegant feel.

  • Layer your mirrors.
    Mirrors can reflect light and make a cool grey room feel brighter and bigger.
    You can layer different sizes and shapes of mirrors on a wall, creating a gallery-like effect.
    Mirrors can also add style and personality to a cool grey room, especially if they have decorative frames or unique designs.

  • Paint your floorboards.
    If you have wooden floorboards, you can paint them grey to create a cool and contemporary look.
    Grey floorboards can add a touch of color and contrast to a white or cream room, or a sense of harmony and continuity to a grey room.
    You can choose a matte or glossy finish, depending on the style you want to achieve.

  • Create the illusion of a large space with striped carpet.
    Striped carpet can create a visual illusion of a larger and longer space, as well as a dynamic and playful look.
    You can choose a striped carpet that has different shades of grey, or a mix of grey and another color, such as black, white, or blue.
    Striped carpet can work well in a hallway, a staircase, or a living room.
