While browsing the web on Saturday night I came across this Living Room in the 2011 HGTV Green Home. Oh. My. Gawd. I’ve been battling the gray trend, but recently gave in when I painted my guest room, and now this…
It’s been a while since I’ve written a Hues You Can Use post [sorry about that] and figured I’d better get it together.
Sherwin Williams Grizzle Gray works so well in this room because of the abundance of natural light, the balance of stark white linen drapery panels, and the introduction of wood into the mix. Hello Yellow! Isn’t it totally livable when paired with neutrals? Black, white and gray allow yellow to take center stage, yet blend harmoniously.
The designer, Linda Woodrum adds a bit of the unexpected with this orange side table to the room’s citrus-y color palette. Its presence inserts charm and playfulness to the scheme, too.
When you are obsessed with fabrics like I am you immediately recognize patterns and often know where to find cost effective alternatives. Just the other day I told someone how I was over chevron patterns. The above selection made me eat my words.
As you see below, the entire room isn’t painted the same color. In fact, the dark paint and room-sized area rug cleverly distinguish the living room as a separate space in this open floor plan.
The same color combo was on trend last spring and doesn’t seem to be fading anytime soon. Will gray find a place in your home this season?
