Do you have a grey couch in your living room? If so, I’ve got some good news – almost everything goes with grey, which makes styling around it super easy.
Even if you like a more warm-toned room, you can still make your grey couch work.
If you’re unsure how to get started, here are 8 grey couch living room ideas you can use in your home.
1.Accessorize with Gold
Truth be told, all colors look good with gray. But if you’re looking for an easy color to accessorize with, gold is it.
2.Bring in Warmth with a Wood Accent Chair
If you want to warm up your room, bring in a wooden accent chair. These chairs help pull the warmth from the grey in the couch and provide visual contrast.
You can add two chairs across from your sofa or use one like pictured above. Either way, chairs made of wood or other natural materials look great with a light grey couch.
3.Pull in a Beautiful Coffee Table
Speaking of natural materials – they really do look great with gray sofas. Aside from accent chairs, another way to pull in natural materials is with your coffee table. Take this table for example, it has rich wooden legs and a beautiful quartz top.
With the table being so pretty you can keep the rest of the decor in your living room fairly muted. If that’s not your style, try layering in some plants.
4.Use Pillows for Pops of Colors
The easiest way to change the look of your couch and the feel of your living room is to change out the throw pillows. For a light grey couch, consider a red or burnt orange.
For dark grey couches, use a light-colored pillow for contrast. Or, if you like the monochromatic look, use a lighter shade of grey.
5Try a Monochromatic Color Scheme
Monochromatic color schemes are about using different tones of the same color. For instance, if you have a gray couch in the living room, you could use a darker shade of gray on the wall and a light gray rug underneath as pictured.
You can keep layering in the gray items until you’ve reached the desired effect.
6.Add a Floor Lamp Beside the Couch
A floor lamp can provide better lighting in your living room and double down as decor. If you’re going for a glam or romantic look, consider a floor lamp like the picture above.
If you prefer modern or farmhouse looks, try to find a matte black floor lamp. These lamps will go with any grey couch and provide you with some lighting to kick back with a book each night.
7.Get a Square Coffee Table for a Gray Sectional
If you have a large sectional, one of the easiest ways to make it look pulled together is to add an appropriate-sized square coffee table.
This coffee table from Serena & Lily comes in three colors: chalk, dove, and coastal blue. All three are great options for gray sofas. If you’re looking for high contrast or a beachy feel, try the coastal blue.
8.Choose the Right End Tables
No doubt, picking a coffee table is important, but so are end tables. If you want a standout end table, consider this one from Anthropologie. This table has solid wood legs, marble tops with a brass inlay star pattern.
These tables will look good with light gray, greige, or warm gray couches.
