Embrace Shades of Gray with These Bedroom Decorating Ideas
Today we are seeing gray bedroom décor becoming a popular trend, and with good reason. Consider gray home decor a new sophisticated neutral that can go modern and contemporary or warm and rustic depending on your accessories and which end of the gray color palette you find most inviting. For bedrooms, it serves as the perfect middle ground that feels neither too masculine nor too feminine, and plays well with a slew of complementary colors. We invite you to find some inspiration here for your next bedroom makeover with the color gray.
Gray and White Bedrooms
When you’re ready to embrace the glorious depths of the gray color palette, start with a shade or two on your walls. Look for two complementary shades that strike a balance between the warm and cool tones of gray. Use one on an accent wall behind your headboard. Paint the remaining walls with the complementary color. Looks for bedding with pattern and texture, such as a mosaic print quilt. Then accessorize with creamy shades of white. Add a shaggy ottoman or a flurry of throw pillows. You can infuse a light pop of color by hanging a colorful canvas print or piece of wall art.
Gray and Purple Bedrooms
Gray hues seem to blend beautifully with all shades of purple. Keep everything in pastel hues for a light airy feel, or skew your color palette to the deeper richer shades to bring out a romantic, regal tone. Try pairing purple and gray shades of paint on your walls. Use your bedding to break up the solid colors with comforters or quilts in pretty patterns. Metallic accent pieces from wall art to lighting make nice complements.
Gray and Blue Bedrooms
Blue bedding and blue curtains make a distinctive pairing with gray home décor, especially in the bedroom. Crisp stripes and bold solids make this a natural choice for nautical-themed rooms or when you want to skew a look toward a masculine appeal. Add tans or whites into a blue and gray palette, especially when adding neutral elements, like a large area rug. Accessorize with side tables or desks that feature clean lines and two-toned sensibilities.
