I did another post on What Colors Go With Gray Furniture in 2012 and it so needed to be updated. It’s still remains one of my more popular posts and color trends have changed quite a bit since 2012 so here’s the update.
I have a typical gray sofa in this graphic, one that I have seen in many homes. Some grays are warmer and some are cooler of course but this one seems to be the norm or at least the color that is trending now.
The paint colors you see above are from the Benjamin Moore Color Story collection which I love! They are clean and up lifting. Now the colors you see are just some represented from the more popular hues that are in todays homes.
Knitted Cape is a crisp clean pale yellow. There is nothing that screams classic colors more so than a yellow/gray color duo.
Sea Salt (not to be confused with the Sherwin William Sea Salt) is more so staying in the gray color trend that many still have in the home. It reflects a monochromatic palette that will make your home appear to be a larger space. Just make sure the undertones of your grays are the same.
Faded Violet is a bit more “creative” and for those of you who like to be more expressive, this is a great choice with gray. It will definitely liven up the room. It’s a fun, youthful color.
Sylvan Mist is a beautiful color! It’s one color that you don’t see commonly in the home (I have a similar color in mine) and it is really a breath of fresh air.
Now you may be seeing Tropical Oasis popping up in stores. This is one of those colors that was seen decades ago and is coming back. It’s fun, trendy and says “I dare to have fun with color in my home!” Try it as an accent color if you feels it’s too much color for you.
Closing with Porcelain Glaze, this is somewhat of a typical color choice that most would feel comfortable with in the home. It’s an offshoot from the coastal blues which still are very popular color choices. Now be careful with this color, it is a cooler blue so make sure you do not have a warm gray sofa of it will look off. Again, it’s all about the undertones.
Well I hope you enjoyed the update on this post, it was long overdue. Have questions about your gray furniture? Add it to the comments.
