Whether you want a neutral living room with pops of color or a color scheme to match your gray couch, there are many neutral living room decorating ideas and paint color ideas for your living room walls below.

Speaking of gray living room paint colors (I LOVE grey walls in a living room or den, don’t you??)…

If you have a small living room that you want to paint with wall colors that make it feel bigger and brighter, these are excellent neutral / gray living room wall paint color ideas that will really brighten your space.

What TYPE of decor style do YOU like? I’m personally a fan of modern farmhouse style living rooms, but there are also warm earth tones, beige neutral living rooms and more ideas for your living room in your house or apartment. Some of the gray modern living room ideas are pretty awesome too!

A neutral color scheme that accentuates a sense of space and light can be used very effectively in a room with large windows and generous proportions, and is therefore highly suitable for a living room, usually the largest area in the average house.

The spaciousness can be exaggerated by creating a visual extension of the horizontal and vertical planes with some well placed decor and more minimalist decorating style.

If you’re looking for the perfect area rug for your neutral living room, you really need to take a look at this area rug here.

Look how gorgeous it is:

It goes perfectly with hardwood or carpeted flooring and can really brighten up a neutral grey living room – and even make it feel bigger.

That rug comes in lots of colors, too!

Ok, let’s look at some more cozy gray living room decorating ideas for YOUR living room.

One simple way of achieving this by introducing stripes from ceiling to floor. Plain banners of inexpensive cloth, such as calico, stapled or battened at ceiling height at regular intervals along a bare wall, make both a lineal and textural addition to the room.

Alternatively, broad stripes painted in a subtle variation of the leading wall color would have the same optical result, but without the change of texture.

Effective neutral color combinations for the living room should maintain the decorative flow. For example, use shades of gray and white together, with darker shades of the same colors emphasis.

Also, consider defining the contrast between the absolute neutrals of black and white, it can create quite a dramatic effect. Mix the textured tones found in tobacco, ecru, and oatmeal matte surfaces and materials to promote a sense of harmony.

The gray living room is greatly enhanced by the clever use of variety in ornament and texture. It is likely that this room will contain more decorative objects than any other, and neutral surroundings make a great backdrop for them. Ornamental details are very useful when a change of textural emphasis is needed, as they add interest to the scheme using a medium other than color.

Place textured elements in juxtaposition to their natural neighbors for a tactile finish, such as the partnership of polished stone against sub linen, rough wood against devoure velvet, and wicker against muslin.

The neutral scheme should not be allowed to become blurred at the edges, losing the definition of the individual materials, which is more likely to happen in the living room than any other room due to the amount soft materials it usually contains, including sofas and armchair, cushions, throws, carper, and rugs. One way to avoid this is to use a contrasting color to define the decorative flow.

Yep, use ‘pops’ of color throughout!

As the concept is to maintain a monochromatic effect, it would be pointless to use a true color, but black or a deep shade of brown will have a dramatic effect on maintaining form and outline. This device might be adopted to emphasize any surface plan, such as edging the curtains to define the vertical, incorporating a darker dado rail or skirting to delineate the horizontal, or edging the carpet with tape or a narrow border to highlight the flat. It is also a good idea to uses a slightly darker carpet color to prevent the scheme from floating.

A well balanced lighting plan is so important here. Not only must it be practical and aesthetic for reading, relaxing and entertaining, but it should illuminate the room in such a way that the sense of space is uninterrupted by areas of shadow, and it is essential that lighting should not corrupt the subtlety of the colors used.
