Lighting is an essential part of your living room and you must have at least one fountain that has been specially designed to be combined with your gray sofa. In this family room on the Upper West Side, we place two lamps on each side of this gray sofa: a larger lamp for a basic lighting layer and a reading table lamp.
This will also help to avoid the exclusive use of indirect clinical and cold lighting, helping to create an attractive and inviting lighting scheme. Real estate property
When modeling the sofa, be sure to include some vertical design elements that contrast with the horizontal arrangement of the sofa. One way to do this is to line the sofa with tall plants.
In this pre-war bachelor block, we placed two plants on either side of this gray sofa, drawing attention to a tasteful gallery wall. Another way is to bring large-scale pieces of botanical artwork that define the room to really make a memorable statement if you weren’t blessed with a natural green thumb.
Rugs are a great way to add some necessary textures or patterns to your space. And to keep your space together, get an area rug that incorporates the colors found elsewhere in your design scheme.
Add a sense of the unexpected, bringing indulgent colors even in the smallest doses. While about 95% of the aforementioned design thrives in various shades of gray, an equally subtle and soft pink chair has been added as an attractive element to make the living room even more memorable and unique.
A VIBRATING MIX
For this eclectic Brooklyn family home, our interior designer used the plum gray sofa pictured above as a starting point to add harmony to a litany of the many elements and features that our client was thinking about.
As you can see, it works to tie everything together brilliantly, unlike any other colored sofa. Imagine the visual noise you would hear if the sofa was fiery red or how you would lose yourself in the room if it was pure white.
Who says a gray sofa means all business and no jokes? As we did in this family in Old Greenwich, CT, use a gray sofa to fight more fun items like children’s toys housed in this game room.
Your gray sofa will end up doing its double duty as an anchor for all the various elements it loves to play with and will be able to resist stains much better than a lighter colored sofa has ever been able to.
While gray evokes a sense of balanced strength, go up a step and follow completely symmetrical with the arrangement of the furniture for a uniform and uniform feeling.
This will make it easier for you to decorate your gray sofa than to compete with it. The key here is to find ways to incorporate visual interest without being distracted. Once again, this is where the strength of the cushions and prints comes into play, because the room presented above would be undeniably cold without them.
Play a chord with your elegant gray sofa, keeping the rest of the room simple and decorated with a light hand to keep everything within reach while you still stimulate it.
For the project presented above, our interior designer reflected the rigid lines of the gray sofa with vertical cushions, as well as the furniture and accessories that followed. The key here was to compensate for the rigor of the setup with abstract elements such as watercolor hanging on the gray sofa and various accessories throughout.
Since a gray sofa is a standard accessory in any home with a minimal design, extend your Spartan charm with a range of scattered shaded grays to create a relaxing vision of cozy minimalism.
To accentuate the decidedly gray direction of our San Francisco project, our interior designer emphasized the gray focus of the living rooms, placing dark gray blue screens behind the TV as a stimulating background full of energy and spirit.
