If you naturally associate gray with dullness and boringness, then you simply “haven’t tasted” the color’s magic. Still don’t believe us? Then this selection is specifically for you!

We have prepared photos of 30 of the most beautiful gray interiors for every taste, plus tips on achieving each type of look.

There is a stereotype that gray in the interior looks dull and inconspicuous. Just a few people know that gray is actually an excellent basis for the interior, skillfully hiding the flaws of the room, and giving the interior style and nobility if used properly.

A good solution is to use gray of a darker shade as the accent for a niche , allowing you to visually eliminate the entire wall and enlarge the space.

Here is one interesting example where a barely perceptible gray hue flows smoothly into a gray-blue tone. You must agree the look is extraordinarily harmonious.

The classic combination of gray + black + white will always be relevant, helping you add expressiveness to the living room, especially if it is in the Scandinavian style.

Rough textures such as natural stone, concrete or brick will visibly enliven the gray room, so you are free to use them generously.

The abundance of natural light perfectly emphasizes the texture of such walls, so make sure to have as many inlets for natural light as possible.

Pairing gray with white in the living room makes it appear more spacious, more airy and more lit up.

Using a variety of materials such as fur, glass, silver and wood for décor creates immense visual interest, and there’s no way such a living room can be boring.

Even just one bright accent makes a huge difference, breathing life into a gray living room.

Gold-plated ornaments are a great way to add a touch of sunshine to a gray living room. Steer clear of ornaments made of real gold since they can easily get stolen if you display them in the living room.

The owners of this living room are clearly well-versed with the tricks of visual expansion of space.

Not everyone likes bright and bold accents in gray interiors. If you’re such a person, then you probably want the living room to remain neutral, a result you can easily achieve.
