Many of my clients want to use the color gray in their homes that are currently filled with beige tile flooring, beige carpet, and beige furniture that they want to keep. Many are concerned that the beige and gray colors will not compliment each other, and they are right to be concerned. The main reason why beige and gray do not often work well together is because beige is a warm color and gray is a cool color. With proper planning, we can decorate each room in a way that makes the beige and gray look intentional.
How to Decorate with Gray and Beige in the Same Room
- Written by Kerry
The one trick to making the colors beige and gray play nicely together is to decorate with at least one large item that is both beige and gray. In the bedroom photo above, the Euro pillows are both beige and gray that ties the two colors together and makes the colors look intentional. In the living room photo above, the artwork has both beige and gray that allows the different color pillows on the sofa to work well together. In the bathroom photo above, the wallpaper contains both beige and gray that tie the beige wall color and the gray vanity color together.
