Small Grey Living Room Decorating Ideas

57 Cozy Grey Living Room Pictures and Decorating Tips:

1. Use Pops of Color

When decorating your small grey living room, lien it up with pops of color to make your room aesthetic and cozy.

Grey, on it’s own, can appear cold, but when mixed with pops of color and the right accent color scheme, you can really make your small living room feel cozy and inviting.

Don’t be afraid to get a little “eclectic” with your decor items. As you can see in the picture, the larger square coffee table and chunky candles mixed with the off white fuzzy accent rug all give dimension and character to this small apartment living room space.

2. Make It Cozy

A grey and white living room doesn’t have to feel “cold” and unwelcoming – use soft textures and comfy throw pillows to make your grey living room warm and cozy.

3. Combine Aesthetics

To make your living room aesthetic, mix up textures and decor accessories – like this cozy grey living room in the picture – they mixed the modern coffee table in front of the dark grey sectional with a farmhouse TV cabinet.

It looks really nice!

4. Make a Dark Grey Couch Stand Out

If you have (or want) a DARK grey couch, be sure to combine it with a LIGHT grey wall color to be sure your dark sofa stands out (the best paint colors for a grey living room are down below).

Also, choose a bright white colored focus piece on your coffee table to add dimension and depth to your living room.

5. Minimal CAN Be Cozy

A living room does NOT need tons of stuff to make it feel warm, cozy and welcoming.

If you prefer a more modern and minimalist decorating style, this small grey living room in the picture above might be perfect for you.

The textured alternating colored throw pillows and that beautiful blush pink throw blanket makes that lounge space on the couch look VERY cozy – I’d LOVE to “Netflix and chill” on that couch, wouldn’t you?

And WOW at that beautiful extra large wall clock behind that small sofa!

6. Add a Feminine Touch

Grey living rooms do NOT have to be monotone and boring – give your small space a feminine touch like this tiny apartment living room.

LOTS of shades of pink accents in her decor mixed with fluffy throw pillows and a BIG mirror on the wall behind the couch to make the living room bigger and brighter.

7. Use Grey As Your Accent Color

If you currently have a neutral or tan couch and neutral wall color, you can still make your apartment living room feel and look like a GREY living room by using shades of grey accent pieces (which is perfect when you can’t paint, etc when you rent and might risk losing your security deposit).

This tiny apartment living room is definitely a grey-themed living room, but if you look close, the couch is tan and the walls are off-white.

By using dark grey and light grey throw pillows and a dark grey accent area rug, this living room appears to be a grey color scheme – but it’s only the accent pieces that achieve that look.

8. Use Some Navy Blue

This is a VERY small living room inside a tiny house, but I love how they mixed navy blue into the grey living room color scheme.

The living room looks warm and cozy even though the open floor plan shares space with a white modern kitchen area.

It’s SO pretty, don’t you think?

9. Use Grey Patterned Accents

This small living room has a BROWN couch and used grey and white accent pieces to bring in the grey color scheme decor (the accent chair, the throw pillows, the area rug, the coffee end table etc).

And WOW, I just LOVE that brick accent wall, don’t you?

Hygge Decorating Tips

Take a look at these ideas to make your small living room warm, cozy and… “hygge”.

What IS a “hygge” living room?

Hygee (pronounced: hue-guh) is a Danish term that means “cozy”.

Hygee decorating is a decor style that alludes that warm and cozy feel – as if the room is giving you a hug.

That’s exactly what we want our warm and cozy grey living room to feel like; a hug.

Dark Grey Living Room Ideas

This small living room uses LOTS of DARK grey – which I’d normally think is too much, but it sure still has a warm and cozy feel to it.

What makes YOU feel warm and cozy in a room?

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!

Neutral gray living room decor

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.

Neutral living room with subtle pops of color

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.

Neutral earthy living room with pop of color

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.

Gray living room decor

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.
