Decorating a Gray Sectional

Here are some tips for decorating a living room with a gray sectional:

  • Add pops of color. Bright accent pillows, a colorful area rug, or artwork with bold hues will liven up the neutral gray. Try teal, yellow, green, or even bright white.
  • Incorporate natural textures. Throws, pillows or poufs made from nubby wool, cotton or linen will add cozy texture and keep things from feeling too sleek or cold. You can layer in sheepskins or a fuzzy rug too.
  • Use warm metals and wood tones. Brass, copper or bronze accents and wooden coffee tables, end tables or picture frames will make the room feel warmer and more inviting. Avoid chrome or stainless steel.
  • Feature interesting lighting. Drum pendant lights, vintage-style lamps with Edison bulbs or an eye-catching floor lamp will all complement the gray while making a style statement.
  • Add plenty of pillows and blankets. Layering the sectional with pillows in different shapes, sizes and fabrics will maximize comfort while adding visual depth and dimension. Toss a chunky blanket over the back for extra coziness.
  • Display crisp white accessories. White ceramic vases, bowls, candlesticks or trays will create a nice contrast next to the gray. Greenery, flowers or candles will enliven these accessories.
  • Mount a statement mirror or piece of art. This will draw attention to the wall behind the gray sectional and make the seating area feel more like a focal point.
