I’ve been on a bit of a Pinterest kick lately. Specifically, home décor stuff. All sorts of it.
One thing I’ve realized lately is that I’m totally in love with a grey color scheme. I’m sure this is probably because my house is basically tan everywhere you turn and I’m just over it and like to make things difficult for myself. I actually think that’s part of the reason why I wanted to try to sell our new couches a couple of months ago (which we never sold, by the way).
And now, knowing that I could totally still go grey with my tan couches? I’m totally obsessed with the grey and tan color scheme.
An interior designer I definitely am NOT, so I would have never thought to put these two colors together?! But I really think that with a little updated paint, some new throw pillows, and maybe some new accessories, I could totally grab the look in our living room.
Here is some of my “Pin-spiration” for potential ideas…
I feel like that picture most closely resembles what we already have with the darker tan couches and dark coffee table. I’d want to go a little lighter with the grey paint color though.
I absolutely love the look ok this picture, but it’s really nothing like what we have…and it definitely doesn’t look too kid friendly.
I pinned this photo because it just looked a bit more like my house…pillows all over, animals…all it’s missing are about 1,894 toys.
Absolutely obsessed with these pillow cases. Love the lighter, muted tones of the grey paired with that tan.
Some potential color options…love having it all on the same palette. Makes it much more easy to envision.
Loved this for an idea of some various accessories to add in. I’d love to be able to add a contrasting accent chair someday, in a darker grey. But the practical side of me would much rather prefer a nice big, comfy recliner.
Technically, we really don’t need a coffee table. And I love ours for the sake that it lifts up and down and is SUPER convenient. But there’s something about this one that I just can’t leave alone. Plus, it’s made from an Ikea table, so I feel like it could probably be made fairly cheap?
So now I’d love to hear from you guys…
- How are you when it comes to interior designing? Do you have that “eye?”
- What are some of your favorite color palettes/combinations?
- Is your current living room what your “dream living room” would look like?
