Tips for Decorating with Gray

    (Provided by ABC Glass & Mirror, Inc. - Tuesday, June 23, 2015)

Gray is a favorite pick among decorators today. Similar to white in its ability to match everything, gray brings greater depth and interest to a room. Flat grays and silvery shades are both popular in bathrooms, bedrooms, and living rooms of many styles. Gray lends itself to modern spaces, Victorian-themed rooms, ranch-style homes, and more. Also, while gray works well as the primary color for a room, it also provides the perfect backdrop for colorful furniture, wall art, rugs, and so forth.

It is easy to use gray and silver in a bath area, and these restful colors can help you create a spa-like retreat in your own house. Tips for using gray and silver in a bathroom include –

·         -Paint an “accent wall” gray.

·         -Choose solid gray curtains or curtains with a gray pattern.

·         -Hang a vanity mirror in a silver or gray frame.

·         -Choose gray tinted glass for your shower door.

·         -Place a plush gray bath mat next to the tub.

·         -Select silvery hardware for your shower enclosure, sink, towel bars, light fixtures, etc.

·         -Use gray tile in your shower and/or on the bathroom floor.

Utilize gray to give your master bedroom an ambience that combines elegance and repose. Décor elements that could help you achieve this look include

·         Night tables with silver legs and glass tabletops

·         Flowing draperies in gray or silvery tones

·         Curtains around the bed

·         A framed mirror hung above a gray desk or makeup table

Introduce gentle accent colors by way of decorative bed pillows, candles on wall sconces, painted picture frames, or fancy lamp shades.

Finally, gray and silver work marvelously in living room settings. These colors are effective tools for designing a relaxing space where your family and friends can gather.

·         Pair gray with a bright color to give the room vibrancy.

·         Include some gray patterned items to maintain the tranquil color scheme while increasing visual appeal.

·         Hang an antique-style silver chandelier from the living room ceiling.

·         Swap out the wood door fronts on your living room bookcases for gray tinted cabinet glass.
