A mix between black and white, gray is by definition a neutral. Decorating with gray can can be warm or cool, dark and dramatic or bright and beautiful. I am very into gray, but only if the trim is right. If you don’t want to paint your living room white, but want to keep the space nice and bright, pale gray is a great alternative. It can be a flat, boring color so choose your tone with care. Chech out these 69 Fabulous Living Room Designs to inspire you!
