In the living room, I have two grey sofas and I am not sure about the color of the rug and the draperies. The living room is rather small and I believe that a grey rug could make space look even smaller. One wall is lilac and the others off-white. I would really appreciate your advice, I feel kind of lost... Anna
At first we should underline that grey color is the king of neutral colors and it practically matches with all colors. So your real dilemma is the other colors of the room. Unfortunately, you don’t give any information about the style of the living room, your preferences, the brightness of the room and the type of furniture.
Now in relation to the rug and its color, we think that you should match it with the sofa. If you want to highlight the rug then opt for a darker tone but if you want to highlight the sofa opt for a lighter tone. Although we don’t know the exact tone of your sofa’s grey, we think that you should choose a lighter tone for the rug. Grey sometimes becomes depressing. An interesting combination could be a light beige rug with the grey sofa.
In relation to the draperies, it is a good idea to opt for solid color fabrics, either pale or vivid. Your choice depends mostly on your preferences and the brightness of the room. A safe choice is to choose a similar tone with the lilac wall, for example a deep red or a pastel purple. To add more color drop some solid color pillows.
In case you love color and our advice is too dull for your personality, then opt for a solid color rug. A could choice is to pick a deep red rug. To balance the overall effect, since too much passion is not always manageable, make sure that draperies are light and neutral, such as beige and of white.
