10 Grey & Navy Living Rooms To Inspire Your Next Decorating Project
One of the biggest google search trends this year in terms of interiors has been grey and navy living rooms, so with that knowledge we searched the web high and low to bring you 10 of the best spaces that integrate both colours seamlessly.
Although more of a traditional pairing, blue and grey manages to work across a plethora of interior styles, such as mid-century modern, eclectic, industrial and contemporary – as you’ll see from the spaces we’ve highlighted below.
A more eclectic setting, with an abundance of texture and soft furnishings, the use of wood on the coffee table and stained mirror adds warmth to this living room.
Blue and grey can work perfectly in a contemporary setting like this open plan apartment, utilising a feature wall, while adding splashes of similar blue tones through the rug, throw and cushions.
Working with navy and grey in a more traditional sense, this striking blue wall creates the perfect backdrop for the white marble fireplace and ash flooring.
How stunning does this blue velvet chesterfield sofa look against the charcoal grey backdrop? This colour combination works well in a room filled with natural light, while the clever placement of the mirror allows that light to bounce back in and around the room.
Using various shades of blue like the styling team at John Lewis here adds depth to the space, especially when used in soft furnishings like drapes and cushions. Light floors also stop the room from looking too small.
The beauty of this space is that it blends traditional architecture with more Scandinavian elements such as the natural wood coffee table and linen throw, showing just how versatile a navy and grey colour palette can be.
If you’re looking to update a contemporary space which is predominately grey, adding blue in pieces such as artwork and cushions can uplift the room instantly. Team with chrome and metallic finishes for a luxe feel.
By painting the ceiling, you can create maximum impact, as shown in this navy and grey living room. Lighter floors help stop the room from feeling closed in, and lighter grey furnishings are the perfect contrast to the rich blue walls.
To add interest to a blue and grey living room, consider a pop of colour from a statement occasional chair like this orange 70s design above, and decorative details like trays, trinkets, lamps and artwork – all of which brighten this room up perfectly.
Finally, don’t assume you have to just use paint when creating a navy and grey living space – wallpaper as used above can look incredibly chic, especially on a feature wall. The wallpaper adds depth to the room and stops it looking as flat as it might with paint on such high ceilings.
