Today we are here to give your dining room a brand new look!
Looking for a dining room makeover? We bring you a color theme: Gray. Gray is still very much the color of the moment, and it is a shade that works perfectly well in the dining room. Breathe new life into your dining space by choosing a gray combination to suit your style. From moody dark gray to light pastel gray, here we show you how to choose and update your dining room gray.
1- Pair gray with gold for glamour
Celebrate in a gray dining room that’s smart and opulent. Dark charcoal gray makes a sophisticated backdrop, brought to life with gold accents such as upholstery, frames, furniture and a statement clock. Perfect dining room ideas!
2- Create a bright, fresh feel
Frosty shades of pale blue lay beneath these calming, cool gray hues. Cool, light grays are perfect for a small but sunny room where the light can make deeper colors too intense while boosting its feeling of space. Be inspired by Nordic country interiors and use warm mid-gray on the walls in a dining nook as an alternative to white. Add natural rustic elements for texture and warmth, such as wooden candlesticks and a selection of hand-made tableware.
3- Pick the right shade
For an off-white option, soft dove gray is an understated yet smart backdrop for other monochrome shades in a dining room. Team grays with plenty of natural wood and muted accessories for a smart, chic feel.
4- Go for a darker shade of gray
Gray is the perfect backdrop for a gallery of cool and quirky artwork. To recreate this look fill empty wall space above a dining room cabinet with an arrangement of artwork. Create a triangular display, lining up the bottom row with the top line of the furniture, then filling in above with frames at staggered heights. A gray scheme works particularly well with a bright, punchy color in your home decor.
5- Combine gray with wood
We have seen the revival of gray in interiors over the last seasons but this time it’s combined with wood tones to instantly add warmth and depth. Gray can give a calm and relaxed feel to the home, and is a fresh alternative to the classic neutral palette and acts as a great backdrop to introduce splashes of other colors. Seems the perfect ideas for your house design!
6- Think about the position
Gray has many different undertones depending on the shade. Rooms that are south-facing are full of light throughout the day making them warmer in tone. To maximize the space you have, gray colors with hints of soft blue are a great way to accentuate the room even further as they contrast the natural warm tone. North facing rooms have a slighter colder light throughout the rest of the day and as such, could benefit from using a warmer tone. Think about the placement of your room before you reach for the paint can as the overall look of one painting will be completely different in two rooms of opposing sides.
7- Pare it back
Opt for pared-back furniture and accessories. Gray teamed with wood has a naturally Scandinavian feel, so select pieces that will complete the Nordic look. Choose simple, clean lines when mixing two contrasting tones for an elegant, unfussy look. Pair it with the perfect lighting design and voilá!
